Chocolate Hazelnut Banana Smoothie in a clear cup with chocolate drizzle and chocolate chips on a wooden tabletop

I was fiddling around in the kitchen trying to find a way to make the smoothest smoothie. Some of them came out pretty rough around the edges but I think I’ve finally cracked it. My Chocolate Hazelnut Banana Smoothie is smoother than silk, finer than wine, and packed with JUSTIN’S® Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Butter. If it was any smoother, you could skip it across a pond.

 

Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Dessert Hummus on a clear glass with strawberries in the background

I was recently informed that eating JUSTIN’S® Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Butter straight out of the jar with a spoon is “not ideal for sharing.” Bold of them to assume I wanted to share. If I did want to share, I would whip up this Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Dessert Hummus. It’s easy to make, delicious, and perfect for a crowd.
