CHOCOLATE MONKEY SMOOTHIE RECIPE

January 25, 2017

I discovered the “chocolate monkey” smoothie at my local smoothie and supplement store, and I basically bought one every single day for two months.

I felt a little ridiculous that I always ordered the same thing, and even more ridiculous that I was spending $7 on a smoothie every day when really I could probably just make my own smoothie at home.

One summer morning as the guy was making my order, I tilted my baseball cap down extra low, crept closer to the smoothie bar and secretly watched his every move to see just how he made it. I took some serious mental notes and next, I obviously headed to the grocery store and bought the ingredients .

I’ve made it over and over again at home and it never gets old.  I love it, my husband loves it, and my kids love it as well.  It makes a delicious post-workout snack, or an anytime snack, fulfills that sweet craving, that chocolate craving and anything- in- between craving. This recipe is just too good to be true, so I simply must share it.

Put the following ingredients into a blender:

  1. 1.5 cups of organic chocolate almond milk (I prefer unsweetened)
  2. 1 scoop of Sunwarrior Chocolate Protein Powder (I recommend half a scoop for a child)
  3. 1 frozen organic banana
  4. 1 tsp organic cacao powder
  5. 1 heaping tbsp organic almond butter
  6. 1/4 cup chopped up organic medjool dates (optional)

chocolate banana smoothie

Blend on high power.  Enjoy!
