  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup sliced very ripe banana
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • Add the ingredients to a blender.
  • Blend, starting on low and working up to high.
  • Serve immediately.


  • Store in an airtight container for up to 24 hours.
  • Dairy-Free: Use your favorite nondairy milk. Omit the sweetener and vanilla if using another other than plain unsweetened.
  • Added-Sugar-Free: Make this without added sugars by just using the milk and banana. (It will taste best with a very ripe banana!)
  • Do half milk and half yogurt to make drinkable banana yogurt.
  • Add ice to make it more of a smoothie consistency.
  • See the rest of the post for additional ways to use bananas.
