You guys, I feel like I’m sharing a deep part of my soul with you today. Sorry to be dramatic, but seriously. I’ve had this healthy Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Smoothie almost every single morning for breakfast the past few years, and love it so much that I’ve been known to bring my Vitamix with me on vacation so I don’t have to miss out on my morning ritual.
It’s also a favorite for my kids, and I love being able to feed something to them that they love as much as a milkshake but that is actually super healthy.
You can adjust any of the ingredients to get a slightly different flavor, but it always turns out delicious! I like to use different types of almond milk, including coconut-almond milk. Mmm…
If you like your smoothies extra creamy, you can use frozen bananas and reduce the ice to 1 cup. You pretty much can’t go wrong with peanut butter, bananas, and chocolate, haha! I also often add in some frozen chopped spinach for some extra greens – you’d be surprised at how much you can add in before you can even taste it, and my kids actually request it this way!
Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Smoothie
1 1/4c almond milk
2tb natural peanut butter
1-1.5 servings chocolate protein powder (I use 2-3 scoops of Orgain Creamy Chocolate Fudge Plant Based powder – it’s my absolute favorite protein powder and you can get it for a great price at Costco)
2 large or 3 small-medium bananas – I prefer to use fairly ripe bananas for extra sweetness
3c ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!
