Chunky Monkey Smoothie



I slice my ripe bananas prior to freezing them so they’re easier to handle.


As usual, all my ingredients are from Trader Joe’s, including my 19 cent bananas.


Throw all your ingredients in the blender and blend away.




Aren’t these cups fancy? I adore glass cups that are made for coffee/hot drinks. You can never have enough glasses when you’re a food blogger. I got these at TJMaxx, where I spend nearly 3 hours on every trip. Ridiculous, I know… but when I shop, I make time to search and rummage through each pile for the best deals.

I thought I’d try something new and include a printable recipe with each post. I’m not sure how to include it for previous posts without going through each one separately, so for now it will just have to be for future posts. Does anyone know a way to make it so that I can add a print button to all of my recipes without being too strenuous?

This is a very simple smoothie with only five ingredients– all of which I’m sure you already have on hand. To make it really “Chunky Monkey,” I’d throw in a couple of walnuts next time to complete the flavor. In case you don’t know what Chunky Monkey is, it’s Ben & Jerry’s flavor of ice cream, as mentioned in my previous post here.

    I got thumbs up around my house from the husband and 3 girls :) Next I’m going to try one without peanut butter but add strawberries!

    I had to add way more cocoa and peanut butter to taste anything other than banana, but it was decent otherwise.

    Really yummy! I used 1 Tbsp cocoa powder & 1 tbsp chocolate milk powder. The peanut butter took over the flavors so next time I’ll use 1 tbsp. I also used vanilla greek yogurt.
