Banana Mocha Smoothie

Hi everyone!  Well, my vacation officially started at 3:00pm yesterday afternoon.  I can’t tell you how excited this makes me!  We are most definetly looking forward to getting away.  We are leaving saturday for the Gulf of Mexico, ah yes, the Emerald Coast with its cool blue-green waters and sugar white beaches.  My mind is already there, in my beach chair, sand between toes, straw hat on, listening to the gentle waves crashing on the beach and the sound of the seagulls in the background.  I can’t wait to physically be where I have been mentally for a while now.  Did I forget refreshing summer toddy in hand?   Must not forget that my friends….there will be drinking!

Hopefully I will be sharing some of those with you while vacationing, but you know how vacations can be.  For now I am sharing this wonderful little smoothie that I created. The flavor combinations with the banana, the chocolate and the coffee are delicious.  It makes for a wonderful breakfast or a refreshing snack.  I do hope you ENJOY!!!!


1 frozen banana

8 0z almond milk

2 tbsp peanut butter powder

1/2 tsp cocoa powder

1/4 tsp instant coffee

Put all ingredients in the blender and mix.  Pour into tall glass and ENJOY!

    1. I was wondering if anyone would ask. It is peanuts that have been roasted and pressed to remove the fat and oil. So you still get all of the flavor of peanut butter without the calories. Peanut butter powder has 45 calories and 1.5 fat grams for 2 tbsp. Regular peanut butter has 190 calories and 16 fat grams for 2 tbsp. Also pb powder ingredients are peanuts, sugar (only 1 gram) and salt. Regular pb has peanuts, sugar, molasses, hydrogenated oil (bad, bad, bad), mono- and diglycerides and salt. I have really fallen in love with it!

    1. Thank you! I’m not big on “light” or “fat free” things like salad dressings, mayo or milk. So if I can find something more flavorful that still cuts out the calories that is what I try to do. Almond milk is one of those things I like much better than say skim milk.

      1. Good for you … we need full fat in our lifes and bodies – butter is a lot more healthier the low fat margarine – low fat yogurt has more calories than full fat.
        I’m the same … I have a saying/quote – that low fat/light food taste like sticking out the tongue through the window. Absolutely nothing. Not a big lover of milk – only in my coffee and it has to be full fat, because otherwise the coffee looks grey. Never heard of Almond milk over here – have to look into that.

      2. Yes, check it out. I think you will like it. You can also make your own, although I have never done this. There are many sites that explain how to do it.

      3. I doubt I will find it in the supermarket .. over here. Make myself – maybe that. Thanks for the advice. Will look around on the net.

  1. Enjoy vacationing my friend – mine started at exactly the same time too 😀
    Make and drink a million delicious smoothies like this if you desire!


  2. I have seen pb powder at the store and was curious about it but I didn’t get it. What a great idea of what to do with it! Definitely going to pick some up. I live on smoothies in the summer. 🙂 p.s. Have a great vacation!

  3. Enjoy your trip Donna, hope to see some pretty photos when you’re back! That’s smoothie looks really delicious – a great way to start a day!
