I love starting my morning with a smoothie. I am always one to have a sweet tooth, so smoothies are a great way to satisfy my sweet tooth with something a little healthier. They’re a great way to start the day because they are filling, delicious, and often better for you than the high sugared cereals, or pancakes smothered in syrup that we might be eating instead

Smoothies often aren’t super low calorie, but they are made up with fruit and yogurt, which are a lot better for you than a lot of other options.

Smoothies are also a great option for a snack, or a late night treat that I don’t feel as bad about eating – because let’s be honest a lot of times I’m eating cookies or chips instead. And this smoothie is much better than that!

I may have found a new favorite smoothie and I couldn’t wait to share it with you! This chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie is a real winner!

I altered my peanut butter banana smoothie recipe by adding in some cocoa powder and this amazing chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie was born.

This creamy smoothie comes together in just a few minutes with only a few ingredients and its so good that you’ll want it every day for breakfast or dessert! It’s honestly not too bad for you, with about 8.5-12.5g of protein per serving (depending if you split it into 2 or 3 servings) because its loaded with bananas, peanut butter, and greek yogurt.

To make this smoothie you’ll need a blender, I have a blendtec, but any blender should work! Into your blender you’ll add creamy peanut butter, bananas, milk, yogurt, cocoa powder and ice.

I suggest using frozen bananas if you have them. I like to take any of my bananas that are starting to get too ripe to just eat, this means they’re a little spotty and overripe, but not soft yet. Peel the bananas and cut them in half and toss them into freezer. Now they’re ready to use whenever you need frozen bananas for smoothies. Frozen bananas help to add thickness to your smoothie, without losing the flavor. Too much ice and your smoothie will be watered down.

You can use any plain or vanilla yogurt that you like. Plain yogurt will not have any sugar so you may want to add some sugar, or some honey to your smoothie if it’s not sweet enough for you this way. I like using vanilla greek yogurt because it’s usually lower in added sugar than other yogurts, but has a lot of protein. Plus I think it’s so delicious 😉

This chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie is so delicious! It’s one of my favorite smoothies to drink, and it would also be delicious as a smoothie bowl! If you want to make this smoothie into a bowl, some yummy topping ideas for your smoothie bowl are:

  • Sliced Bananas
  • Granola
  • Chia Seeds
  • Sliced Strawberries
  • Drizzled Peanut Butter
  • Shredded or Shaved Coconut
  • Chocolate Shavings or Nibs

This smoothie is a great way to start the new year off right, especially if you’re like me and pretty much addicted to candy and cookies after all the Christmas goodies, this is the perfect healthier alternative that will still completely satisfy your sweet tooth.
