Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Smoothie

I haven’t been able to post for a few days because I’ve been busy working, but while I have a few extra minutes tonight, I’ll try to catch up with a few recipes that I recently created (my recipes are all created by me, unless noted otherwise) and that I’ve been excited to share!

In a strange, yet incredible way, this smoothie tastes just like banana bread batter, and much more like an indulgent treat than a breakfast smoothie 😉

Ingredients:

2 bananas, cut into coins, frozen

1 banana, cut into coins, fresh

2 Medjool dates, pitted

1/2 avocado

1-2 C spinach, packed

1-2 Tbsp hemp protein powder (I added 4 in my first iteration of this recipe, but feel that it would have tasted better with half the amount)

1 tsp. cinnamon

3/4-1 C unsweetened hemp milk

1 Tbsp. cacao nibs

1 Tbsp. chia seeds

Directions:

Add the frozen bananas, dates, avocado, spinach, cinnamon, and hemp milk to your blender and blend until smooth.  Pour half of the contents into a glass.  Add half of the fresh banana, spreading evenly over the top of the smoothie.  Sprinkle half of the chia seeds over the bananas.  Pour the remaining smoothie over the chia seeds, topping with the remaining banana, chia seeds, and cacao nibs.  Enjoy!
