Chocolate Banana Smoothie

Sharing is caring!

The taste of this chocolate banana smoothie reminds me of a fudgy, chocolatey brownie. It’s in the realm of the dessert smoothie category, especially if you add some delicious, chocolate curls on top. The flax seeds give it a touch of nuttiness plus some added nutrients and fiber. It’s popular with kids and adults!

Ingredients

Chocolate banana smoothie ingredients prepped on wooden serving board.
  • unsweetened almond milk
  • vanilla extract
  • cocoa powder
  • flax seeds – You can use brown or golden flax seeds. The golden seeds are a tad sweeter in flavor but the brown ones contain more antioxidants. Besides, you might enjoy the bolder flavor.
  • bananas – sliced and frozen
  • agave nectar – You can use liquid honey instead, but keep in mind that it won’t be vegan anymore if you do. This is optional and you might find it sweet enough without it. So, before adding the sweetener, give it a taste test.
  • optional toppings – Flax seeds and chocolate curls are perfect for chocolate smoothies.
