  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 small ripe avocado flesh or 1/2 medium
  • 3-4 tablespoons good-quality peanut butter I used Pics
  • 2-3 tablespoons raw cacao powder or you could use good quality dark cocoa
  • milk e.g. soy, almond, cow’s just enough to cover ingredients in the blender
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup optional, if you like it sweeter


  • Blend all ingredients together until smooth.


It’s got all the flavour that a snickers bar has, but is obviously muuuuch better for you! Adding avocado makes it very thick, creamy and filling, but it’s fine to leave it out if you prefer. For a dairy-free version use soy milk for a nice nutty flavour. Kids LOVE this smoothie – it’s a perfect after school treat that will fill them up till dinner time, and satisfy any sweet cravings while providing great healthy fats and protein.
