A smoothie is a healthy way to get fruit and protein in a portable and satisfying meal. This smoothie delivers plenty of protein with flavors inspired by a banana split.

"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...

Healthy Delicious

I went out to the shops and purchased all the required ingredients and made it to specification, it was delicious. I will definitely be making another one of these smoothies in the coming days!

Good for you, tastes delicious

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.

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!!

Chocolaty, Low Calorie
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!


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!
