Starbucks recently came out with a chocolate banana smoothie, and — yes — it tastes as good as it looks on their advertisement. Smooth, creamy, chocolatey and… bananaey?
Not sure that word is in the dictionary, but it should be.
Anyway, I took one sip and was then addicted. That, however, is a problem, since #1 there is no Starbucks closer than 20 minutes away from my house and #2 I can’t afford to drink Starbucks on a regular basis.
So what is a girl to do?
Create her own chocolate-banana smoothie, of course!
This smoothie is SO refreshing and has the amazing combination of chocolate and bananas for flavor… while packing in plenty of potassium, protein and calcium. Seriously, what’s not to love? (Oh, yeah, and it calls for only three ingredients. So it’s great for busy mornings or lazy afternoons!).
Chocolate Banana Smoothie (Makes one smoothie)
1 cup chocolate soy milk
1 medium, ripe banana (frozen)
small container vanilla yogurt (either 6 oz or 8oz works)
Add all three ingredients to blender and blend away until smoothie is thick and frothy. Pour into a glass and enjoy! 🙂
