Cocoa Banana Smoothie

Cocoa Banana Smoothie

Okay I’ll admit this Cocoa Banana Smoothie isn’t the prettiest, but it is my absolute favorite smoothie 🤣! It may be green, but I promise it tastes like a chocolate milkshake…yum! This is great for breakfast or for an afternoon snack.

This smoothie has oats, flax seed, spinach, bananas, dates and non-dairy milk so it’s loaded with all the good stuff. 

One smoothie has 11g protein, 13g fiber, over 200% of recommended daily amount of vitamin A, healthy fats and no added sugars. The list of nutritional benefits goes on!  When I eat this smoothie and variations of it for breakfast it always keep me full until lunch and gives a boost of energy. I no longer crave a morning coffee after I drink this too!

Serves 1

Ingredients 

  • 1.5 cups Spinach
  • 12 oz Unsweetened Non-Dairy Milk, vanilla flavor
  • 1 medium ripe banana (I suggest using a fresh, non-frozen banana. The riper the banana, the sweeter the smoothie)
  • 1 tbsp Flax Seed, Ground
  • 1 Date
  • 1.5 tbsp Cocoa Powder 
  • 1/3 cup Rolled Oats
  • ~6 ice cubes

Directions

  • Place all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth. The longer you blend, the smoother the oats will be. I prefer to leave them slightly intact for more texture in the smoothie, but that is up to you! 
  • NOTE: I use a ninja blender that has a single serve 16 oz blender cup attachment. I highly recommend it! Everything will blend very smoothly together. 

Try it out a let me know what you think!
