How to Enjoy a Chocolate Banana Protein Smoothie

This smoothie can be a quick breakfast on-the-go, a post workout drink, a snack, or how I enjoy them the most- when I'm menstruating.


  • Frozen Banana: a staple in our home. Makes smoothies creamy and great for nice-cream 🙂
  • Peanut Butter: feel free to use a nut butter of your choice
  • Cocoa Powder: for the chocolate effect
  • Maple Syrup: for a bit of sweetness
  • Pea Protein: or your preferred protein. Just make adjustments if it's sweetened or flavored
  • Soy Milk: this is what we commonly use, but other milk alternatives are fine to use

Can I Use Bananas That Aren't Frozen?

Yep! BUT, frozen bananas are what give smoothies their perfectly creamy texture. You can add a few ice cubes instead, just note that the texture will be different.


  • Skip the maple syrup if you're using a sweetened protein powder
  • Add more liquid if its too thick
