Chocolate, nut butter, banana smoothie (Dr Josh Axe)

Submitted by: RUNZFAST

Introduction

This is a smoothie recipe from Dr. Josh Axe. The volume is large enough that I have divided it into 2 portions/servings, though if you can "handle a 350+ calorie breakfast, GO FOR IT!

  • I need to try this! I think I'd substitute protein powder for cocoa powder, however - get an extra little boost of protein. :) - 9/6/12

  • I would vary this as well. could make it into a green smoothie in the morning by adding spinach or kale. Decrease to 1/2 banana and add some strawberries as well. Sounds great this way too. - 7/19/11

  • I've made this recipe using natural peanut butter. STEVIA is not an artificial sweetener JUST4MENOW, it is natural & you can grow this at home. It contains 0 cal. & comes in liquid or powder. Find it in grocery stores or health food stores. Thanks for sharing this recipe:) - 5/31/11

    Thanks for the comment! After purchasing a "magic bullet" my family makes smoothies almost every day! STEVIA (Truvia) is our sweeter of choice, though for coffee I've begun to use local honey to help out w/ allergies. Have a great day!

  • I'd really like to try this but would honey be a good substitute for the stevia? I don't use artificial sweeteners or sugar. Any suggestions? - 5/31/11

    You certainly can use honey...but it will increase your calories considerably. One tbsp of honey is about 17 carbs, and 64 extra calories. Stevia (truvia) is an all natural sweetener made from the stevia leaf and erythratol, a sugar alcohol made from fermenting sugar with yeast.
