Have you ever had a frozen chocolate covered banana?
Are you a fan?
If so, then you will love this Banana Pop Smoothie! I’ve been trying to work on some new recipes and variations of old recipes for my new smoothie / protein powder book. Things are going slow because it’s so hard for me to get creative with smoothies when most of the ingredients are cold and it’s freezing outside! But, I know there are folks out there who drink smoothies year-round. I am one of them, even though it can be hard. I’m really hoping to get my book done by 2015 …so you know, I can push it during the big New Years Resolution ( weight loss) boom. I’m not ashamed. LOL
I love a quick breakfast. Especially one that has a lot of goodies in it and you won’t even know. Part greenie, party dessert. Total yum.
I’ve got a contest coming up very soon for some wonderful protein powder. So keep your eyes peeled ( or just bookmark this post) for that giveaway.
Banana Pop Smoothie
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 8 oz. skim milk
- 1 frozen banana pealed
- 1 cup spinach
- Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
Disclosure: I was given a free Ideal Shape protein powder to facilitate my review and create my recipes. Opinions are 100% mine. If I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t use it!
I love banana milkshakes. I wonder if this has a similar taste. I also love chocolate. 🙂
I have to be honest and say that banana flavor is not my favorite but the chocolate just may make it ok for me. Can’t wait to try it!
I’ve tried very few smoothies because I can find a combo I like. I love adding the chocolate powder sounds like a yummy one!
Liz Mays says
Actually, I think I’d like the smoothie better than the real thing! This sounds delicious!
Robin (Masshole Mommy) says
I love a good smoothie – especially a banana one- but my kids are such pills – they won’t drink one no matter what flavor combo I make them. It’s so weird.
That’s the way to make a smoothie! I love the spinach in there, that’s a cool way to get my kids to love their greens.
Amy Desrosiers says
I am not a fan of plain protein powder. However, your recipe sounds so delicious!

This sounds like a delicious way to kick start your day! And a great way to get in more protein too!

I am allergic to bananas so I can’t try this. I think my husband would really enjoy it.
I love bananas in my smoothies. This sounds like a great way to get some healthy options in your diet
We do smoothies year round here, and love the taste of chocolate and banana together. I need to mix it up too though – because the same 2-3 smoothie recipes we use are getting a little boring.
Ann Bacciaglia says
