What goes together better than peanut butter and chocolate?  This smoothie is so delicious and sweet you’ll think you’re drinking a milkshake, but it’s infinitely healthier than ice cream would be.  It is also an excellent introduction to smoothies; if you haven’t sold yourself on switching to smoothies for breakfast, giving yourself something this decadent can be a great incentive.

You’ll need:

  • 1 banana frozen and chunked
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbps cocoa powder
  • Almond milk to fill

The banana gives it creaminess and some sweetness.  The peanut butter is a core to a PB/Chocolate flavor profile, but you can swap it for a cashew butter, almond butter, or another nut butter if you prefer.  Cocoa powder is a rich chocolate addition, without the unhealthy parts of real chocolate (the sugar and cocoa butter parts, that is).  The vanilla extract adds a richness you won’t get otherwise, but be careful not to overdo it.

This is another smoothie recipe where you can easily add a handful of greens, and they’ll be completely masked by the flavor of the nut butter and chocolate.  Give it a try!!
