For a regular smoothie just blend all ingredients together until smooth, sprinkle with a little more ground flax or chia and serve right away.
For a layered smoothie, first blend together frozen banana, ice cubes, milk, peanut butter and maple syrup (optional). Fill half of the mixture into a glass and set aside.
Add chocolate protein powder, cocoa and ground flax or chia to the remaining smoothie mix in the blender. Pulse a few times to combine, then carefully layer the 2 smoothie mixes into a serving glass. You can do 2 or more layers.
