Chocolate Banana Smoothie (without sugar)

On vacation we went to a smoothie place called the Bashful Banana.  While we were there I had the most delicious chocolate banana smoothie.  You can say I became addicted! I wanted one every day…and then some. They used a chocolate sauce that was sweetened with pineapple and pear puree.  So when we got home I went ahead and tried it myself.  After a few tries it was very successful.  My kids love it as do I.  It satisfies that chocolate craving but it is healthy!! I hope you enjoy it too!


  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1/4 chocolate sauce (recipe below)
  • 1 cup milk (soy or almond milk is great too)
Chocolate Sauce Recipe:
  • 1 Pear - peeled and cored
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
  • 5 Tbsp unsweetened all natural cocoa powder

How to make the chocolate sauce:
Puree the pear (peeled), 1 cup pineapple and 5 tbsp cocoa powder. Puree until smooth and store in a container in the fridge until you are ready to use it.


In a blender puree the two bananas, ice, milk, and 1/4 cup of the chocolate sauce.  Puree until smooth.
