Yum and easy I've made this many times but this time I did not have the frozen bananas so i threw in some ice cubes along with the soft bananas and it was still awesome. Save yourself some time and just use the ice cubes instead of waiting for the bananas to freeze. Pros: Easy to make Read More

Tasty substitutions I didn't have soft tofu so sub'd nonfat plain greek yogurt which has lots of protein and a creamy texture. I added a bit more honey to taste and it was tasty! The recommended amount of honey isn't quite enough but you don't need a lot more. I also used almond milk adding a bit more than was called for. Didn't freeze the banana either. Might add cinnamon next time... Pros: Easy quick healthy protein packed Cons: Bland Read More

SO YUMMY!!! It tastes so good it's hard to believe it's good for you. My alteration was to half the cocoa as suggested by other reviews and use half the honey. I also added a Tbsp of chia seeds. Will be making this often probably with yogart (instead of tofu since I rarely have tofu on hand). Pros: healthy and delicious Cons: just a few adjustments Read More

Tastes passable Made this recipe to the letter. The amount of smoothie I got was about 2 cups over all. I used really ripe bananas so that the banana flavor would be strong but after mixing it together the banana flavor isnt there at all. The chocolate powder simply overpowers it. I used ghirardelli powdered cocoa powder. I'd probably reduce the amount of cocoa powder next time. Also this smoothie isnt sweet or even slightly sweet. Im guessing it depends on how much sugar the bananas have. 1 tablespoon of honey just doesnt cut it. I like mine sweeter I guess. Its not that great of a chocolate banana smoothie recipe. It could use more banana punch and a sweeter touch but that is adjustable. I'm drinking this recipe right now hah. But probably my last time making this. Pros: Few ingredients Cons: Not much banana flavor. Chocolate really overpowers Read More
