WHAT’S IN A CHUNKY MONKEY SMOOTHIE?
HOW TO MAKE A CHUNKY MONKEY SMOOTHIE?
Add coconut milk, peanut butter, cacao powder, banana and chia seeds to a High-Speed Blender and blend on high until creamy and smooth, using the tamper as needed. Taste for flavor and adjust if needed. If the consistency is too thick, add a few splashes of milk or if it’s too thin, add more frozen banana. Pour into your favorite glass and serve.

Toppings aren’t necessary, but are fun and delicious! Here are some ideas:
- Swirled peanut butter
- Banana coins
- Chocolate shavings
- Cacao nibs
- Coconut flakes
TIPS FOR MAKING THIS SMOOTHIE:
- If you freeze your own bananas, make sure they are nicely ripened beforehand. Otherwise, they won’t provide much sweetness to the smoothie.
- You can use a small handful of ice to make the smoothie colder, but don’t add too much or it will water down the flavors.
- This smoothie is naturally sweetened with ripened bananas, but if you’d like a touch more sweetness, you can blend in a few Medjool Dates to take it up a notch.
- If you don’t have cacao powder, you can substitute it with unsweetened cocoa powder.
- Chia seeds can be swapped out for flax seeds.
- Add-ins are a great way to power up your smoothie, but if you add too much, you can end up with an undesired texture. I would pick one additional ingredient so you don’t ruin your delicious smoothie. Add more non-dairy milk as needed.
