Chocolate Banana Smoothie Delight

Chocolate Banana Smoothie DelightThe past few days have blessed us with some very hot and humid weather that has had me dashing inside every 15 minuets for another drink of water….  So – during one of those “dashes” to the house  for a drink, I decided that i wanted something different than just plain ol’ water again, so i rummaged through the cupboards and freezer for a bit and finally found some random item’s that i decided would work to make-up this concoction i named a – Chocolate Banana Smoothie!   – A great thing about this recipe is that it’s a superb excuse for you to use-up your over-ripened bananas!  😉

Ingredients:

 2-3 medium size Banana’s

1 large scoop of Vanilla Yogurt

 1 &1/2 tablespoons Coco Powder

 1/2 cup Milk (or more) [ also you could use chocolate milk to give it a richer more “chocolaty” flavor!;) ]

 Ice Cubes (i put about a handful)

Whipped Cream (optional)

Directions: Dump all the ingredients into blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy!   ~ Serve in pretty glasses (or not! lol) with a dollop of Whipped Cream! ~

Happy Smoothie Making & Bon Appètit!
