HOW TO MAKE A CHOCOLATE 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.
ACME Markets also offers Grocery Delivery and Pick Up for convenient ways to shop!
