Key Ingredients You’ll Need
Bananas: You will want to use frozen bananas. Using frozen bananas will help a ton when it comes to a thick and creamy smoothie. Another ingredient for a thick and creamy smoothie is rolled oats and nut butter.
Cocoa Powder: I prefer using the Hershey brand for the best quality chocolate flavor.
How To Make Chocolate Banana Smoothie
Step 1. Prepare your bananas for 2 hours or overnight before making your smoothie. You will need to make sure they are peeled before freezing. In a blender, add all the ingredients and combine until smooth.
Step 2. In a glass, pour in the blended ingredients and top with chocolate chips before serving. Enjoy!
What Toppings To Put On A Chocolate Banana Smoothie?
There is a ton of different toppings you can enjoy on this smoothie. I love adding nuts, chocolate chips, whipped cream, or fresh fruit. Some great fruits to add on top of this recipe are fresh bananas, strawberries, blueberries, cherries, raspberries, etc.
How To Store A Chocolate Banana Smoothie?
Place the leftovers in a sealed container to store in the fridge for the best storage method. If you want to freeze, I recommend freezing the smoothie in ice cubes, then placing it in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag.
