Black Forest & Banana Smoothie

Black Forest & Banana Smoothie

My first recipe of the year is for a Black Forest & Banana Smoothie. I finally unpacked my birthday present from last month which was one of those bullet style smoothie makers which I found in a Black Friday sale. So after a forage into the freezer and finding a bag of frozen cherries I decided to do a Black Forest Smoothie with some chocolate nut spread but not wanting to add any additional sugar I decided to add half a banana which worked really well. My daughter loves making herself a chocolate milk after school so I made this for her as a healthier alternative.

As soon as she got home I poured her a glass of my Black Forest & Banana Smoothie and it immediately got her seal of approval and in no time there was an empty glass! This was much to my relief as my first attempt (which had me grinding some cacao nibs) was a complete disaster. Not wanting to waste good ingredients I got hubby to help me drink up the first attempt which was just a bit bitter and grainy, hence the chocolate nut spread idea!

Now I have a proper smoothie maker I will be making a lot more as up until now I have been using a variety of mixers and blenders which weren’t best suited. I do hope you try my smoothie or make it for your kids as a healthier treat!

    I love anything Blackforest so I am sold. Thanks for linking to my smoothie xx

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, a pleasure Becky:-)

  14. Corina

    Lovely idea! Using Nutella is certainly easier than grinding cacao nibs too! I need to try more smoothies out on my children to get them to eat enough fruit – they’re becoming a bit picky at the moment!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Corina, I actually used Macabella in this one but Nutella equally good:-)

  15. Claire Jessiman

    I’m going to try making this for my daughter. She eats WAY too much chocolate spread and this could be a healthy alternative. Need to keep my eyes peeled for frozen cherries.

    1. Camilla

      Great Claire, my daughter loves her chocolate spread too so good to get some fruit into the mix:-)

  16. Nadia

    This sounds lovely! Cherries and chocolate are such a delicious combo 🙂 looks yummy and so healthy!

  17. Janice

    Ooh this looks lush, I love chocolate and cherries, great idea for a smoothie.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Janice:-)

  18. Richard Eldred Hawes

    I know it may not be very healthy but I would add a little double cream to this, lovely

    1. Camilla

      I’d go with ice cream for a thick shake and take out the milk, did similar with some mango and pineapple tonight:-)

  19. Choclette

    Ooh, love the sound of this Camilla. I’ve been making smoothies regularly for nearly a couple of years now, but I’ve never tried this combination.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Choclette, I’m looking forward to making many more:-)

  20. Kavey

    All the flavours I love Camilla, no wonder your daughter drank the lot!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Kavey, I just made a pineapple and mango smoothie which she turned her nose up at so she knows what she likes:-)

  21. Amy Fidler

    1. Camilla

  22. William Gould

    We use a banana and apple juice with various berries and currants for a fab smoothie!

    1. Camilla
