This chocolate banana smoothie is based on a classic ice cream flavor. Yet I’ve upgraded this smoothie for maximum flavor and nutrients. It’s like drinking a dessert! Almond butter adds a boost of protein while cacao powder adds in powerful antioxidants. 



  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 1/22 bananas, frozen
  • 1 Tablespoon almond butter*
  • 2 Tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean powder
  • *Swap almond butter for 10 grams Protein Smoothie Boost


  1. Place spinach and almond milk in blender. Puree until smooth.
  2. Add bananas, almond butter, and cacao, and blend again.


Use frozen bananas to make smoothie cold.
