I am a big green smoothie gal. Sometimes my smoothies are a bright green color and other times, the greens are hidden and you would never know there is spinach or kale added. Usually the latter is a great options for kids. They get a chocolate shake and you get to fill their tummies with spinach. Win win for everyone.

I am so loving this particular smoothie because it is loaded with cacao antioxidants, potassium and fiber from the bananas and protein from the almond milk. I do, however, enjoy a green smoothie, where I can taste or see the greens, and there are just days, I want a delicious chocolate smoothie and throw in some greens for good measure.

Are you a green smoothie drinker? What is your go-to smoothie?

    Sounds delicious! I start most days with a green smoothie and recently have been using some chocolate flavoring in mine. It’s a fun way to start the day, especially if I’m having a hard time getting out the door!

    I love green smoothies, but they can get a little old. This one is a good way to mix it up. What better combo than chocolate, nut butter, and bananas?

  10. Charise @ I Thought I Knew Mama February 14, 2013 at 1:51 pm #

    Just coming back to say how awesome this recipe is! My 2 year old and I both loved it. In case anyone else doesn’t have all ingredients on hand, we substituted coconut milk for almond milk and raw honey for the dates/maple syrup option. So good!

      Thanks, Charise!!!You are right, any milk and sweetener works! :) Glad you liked it!

    I’m new to green smoothies. My first didn’t come out well. I’m going to give your recipe a try.

    • Good Girl Gone Green February 15, 2013 at 1:29 pm #

      This one isn’t too sweet and you do not taste the greens, but they are there!

    Awesome. I am newbie green drinker and was skeptical. This is a real treat. The color green throws me off so I put it in a travel mug with a straw and its like any frozen treat.

  19. Karin January 17, 2014 at 11:38 am #

    This was amazing! I used kale since I had some I was trying to use up. I omitted the cinnamon and added coconut oil to make it taste like an Almond Joy. It was absolutely delicious!

    I have all the ingredients, and I’m hungry. Now if I could just find a way to keep the blender from waking up sleeping significant others…
