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?
Today we are headed to watch my son graduate 5th grade. I realize as I type this, that it isn’t a huge milestone or anything. But I am a mess!! He is my only kid, and he is growing up so fast! I have a purse full of kleenex, and I am sure I will use them all. I cry at commercials, so this is going to spell disaster. Hoping I can hide in the back of the gym, so no one will see me. After the ceremony we get to have a picnic lunch and cake before the kids head to field day for the afternoon. Wondering how long my kid will actually sit with us at lunch before he runs off with his friends.
If I had my way I would eat chocolate for breakfast every day. And every day after lunch, at snack time, and after dinner. I admit I have a chocolate problem. So instead of just not having chocolate in the morning, I have found a healthy way to do so! And it involves peanut butter, so it is one of my favorite flavor combinations ever!
I have been going back and forth between this chocolate peanut butter smoothie and these chocolate banana oatmeal blender muffins for the last couple weeks. Because let’s face it we can’t just have pancakes and French Toast every morning, we have to be healthier than that!
So to make this chocolate peanut butter smoothie I started with a chocolate protein powder (I used Skoop plant based powder). I used a peanut butter powder to cut down on the fat and calories, but you can use regular peanut butter if that is all you have. Stonyfield Greek yogurt and banana make the smoothie creamy, add protein, and add fiber. A smoothie that will definitely keep you full until lunch time. I like my smoothies super cold, so I added lots of ice as well, but that is optional. So get that chocolate fix for breakfast with a healthy chocolate peanut butter smoothie!
- 2 scoops chocolate protein powder
- 3 Tbls peanut butter powder (or creamy peanut butter)
- 1/2 cup Stonyfield vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 cup almond milk (or low fat dairy milk)
- 1 banana , frozen
- 1 cup ice (optional)
- Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass to serve.
