2 Ingredient Chocolate Covered Banana Smoothie!

This past week I have been craving bananas like crazy! In my cereal, with peanut butter, in smoothies, everything! So today I decided I was going to try a smoothie where the banana wasn't really competing with other flavors. I realized I had chocolate almond milk in the fridge and it just seemed like a match made in heaven! This smoothie is super quick and healthy for you too! Added bonus it tastes exactly like chocolate covered bananas!


- 2 small ripe bananas
- 2 small frozen bananas
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate almond milk
- 2 tsp coconut flakes (optional for topping)

We always have frozen bananas in our house, we buy them in bulk when they go on sale and freeze them when the get extra ripe. We use them in our smoothies pretty much everyday, and when you add frozen fruit you don't have to add ice! 

We also have a Blendtec blender which is pretty powerful, it doesn't have a problem chopping up half frozen bananas. I would suggest chunking or slicing your bananas prior to freezing them if you have a regular blender so you don't end up with big chunks of banana or burning up your blender.

Pretty simple just add all of your ingredients to the blender and blend until it's smooth! :)

And that's it! I chose to add 2 tsp of coconut flakes but you could add any topping you want, sliced almonds would've been nice as well! Or you could just leave it plain and omit those extra calories ;)

This will make about 2 1/2 cups of smoothie so enough for 2 servings. Each serving without the coconut is 205 calories and with the coconut is 265 calories.
