Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie is rich, creamy, and a healthy way to start the day!  Who doesn’t want to start their day with chocolate and not feel guilty about it?

If I had my way I would have chocolate for breakfast every day of the week. And for a snack, and for dessert probably twice a day. I am a total choco-holic!

Obviously chocolate all day every day isn’t a good idea, but when you can have a healthy chocolate smoothie for breakfast, then I am all for it!

I really like a good smoothie for breakfast, but it has to be filling. Most of the time smoothies are full of fruit that is good for you, but those calories add up fast. For this healthy chocolate peanut butter smoothie we have Greek yogurt, protein powder, and peanut butter.

So not only is this filling, but it is good for you and tastes like a peanut butter cup. Talk about a winning combination!

What You’ll Need

  • Chocolate Protein Powder
  • Peanut Butter Powder – or creamy peanut butter
  • Greek Vanilla Yogurt
  • Milk – any type works great
  • Frozen Banana
  • Ice – optional if you like it cold and creamy.

Smoothie Mix-Ins

You can use a smoothie as a blank canvas to really amp up the health benefits and make it even more filling! Here are a few ideas you can mix and match to up the benefits of your smoothie

  • Frozen Rice Cauliflower – Use in place of the ice, and you will NEVER know it is there. It makes it super cold and creamy with no added taste.
  • Ground Flax Seed – I like to add about a tablespoon to my smoothie. It helps with cholesterol and reduces risk of heart disease.
  • Chia Seeds – they are packed with fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids
  • Hemp Seeds – rich in protein, fiber, and healthful fatty acids, including omega-3s and omega-6s

If you like chocolate and peanut butter together you will have to check out these Chocolate Oatmeal Banana Blender Muffins. They are naturally gluten free and don’t have any added refined sugar. So they are a healthy muffin that I always have in my freezer.

I told you I will find a way to eat chocolate for breakfast! 

How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

This chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie could not be easier to make.

  1. Step 1 add all ingredients to blender
  2. Step 2 process until smooth
  3. Step 3 pour into a glass and drink.

I kind of feel like step 3 is optional, you really could just add your straw straight to the blender! But you get the point – ready in 5 minutes and so easy!

Smoothie Tips

  • Protein Powder – there are all kinds of protein powders out there, use one that you like. I have tried a bunch of them, and some taste great others not so much. So this is really personal preference.
  • Yogurt – for smoothies I like to use Greek yogurt. If you don’t have it that is fine, but the Greek yogurt bumps up the protein and makes your smoothie even more creamy.
  • Peanut Butter – If I have peanut butter powder I love to add it to smoothies. It saves on calories but gives you all the flavor. Creamy peanut butter works great though, and I use it often!
  • Banana – frozen bananas really help a smoothie stay thick and creamy. Whenever I have bananas that are getting pretty ripe, I break then in half and put them in a bag in the freezer. So whenever I want to make smoothies, I can just take out what I need.
  • Ice is optional. If you have frozen bananas it is not necessary. If you want it super thick then add a few cubes of ice.

  1. I serioiusly think I’m in love with this smoothie. Fantastic flavors throughout.

  2. You seriously can’t go wrong with peanut butter + chocolate. Especially if you can have it for breakfast!

  3. I have to watch my protein intake, so I wondered if I could substitute cocoa powder for the chocolate protein powder?

    1. Cocoa powder is unsweetened, so it may be a little bitter. But you could add honey to sweeten it and just taste to see how much you need.

  4. My daughter is allergic to bananas. Can I delete this and the consistency stay the same. Maybe add some other kind of fruit?

    1. You can definitely skip it and it won’t change too much. It does add a little sweetness and helps make it creamy. You could add 1/4-1/2 of an avocado for the creaminess (you can’t taste it) or a touch of honey for sweetness (I would make without and taste to see if it is necessary).
