If you’re looking for a healthy way to get your chocolate fix, try out this chocolate banana smoothie recipe. Made with cacao powder, bananas, almond butter, dates, and maca powder, this smoothie packs a healthful punch with plenty of great flavors.
To sweeten this smoothie, we use a banana and date for their natural sugar. The banana also contributes to the creaminess and flavor of the smoothie, so it’s an essential ingredient. The date, on the other hand, can be swapped out for a teaspoon or two of maple syrup or honey if you don’t have any dates on hand.
To give this chocolate banana smoothie an extra boost of nutrients, feel free to use maca powder or moringa powder for their superfood health benefits. You can also throw in a tablespoon of chia seeds for a hefty dose of omega-3 fatty acids.
