Chocolate + Peanut Butter + Banana

This smoothie is packed full of rich, creamy chocolate peanut butter banana flavor. The best part though? It’s healthy! Well healthier than other versions at least. The banana and peanut butter are great sources of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. And the yogurt and milk are both good sources of protein.

I used a big scoop of ice, some vanilla yogurt, milk, cocoa powder, frozen banana, and rehydrated powdered peanut butter. Who doesn’t love a chocolate and peanut butter combo?!

My toddler kept calling it a chocolate milkshake. He’s kind of right, it tasted exactly like one, but a whole lot healthier! I hope you’ll give this smoothie a try- it’s rich, creamy and absolutely delicious.

Just Blend and Enjoy!

Place all ingredients in the bowl of blender, placing the heaviest ones on top:

  • Powdered peanut butter (I chose this because of the fat content – or lack thereof  3 tbsp. of rehydrated powder has only a little over 2.5 grams of fat vs. 24 grams of fat in traditional peanut butter)
  • Cocoa powder (helps keep things extra smooth)
  • Sliced and frozen ripe banana (contributes to the creamy texture)
  • Vanilla flavored yogurt and skim milk. (You can definitely sub those out for dairy-free options and it’d taste just as yummy!)

TOSS everything into my mixer and blended until it was thick and creamy. Blend until smooth, about 2 minutes.

Ingredient & Storage Tips

Ingredients:

  • If you want to incorporate chocolate protein powder you can swap that out for the normal cocoa powder, it just might be a little bit more chalky tasting. 
  • Powdered peanut butter seems most easily found on Amazon, as opposed to brick and mortar stores.
  • If you want to make the smoothie sweeter you can add in a tbsp or so of honey/agave/maple syrup.

STORE leftover smoothie in the freezer in a covered cup. Make sure to remove the straw/spoon before putting it away. Let it thaw a little bit before trying to drink it.
