The chocolate and banana together was quite tasty, and I enjoyed the Smoothie a lot. I think it might have been a little more to my liking if I had used sweetened cocoa though The amount of peanut butter is just right for me, because it left a hint of it without overpowering the multitude of other lovely flavors that mesh so well as this recipe is written. I liked the suggestions of perhaps adding a little coffee, too. Maybe I'll try that next time. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Azriel31. Made for Spring 2012 Pick-A-Chef.

I made this for me and the kiddies for an afternoon pick-me-up. I seem to have the same problem with coffee as you;(. This did help with the energy level, however, I still miss the coffee, LOL. It was very rich, thick, creamy and pretty tasty. I did increase the PB by atleast a tablespoon, used 1% milk and added a couple packets of splenda. I will probably make it again but omit the cocoa powder and increase the PB even more. We love PB, alot, in my house ;). I think that the cocoa powder made it a little bitter and the kids wouldn't miss it. A little honey instead of the splenda might be good also. Thanks for the recipe, it'll be great when the kids are craving milkshakes, but I don't want to give in to ice cream.

Pretty good! Very rich & creamy & filling! I found the peanut butter and cocoa made it a tad bitter - I think that could be corrected with a bit of Sugar Twin or other sugar substitute.

Fantastic! I used a cup of skim milk and it was still great.

I tried this recipe as written, and I didn't like it very much at all... the peanut butter taste was too strong for me, and the cocoa gave it an acrid flavor. I decided to try it again with a few tweaks... I added a few ice cubes and 1/4 c water to "dilute" the flavor some, used just a teaspoon of peanut butter and a scant teaspoon of cocoa powder, and added a couple of packets of Splenda to counter the bitter taste. It worked out, so this recipe was a great jumping board for me! Thanks for posting.

I used this for a perk-me-up afternoon snack for my son before soccer practice! He loves it! He especially loves the little bits of banana through-out. Thanks for a great idea! (Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag Game 2008.)
