Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
Yields: 2 servings
This smoothie is a chocolate and peanut butter lover's dream. Not only is it tasty, but it's also healthy and will keep you full for hours.
  • 1 banana, cut into chunks
  • ¾ cup yogurt (vanilla, plain, low-fat, Greek)
  • ¾ cup milk (whole, low-fat, almond, soy)
  • 2 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter (creamy, crunchy, natural)
  • 1-2 teaspoons maple syrup or honey
  • ½ cup ice cubes
  1. Place all ingredients together in a blender and blend until smooth. Taste and make any needed adjustments (read notes) until desired taste and consistency.
  2. Notes:
  3. -You can use frozen banana chunks and less ice cubes.
  4. -You can add fresh spinach (yes, really) for more nutrition. Start with adding ½ cup, then up to 2 cups, to taste.
  5. -You can easily play with the amount of ingredients. Use more cocoa or peanut butter for a stronger flavor, use more milk for a thinner smoothie, or replace yogurt with milk and vice versa according to your tastes.
