Learn how to make a Starbucks Chocolate smoothie by following these steps:


  • ½ cup mocha syrup
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup vanilla-flavored soy milk
  • 1 scoop of chocolate-flavored protein powder
  • ¾ cup ice cubes

For the Mocha Syrup

  • ½ cup decaf coffee (strong brew)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • ½ cup cacao/cocoa powder


  • First, prepare the mocha syrup by whisking the decaf coffee, sugar, salt, & cocoa powder in a bowl. Transfer the mix into a saucepan and stir continuously over medium-high flame for 8-10 minutes till it thickens. Then, remove into a cup and let cool.
  • Now, pour the cooled mocha syrup into a blender.
  • Next, add the banana (peeled and broken into pieces), soy milk, protein powder, & ice cubes. Blend well.
  • Lastly, pour into a serving glass and enjoy!


  • To make the smoothie caffeine-free & sugar-free, you can substitute the mocha syrup with 4-5 tablespoons of Greek yogurt, 1-2 teaspoons of cocoa powder, & 2 teaspoons of honey.
  • Besides vanilla-flavored soy milk, you can also use regular milk or almond milk. For the vanilla flavor, add 1 tsp vanilla extract to the mocha syrup.
  • For a thicker and creamier consistency, use a frozen banana instead of the fresh one.
