Quite delicious and not full of sugar!:) Added a packet of Starbucks Via instant coffee for a lift and a packet of Splenda. I mixed together everything but the soy milk and froze it over night then stuck it in the blender the next morning with the soy milk and blended it. Makes it thicker. You could use yogurt instead of tofu but it adds a lot of sugar. Read More

I like to use frozen banana and a handful of ice cubes. This makes it very thick. Sometimes I like to add a teaspoon of cinnamon and/or a shot of espresso. Yum!! Pros: Low cal high protein Cons: Have to wash out the blender after... 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

TOO MUCH COCOA Followed the recipe as is. But than it contains too much cocoa to the point where that is all you taste. I definitely suggest cutting the 2 tablespoons of cocoa by half (to only 1 tbsp) and adding an extra 1/3 cup of milk to balance out the cocoa. I also would replace the honey with sugar as it compliments the cocoa better if you can. Read More

Changed it up a little to reduce calories! I drink this smoothie or a fruit smoothie almost every day for breakfast! To reduce calories I only use 1 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder instead of 2 I use 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk instead of soy (20 calories) I reduce the honey and use a little less of the tofu. Then I add ice and a frozen banana. It's delish!! Pros: Chocolaty Low Calorie Read More

Pretty good I tried this for the first time and will try again with some changes. I used almond/coconut milk instead of soy since I was getting soy with tofu. The chocolate taste is overwhelming so I will definitely cut that in half. My banana wasn't perfectly ripe so I didn't get a great banana flavor. I think I will try with half chocolate and a tablespoon of peanut butter. I've been looking for a protein packed (non berry) smoothie for a pre boot camp workout for a while so hopefully it will give me the energy today! Read More

I just tried this recipe but tweaked it because I did not have all the ingredients. I used 1/2 cup of Organic Fat Free milk 2 ripe bananas 4 ice cubes 2 tbsp of Unsweetened Hershey Coco powder 1 Tbsp of flax seed and some Organic crunchy PB. It has a nice chocolate & nutty taste! Read More

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

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

As a chocoholic I love this smoothie! It keeps me feeling full longer and satisfies the sweet tooth. I use unsweetened almond milk and agave nector (instead of honey). When I can't get silken tofu I've used firm tofu and blended a bit longer. Also slicing and freezing the banana overnight seems to make it more like a milkshake. Mmmmmm. Read More

I was just coming on to complain how I've never been able to get two servings out of this recipe and come to find out it only serves one! With that in mind it is a pretty good smoothie. Very rich definitely satisfying. I used dark cocoa powder. It's not super sweet but definitely very good. Read More
