Chocolate Lover's Almond Smoothie
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 1 serving
  • ¾ cup chocolate dairy-free almond milk beverage
  • ½ banana (frozen for a thicker shake)
  • 2 tablespoons almonds or walnuts (see note below)
  • 1 tablespoon plant-based protein powder (see note below)
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 3 ice cubes
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup, or to taste
  1. Place the milk beverage, banana, nuts, protein powder, cocoa, and ice in your blender and blend on high speed until smooth.
  2. Taste test and blend in the sweetener, to taste, if needed.
Alisa's Notes:
Going Nuts - If you have them on hand, I recommend using lightly salted nuts. Just a pinch of salt really heightens the flavors in smoothies.
Protein Power - For the protein powder, I recommend using one with a pea protein base for the creamiest results. The recipe uses plain protein powder. If you opt for a vanilla or chocolate protein powder, then you may want to skip the added sweetener.
Fruity Option - If you want a sweeter chocolate almond smoothie, but don't want to add honey or maple syrup, you can blend in 1 soft pitted medjool date instead.
