HOW TO MAKE A CHOCOLATE SMOOTHIE

This Chocolate Banana Smoothie is a cinch to make in just a couple minutes.

You can sweetened your smoothie with honey or maple syrup but the banana provides plenty of sweetness all on it’s own. The coconut flakes don’t add a ton of flavor but contain manganese which is great for bone health. If you’re not a fan of coconut, you can leave it out.

I shopped at ACME Markets in the Philadelphia, PA area, but you can also find O Organics® products exclusively at the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, Safeway, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Randalls, Shaw’s Supermarket. Shop O Organics® affordable high-quality products at your local ACME Markets store.

ACME Markets also offers Grocery Delivery and Pick Up for convenient ways to shop!

  1. “This Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie recipe is a favorite of mine”

    Respectfully, since there is no peanut butter anywhere in the recipe, unless the protein powder is from peanuts, or you substitute peanut butter for the almond butter (which is not even suggested), it should be titled Chocolate Almond Butter Smoothie. But it’s titled instead ‘Chocolate Banana Smoothie.’ Not what the e-mail is titled. What happened?

    • Brain fart. So sorry for the misleading information but this is, in fact, a Chocolate Banana Smoothie that you could add peanut butter to in place of the almond butter. My apologies for making you click due to my error.
