Dark chocolate, peanut butter and banana smoothie

Making smoothies is something that we make very often at my house, at least 3-4 times per week. I find it to be a very easy way to include powerful nutrients in our diet and the kids love them. I even use this method to freeze some and make ice pops. You can’t never go wrong with healthy ice pops :-)

This chocolate, peanut butter and banana smoothie is one of our favorites, and lets not forget the spinach and strawberry I made a while back. That one is also a FAV :-).

I used dark chocolate because it has much more properties, such as antioxidants, but you can use what ever chocolate you have on hand.

I will be posting some other variations very soon. If you are looking to incorporate more fruits and veggies in your diet making smoothies is a very easy and practical way to do it.


I blend the chocolate chips, cocoa powder, peanut butter and 1 cup of the soy milk first. Then I add the remaining ingredients.

Your kids and yourself will love this amazing chocolate and peanut butter smoothy. The frozen bananas gives it the milk shake consistency kids love!!


Dark chocolate, peanut butter and banana smoothie

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 4 servings


3 cups of almond milk
2-3 frozen bananas, chopped
1 tablespoon unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips ( 70% cocoa chocolate its better)
1 tablespoon raw cacao nibs (optional)
1/4 cup flax seed meal
2-3  tablespoons organic peanut butter.


In a blender add the chocolate chips, cocoa nibs, cocoa powder, peanut butter and 1 cup almond milk. Blend for about 30 seconds. Add other remaining ingredients and blend until liquefied.

You can also freeze these on individual 3 oz Dixie cups for the kids. I do sometimes.

    Can’t wait to try this – sounds wonderful. I’m going to try it using peanut butter power because then it would have less fat and calories.

    Would 2% work? This sounds good. May have to get flax from my mom.

    I used to manage a dairy queen/ orange julius a few years ago. My favorite thing to make was a banana, peanut butter and cbocolate smoothie.I never understood why this wonderful treat wasn’t on the menu, but when customers would ask me my favorite id offer to make it anyways! Such a deliscious combo of flavors!!

    I make a similar smoothie several times a week but I add a handful of power greens (spinich, kale) and u cant even taste it… also silk makes a dark chocolate almond milk that is great when in a hurry :)

    • Miryam@eatgood4life — April 23rd, 2014 @ 9:17 pm

      Next time I will do that. Thanks for the suggestion :-)

    Never would have thought to add chocolate chips to this type of smoothie–great idea! (Chocolate almond butter smoothies are the best!) :)
