Skinny Chocolate Banana Smoothie

I have been searching for a quick and yummy skinny smoothie and I finally found it!  This smoothie is more like a chocolate shake than a smoothie.  And there are only 4 ingredients. It's the perfect healthy snack!  I've been eating one every day at lunchtime - it's very filling and addicting.  You will not be disappointed.

Plus, did you know all the great health benefits of eating bananas?

8 oz soy milk, milk or coconut milk (I use soy milk)
1 Tbsp unsweetened 100% cocoa powder *
2 bananas (frozen)
1 Tbsp honey **

* Did you know that one tablespoon of Hershey's Cocoa has only 0.5g of fat, 10 calories and NO sugar!  I  had no idea!  I used Ghiradelli Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (I think it tastes better).

** I don't think this shake needs much sweetening so I don't use the honey.  At first I'd just squeeze a teaspoon or two of honey in the blender, but now I don't use it at all and don't notice the difference.  It also reduces the calories :)

Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.

Hope you all have a fun Spring Break and please bring back more warm weather!
