THE EASIEST BANANA SMOOTHIE… WITH A TOUCH OF CHOCOLATE!
Everyone is busy. And it’s all too easy to run out the front door without taking a moment to power up for the day ahead. Whipping up a simple banana smoothie recipe takes minimal time and effort – yet will have you feeling juiced in the best way possible!
You see, bananas are full of fiber and potassium – as well as a decent boost of vitamins C and B6. But they’re super low in fat.
And it’s in that lighter spirit that we chose to use pure maple syrup as an added sweetener instead of sugar. However, the real star of this yummy smoothie recipe is unsweetened cocoa powder – used to push the flavor over the top and create something that feels like a bit of an indulgence 😋
You can add whipped cream for a bit of added sweetness and creaminess – or leave it out entirely… your choice. It tastes great either way.
And if you really are too busy to drink your chocolate smoothie in the morning, take it to work or school and indulge when you get a free moment. Don’t worry – it’ll still be cold!
HOW TO KEEP A SMOOTHIE COLD FOR HOURS
Your Tiger travel mug has a stainless steel interior that is vacuum insulated. That means it’ll keep your drinks cold (or hot!) for 6+ hours. So the smoothie you made in the morning will still be ice cold when you get a chance to drink it between meetings or after class.
And you can always switch up your morning routine! Here are a few of our favorite drink recipes for starting the day off on the right foot:
- Honey Mango Smoothie + Mixed Berry Smoothie
- Chai Latte
- Morning Booster Tonic
- Iced Vanilla Latte
- Avocado Smoothie + Mixed Berry Smoothie
But no matter how you choose to start your morning, it’s going to be a great day!
