Banana Split Smoothie.

While perusing Pinterest (as I often find myself doing) I found this quick recipe for Chocolate Banana Smoothies. It just so happened that I had all the ingredients needed for it, as well as some fresh strawberries. So I call this my Banana Split Smoothie. It's really very simple, as you will see.

Banana Split Smoothie

What you need:
• One frozen banana
• 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
• 4 strawberries (optional)

1. Put all ingredients into the blender.

2. Blend until banana is broken up.

3. Drink!

See? I told you it was easy. 

There isn't a Mike Meter for this one because I drank it all before he had a chance to taste it. Plus, he's sick so he wouldn't be able to accurately judge it, anyway.

Some tips:
• Be sure to peel the banana PRIOR to freezing. Trust me, it's really hard to remove a banana peel from a frozen banana. [hmph!] Seriously, trust me :)
• For a creamier consistency, add a little bit of milk.

Happy Smoothi-ing!


  1. I may have to try this one out! But...all of my bananas are frozen in their peels =/

  2. Well it's possible to get them out of the peel, but from experience, it just takes a while. I cut it in half and stood it up and sliced the sides off with a knife. It made me sad to lose some of the delicious banana.... You could also spoon it out like you would an avocado, maybe.

  3. thanks for the banana tip! i'd have no clue;-)
