Ingredients For Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Vanilla sesame milk

We use sesame milk vanilla flavored for this recipe. It is raw, dairy-free, vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, paleo-friendly milk that is really healthy. It has as much calcium as cow’s milk. This milk has healthy fats and phytosterols. It is also rich in protein, Vitamin E, zinc, magnesium, copper, and iron. Sesame milk is anti-inflammatory, reduces pain and swelling, regulates blood pressure and cholesterol, builds healthy blood, promotes collagen and elastin. It has a smooth texture and makes the smoothie runny and pleasant. The flavor is rich so we add up some water to the smoothie. You can also add ice instead of water. Or nothing other than the milk.

Banana

we use banana for our smoothie to add sweetness. The vanilla sesame milk is flavored but it is not really sweet. Bananas are a great smoothie ingredient that blends really well. They are rich in potassium, Vitamin B and C, fiber, protein, and magnesium.

Cocoa Powder

We use cocoa powder in this smoothie to give it a chocolate flavor. It is really healthy and one of the main reasons we read to eat dark chocolate. Cocoa powder is a good source of minerals, including iron, magnesium, zinc, and manganese. It also has fiber. Check our Amazon link for the best type of cocoa powder to rip its most benefits. It needs to be non-alkalized.

Peanut Butter

Peanut butter has nutrient-dense properties. Some people have allergies and some are afraid of the high-calorie count. But if you don’t have allergies try adding this nutrient food to your diet in small quantities. It is rich in protein, Vitamin B, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. It is a heart-healthy ingredient to include in a diverse diet. My kids sometimes spoon eat it, so be careful not to overeat it.

We like our peanut butter to be made out of peanuts only. In the stores, there are machines now where you can put nuts and the machines make them into butter. It is a great way to get peanut butter. We tried peanut butter and almond butter that way and it is just delicious and fresh. Check out our Amazon link to a peanut butter example. All it has in the ingredient list is “organic peanuts” and that is what you want to eat. There is no sugar, salt, or oil added.

Plain Water For Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

We love plain water. Check our post about water to learn more about why it is so healthy to drink water. We use plain water to make this chocolate banana peanut butter smoothie more fluid and runny. Without the extra liquid, it is richer. If you prefer thicker and richer smoothies you can either omit the water or reduce the quantity. You can also use ice for the smoothie. It brings colder and thicker taste as well. It all comes down to your taste. I like the smoothie with extra water so I get more liquids during the day. However, my kids like the smoothie without water enjoying the thicker smooth chocolate texture.

Get Ingredients Online

We use Chicory as a third-party service to get easily online ingredients for our recipes. Just click the Chicory button in the button section of our recipes and you will be taken to a grocery store choice based on your zip code. From there, you just select the pre-populated ingredients based on the recipe that you want to buy and voila. All is set! Below are the ingredients we found on Amazon. That will give you a quick overview of what is needed. Amazon didn’t have vanilla sesame milk on the list, so we included a variety pack for your reference.

How We Came About Making Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

My kids love chocolate milk. Sometimes I will make them cocoa to satisfy their chocolate milk thirst. Then, I thought to make them a combination of milk, chocolate, and peanut butter smoothie that is healthy. We like balancing our diets so I had raw vegan vanilla sesame milk in the fridge. It is nutritious milk that sometimes we substitute for cow’s milk. So, here we are all in the kitchen making a smoothie from milk, cocoa, and peanut butter. Yum! For sugar, we added a banana into the mix. Warning – if you do not like the taste of sesame milk which is very different from cow’s milk, you may not like this smoothie. I use smoothies as a way to include sesame milk in our diets.

Juicing and Blending

We also wrote some blogs on blending and juicing. We believe both juicing and blending is a healthy addition to our diets. Check our blogs to learn more about how smoothies and juicing can boost your overall health.

Equipment

Blender is one of our main kitchen appliances. It gives us a nutritious snack in minutes. My kids get hungry often, so having a blender sometimes is a lifesaver. In some cases, it is easier to make a smoothie rather than cut-up fresh fruit for them. I just throw several healthy ingredients into the blender and here it is – a delicious and healthy snack for the kiddos. If you don’t own a blender, then you can use a food processor.

Notes

  • We use fresh fruit for this smoothie. You can also use frozen.
  • We use plain water for this recipe. Feel free to use any other liquid to make the smoothie more fluid. For example, coconut water, almond milk, cow’s milk. You can also not use any additional liquid and just leave it with the sesame milk. This will give you richer flavor and texture.
  • We use a blender for this recipe. You can also try using a food processor, hand mixer, or anything that will blend all the ingredients together really well.
  • The serving of this recipe is 1 smoothie of 20 oz. You can reduce the water for a thicker smoothie that will yield less total oz. The nutrient values will remain the same.
  • You can also use ice for the smoothie to thicken the texture
  • Shake the sesame milk well prior using it
  • We are extremely excited to announce we are now using the saferecipeguide.org guidelines to make our recipe safe-friendly. We will slowly be incorporating the safe recipe guidelines into our recipe instructions!
