With plenty of protein from both tofu and soymilk, this banana-split-inspired breakfast smoothie will keep you satisfied until lunchtime.

"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...

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!

thank you for the tweaking, as I cannot use soy products

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.

Easy to make
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...

Easy, quick, healthy, protein packed
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.
