1 cup 2% milk
1 frozen banana (medium size, 7-8 inches)

2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup peanut butter


Put all ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth.

Some tips

We keep a Ziploc bag of frozen bananas (already peeled) in the freezer at all times. When my bananas are getting a little too ripe, I add them to the bag in the freezer.
