In the world of plant-based milks, banana milk might not be on your radar. However, we would argue its time to stock up on the milk alternative: In fact, it makes a pretty good base for most beverages, given its light and subtly sweet flavor. And when you combine it with a rich organic cocoa powder (found in our chocolate beauty & gut collagen+), it tastes like a fudge-covered banana.

Allow us to share our go-to banana chocolate milk recipe that's absolutely delicious, packed with nutrients, and will make your mouth water.

How to: 

All you have to do is mix the banana milk with the mbg chocolate beauty & gut collagen+ to make a creamy, delicious beverage. You can choose to use a blender or an electric whisk (like this one from Amazon). 

Once mixed, you can add a few ice cubes for a new take on traditional chocolate milk or heat up your blend for elevated hot cocoa. If you have a sweet tooth, you may want to add a natural sweetener to the mix, as the collagen powder and banana milk are both free of added sugars (a major bonus for those looking to limit their sugar intake).
