Chocolate Milkshake Smoothie

Somehow, this combination of flavours tastes just like a chocolate milkshake.  And I’m happy to have a healthier chocolate smoothie for breakfast!  By using a frozen banana, you get a great consistency and it’s nice and cold.  If you don’t have a frozen banana on hand, feel free to use a fresh one and throw in a few ice cubes.

And yes, I like smoothies for breakfast in the winter and hot cereal for breakfast in the summer.  So there.

Chocolate Milkshake Smoothie

  • 1 banana, frozen
  • 1/2 cup frozen fruit (I used a blend called “Caribbean Treasure”: strawberry, peach, mango)
  • 1 c. milk (skim, soy, rice, or almond)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • around 1/2 c. water (for smoothifying)

Place all ingredients except water in a blender and blitz until drinkable.  You may need to add the extra water (a little at a time) through the hole at the top to thin it out enough to drink, then enjoy your breakfast dessert!
