Banana Nutella Smoothie

Banana Nutella Smoothie

  • 1 ripe banana, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon Nutella
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup skim milk
  • 1 scoop protein powder 
  • 4 ice cubes


We like the Muscle Milk protein powder – it packs 16 grams of protein per scoop, and the flavors taste great.  For this recipe, I used the “Graham Cracker” flavor.  If you don’t have Nutella, you can substitute any nut butter such as all-natural peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, etc.  Add a little honey since nut butters are unsweetened and Nutella is sweetened.

Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.

Yields 1 serving.
