I tried to make this smoothie as written, but my high end blender is broken and the regular one just would not break down the ice. Since my banana was not frozen to compensate for the lack of ice I added some vanilla yogurt-omitting the extract-to thicken it up. My biggest problem is the bitterness of the cocoa- I used the type specified- regular, unsweetened- and found the whole smoothie overwhelmed with a bitter chocolate flavor (even though I only used a scant tablespoon). The extra sugar in the vanilla yogurt could not compensate, nor the extra bit of banana I added. On a positive note:this IS filling...I don't think I'll be hungry for hours. (Sorry to be one of those pesky reviews that hasn't completely followed the recipe, I just can't imagine the flavor itself being much improved by perfectly crushed ice.)

I added more banana, almond milk and used less ice. Plus I added a pinch of chai seeds and whey protein. Each time it comes out a little more to my taste. I was looking for a good and simple shake. This one works. Thanks

Very little flavor, too much ice! My kids asked if they have to drink it. Disappointing!

I was not pleased with this shake. it lacked flavor. I added more vanilla, milk chocolate powder and it tasted worse. I eventually added a table spoon of sugar so that i could drink it. I will try frozen bananas next time.

I liked this banana chocolate concoction. Very easy to make. Next time I am going to try making it with frozen bananas.

Instead of using ice cubes, I used frozen banana chunks. I added two packets Truvia. I drank this when I got up at six and it kept me full until about one. Not bad.
