Surprise your friends and family with a delicious smoothie flavoured with chocolate and banana. It only takes a few minutes to blend together this irresistible drink, perfect for enjoying as a post-workout snack or a quick dessert. With three simple ingredients, this is an easy-to-make chocolate smoothie just like you remember it – sweet, rich, and creamy.


Step 1
  • Peel and cut the banana into pieces.
Step 2
  • Add milk and chocolate sauce or powder. Blend until everything is well mixed.
Step 3
  • Pour into glasses and garnish with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream if desired.

Instead of using fresh bananas, try using frozen ones instead. Cut the banana into slices before freezing them so they are easier to blend. This ensures a smoother texture for the drink.


Consider your preferred chocolate flavour when choosing between chocolate sauce and cocoa powder. Different brands offer varied flavours, from intensely dark and bitter to sweet and milky. So, find the right one that best suits your preferences.

Classic chocolate smoothie with milk

Treat yourself and your loved ones to a cold chocolate smoothie with milk. It is a timeless classic enjoyed by kids and adults alike in kitchens across the world. The recipe requires minimal preparation, and the smoothie's velvety texture and rich chocolate flavour are certain to impress with every sip. The addition of milk brings a subtle sweetness that complements the chocolate sauce and adds to the drink's smooth consistency.

Sweetened with banana

If you have ever had a chocolate smoothie, you know the level of sweetness has to be exactly right. Adding banana to the blend does just that. The delicious chocolate banana smoothie draws on the strong natural fruity sweetness. Couple that with chocolate sauce and you have a heavenly match. Chocolate and banana pair really well due to the interplay between fruity notes and rich chocolate, creating a creamy, enjoyable drink.

Use chocolate sauce or cocoa powder

When it comes to chocolatey goodness, you can choose between either chocolate sauce or cocoa powder. Both are wonderful additions to your chocolate smoothie recipe. If you prefer a rich sweetness, go with chocolate sauce. The sauce’s smooth and viscous texture adds to the creaminess, blending effortlessly with the milk and banana to create a velvety and inviting drink. For bold flavours with bitter notes, opt for cocoa powder. Cocoa powder offers a robust and pure chocolate essence derived from roasted cocoa beans. Its flavour tends to boast deep, bitter chocolate notes that complement the sweet banana and milk very well.

Add strawberry or make a chocolate smoothie with avocado

Take your chocolate smoothie to the next level by adding strawberry or avocado. Drop a handful of fresh strawberries into the mix to give your smoothie a berry boost. They will infuse the drink with a refreshing twist, creating a pleasant balance between bright and rich sweetness with just a hint of tangy undertones.

Avocado is a great choice if you want to make your chocolate smoothie creamier and richer. Its subtle, buttery notes help to enhance the depth of the chocolate smoothie's flavour profile.
