Chocolate and peanut butter are two of my favorite ingredients in life. I love them mixed together. Try this Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie! This tasty smoothie is a really nice treat when you are craving chocolate and peanut butter.
My goal for the year is to drink more smoothies! I’m on a mission to add more fresh fruits and vegetables in my diet, and one way to do this is by making smoothies. I like to experiment with different ingredients until I find a flavor that I love! Smoothies are easy to make and perfect for a busy mom like me that needs a quick meal or snack solution!
The best part about smoothies? You can get really creative with smoothie ingredients and experiment with several different types of fresh fruits, spices, flavors, and more! There’s really no wrong way to make a smoothie.
Over time, you’ll learn what ingredients work best and compliment each other and what ingredient combinations to avoid! For example, I was using milk in almost all of my smoothie recipes. Then I learned that milk doesn’t always go well with everything I add to my smoothies. Sometimes simple water will do the trick.
Today I wanted to create something fun and fresh, with bananas, cocoa, and peanut butter. I love this combination and wanted to try it as a smoothie. It’s super easy to make and super delicious!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
- 1 banana (check out this banana slicer for easier slicing!)
- 1/2 cup milk or almond milk
- 1/3 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1/2 tbsp dark cocoa
- 5 cubes of ice
- 1 tsp sweetener of choice (optional)
I’ve used my Magic Bullet Blender for years because it’s easy for an on-the-go mom like me! I love that I can blend the smoothie right into the cup and take it with me! This blender is great when you want to make a smoothie for one person.
I also have a Vitamix Blender that I use when I want to make more than one smoothie serving. My husband and kids love smoothies, too, so I can use the Vitamix when making smoothies for the whole family!
Pour the milk into the blender. *I always pour the liquid first, otherwise, the other ingredients can be hard to blend without enough liquid.
Add the yogurt, peanut butter, dark cocoa, and sweetener. Blend these ingredients together first.
Break up the banana and add it to the blender. Blend.
Add the ice to the blender.
Blend well and serve immediately!
This makes one serving. Double the recipe for two servings if you want to share this delicious smoothie with someone special!
