Choco-Peanut Banana Shake

Choco-Peanut Banana Shake

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 cup milk (low-fat)
  • 2 teaspoons wheat germ
This was good, but I felt it needed more cocoa and peanut butter to deserve the name "Choco-Peanut". I ended up doubling those 2 components and it turned out great. This is a pretty healthy breakfast concoction (mostly bananas and milk), yet it does bring to mind the flavors of a shake you might have for dessert. The wheat germ was a nice touch. You won't notice the flavor at all, but you get a nice dose of protein and dietary fiber from that ingredient. If I make this again (and I probably will), I'd try replacing 1/2 the milk with vanilla yogurt. I think that bit of added dairy creaminess might help complete the illusion that this is dessert for breakfast. (This recipe was submitted in 2007. It was tested and photographed in February 2014.)

I like using frozen banana instead of ice cubes. Smart. Smoother that way. I also used chocolate syrup (2 Tablespoons) instead of cocoa powder and it was great.

Yummm! I just made this for my (gluten and dairy-free) son and me... I used some ground up flax seeds instead of the wheat germ. I used 2 cups of soy milk, the 2 frozen bananas, 2 Tablespoons peanut butter, and 2 teaspoons cocoa powder. The texture and taste was creamy and quite delicious! I will make this variation for the two of us again and again!!! We drank it right up. It really feels healthy, but tastes like a chocolate-banana-peanut butter milkshake... LOVED it!

I used a little less wheat germ on accident. It still turned out great!
