Chocolate banana smoothie

This nutritious chocolate banana smoothie recipe has 2 of your 5 a day and is packed with protein. Oh and it tastes like a chocolate milkshake! My daughter always steals some of this from me so kids love it but if you are making it specifically for them reduce or omit the protein powder as its not usually recommended for kids.

You can make extra of this and keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days. You will just need to give it a good shake before drinking it. I make a bit extra so I'm covered for grab and go smoothies on those extra busy mornings. You can leave out the protein powder or the avocado if you don't have it or you could sub those with yoghurt or oats.
