This paleo chocolate coconut smoothie is creamy, chocolaty, and slightly sweet with no dairy or added sugar.
It was recently brought to my attention that I didn't have a chocolate smoothie on the blog. How did this happen? So I had to create this chocolate coconut smoothie. I wanted something that was chocolaty and decadent like a chocolate milkshake — but without milk, ice cream, or sugar. I also wanted to add some extra protein so I could use it for a quick breakfast.
The result is a fast and easy chocolate smoothie with just 5 ingredients and as much protein as a couple eggs. The dark chocolate flavor comes from raw cacao, and frozen bananas add a touch of sweetness. The combination of full fat coconut milk and ice makes it smooth and creamy.

I've been adding this gelatin protein to my smoothies lately. The addition of gelatin protein (hydrolyzed collagen) adds 11 grams of protein per serving. So with 2 grams of protein from the coconut milk, this smoothie packs slightly more than the 12 grams of protein in two large eggs.
My taste testers gave this chocolate protein shake two thumbs up. It's a perfect when you need something quick before you run out the door.
