Wonderful flavor!! Chocolate and banana....YUM! Great smoothie to relax with. I love bananas in my smoothies and this one was just right! Prepared as a participant in the July 2009 Comfort Cafe Event.
Simple yet flavorful. You dont need to add warm water or premix sugar +cocoa if you have a high speed blender and let it puree for a full minute. I omitted the sugar (added protein powder) and it still tasted awesome.
