  • large frozen banana (broken into chunks)
  • 1 c milk of choice
  • 2 T cocoa powder
  • 2-3 teaspoon maple syrup or honey
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • pinch of sea salt


  • Combine all ingredients into a high powered blender. Blend well until smooth.
  • Enjoy! Feel free to add a touch more cayenne if you like to play on the wild side


  • Add the cayenne slowly--you don't want to overdo it!
  • I typically use either unsweetened vanilla almond milk or whole milk. Both are delicious and it typically depends on what I have around or what is closest in reach (truth....).
  • You can make it into a smoothie bowl by using less milk. Try about ⅔ c milk instead of the full cup! Top it with granola, fruit, coconut, chocolate chips and more!
