Chocolate Banana Smoothie
I’m a chocoholic. Sweets are totally my jam but they’re also my downfall because I just can’t get enough. So, I’m always looking for ways to satisfy my sweet tooth while still fueling up.
This Chocolate Almond Butter Smoothie recipe is a favorite of mine because it’s ready in just a couple minutes with ingredients I keep around ALL THE TIME. And it’s rich, chocolate-y flavor totally checks the box when I’m looking for a sweet treat to indulge in.

How To Make A Smoothie
This Chocolate Banana Smoothie is a cinch to make in just a couple minutes.
Start with a ripe, frozen banana, Open Nature Vanilla Protein Powder, your favorite plant based yogurt, O Organics Unsweetened Almond Milk, Open Nature Almond Butter, cocoa powder and coconut flakes.
Blend together in a blender until smooth.
Pour into a glass and enjoy.
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.
