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!
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.
- Step 1 add all ingredients to blender
- Step 2 process until smooth
- 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!
- 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.
