Choco-Banana Almond Milk Smoothie

How cool is it that dark chocolate is good for you?! It’s full of anti-oxidants, hardens your tooth enamel, helps keep your blood sugar levels under control, it’s good for your heart AND your brain…need I go on?

My favorite frozen treat has always been a chocolate-covered banana. Sooooo… add dark chocolate to bananas (potassium that helps prevent muscle cramps) and almond milk (no lactose, yet contains minerals that play an important role in energy production)…yummy and even BETTER for you.

My new “go-to” smoothie before my workouts is this creamy and nutritious Choco-Banana Almond Milk Smoothie. It’s basically breakfast in a milkshake, but it’s good for you! Try it – you’ll like it!

    Did recipe exactly but can not get it to be white like the photo. Looks more like chocolate milk. Did you use vanilla flavored almond milk instead of original. Thanks

    Because almonds are naturally very nutritious, almond milk doesn’t need to be fortified. You can make almond milk yourself at home, and it will have the same nutritional value as the almond milk available commercially.
