Cocoa Coconut Banana Smoothie

2 Servings

Preparation Time: 5 min

Cocoa, banana and coconut are a scrumptious combination and this smoothie captures them all in a thick, satisfying drink. It’s just the thing to enjoy after a workout, as a snack, or as a dessert.


1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut, divided 60 mL
1 1/2 cup plain yogurt 375 mL
1/4 cup milk 60 mL
1/2 tsp vanilla extract 2 mL
frozen very ripe banana, broken into chunks
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder 30 mL


Step 1
Set 1 tsp (5 mL) of the coconut aside for garnish. In a blender, combine remaining coconut, yogurt, milk, vanilla, banana and cocoa; purée until smooth. Pour into chilled glasses and serve immediately.


Very ripe bananas with brown spots on the skin give the most flavour to smoothies. Once ripe, peel the bananas and place in a resealable freezer bag, then freeze until solid and keep on hand to make this recipe.
