#TastyTuesday: Banana-Chocolate Coconut Rum Smoothie

#CleanCocktail: Banana-Coconut Rum Smoothie

O.M.G. Not to toot my own horn, but I outdid my myself with this #cleancocktail.

The inspiration behind the drink was the simple fact that I was craving chocolate and bananas were looking extra good at the market down the street.

Like all my cocktails, I try to limit the amount of sugar because it's a sure way to get a bad hangover and it's just not good for us.

If you're looking for a healthy drinky drink for the summer that satiates your chocolate craving, check out this easy and super delish treat. *


Makes one 8 oz. drink

  • Half a banana. Sliced and frozen.

  • 3 spoonfuls (approximately 2 T.) of cocoa powder. I used this fair trade, organic baking cocoa powder. You can also get it at your local Whole Foods. You can be as generous, or scarce, with the chocolate depending on how bad you need some chocolate ;)

  • 1 shot of Malibu Coconut Rum

  • 2 T. of water or coconut water. I used plain coconut.

Blend until smooth. Enjoy.
