ChocoBanana Protein Smoothie

It's Hemp History Week (June 4-10) so why not enjoy a smoothie with hemp protein!  Hemp contains easily digestible protein, fiber, and Omega-3.  I love the hemp seeds on salad or oatmeal but decided to give the protein powder a shot (I bought the Nutiva brand).  It's definitely got an earthy flavor but in this smoothie that is masked by the banana, cocoa, and peanut butter.  Try slicing the banana and freezing for an hour to make the smoothie thicker.  It's not only delicious but quite filling.  I'll definitely be trying this is different smoothies.


3/4 cup almond milk
1 banana, sliced
1 Tbsp hemp protein
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp peanut butter
crushed ice (optional)


Add all the ingredients to a blender and and blend until smooth.  Add ice for a more frozen consistency.
