Spiced Chocolate Banana Smoothie Ingredients

¾ cup milk (or non-dairy milk replacement of your choice)

2 teaspoons cocoa powder
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash of cayenne pepper (omit if sensitive to spice)
Optional sweetener: ½ teaspoon maple syrup or honey


1. In a blender, combine the milk, banana, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and cayenne and blend. Don’t worry if the chocolate chips are still a little chunky.

2. Taste, and add sweetener if necessary (If you use overripe bananas, you may not need additional sweetener).
