Did you all know that today, March 1st is national Peanut Butter Lovers Day? So to celebrate this holiday I thought I would share with you all my favorite Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothie recipe.
Many years ago I used to work at the front desk of a gym. I loved working at a place filled with happy, motivated people trying to better themselves. While working there we made smoothies for people to buy and one of the top sellers was this Peanut Butter Chocolate smoothie. It sounded a little weird to me but one day I gave it a try. WOWZA..I was hooked. The Peanut Butter Chocolate smoothies became my all time favorite. Packed with protein, they’re smooth, creamy, rich, and delicious. I dare ya to try one!
Just so you know I make two different peanut butter chocolate smoothies at home. When I am trying to build muscle and workout I like extra protein so I buy Chocolate Protein whey powder from Costco. But if I am not working out and want less calories to lose weight, I just use cocoa powder instead. Both taste great. Usually I don’t add in a banana (my personal preference), but it is delicious in it as well if you like the fruit.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothie
- 1/4 cup Greek Goddess Honey Yogurt or vanilla greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup fat free half n half or 1% milk
- 2 Tbsp Creamy Peanut butter
- 2 tsp Cocoa Powder or 1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder my low calorie blend, after workout
- 1 Ripe banana optional
- Add all ingredients to your blender and blend away.
Have you tried this one? What do you think?
Food is my love language. But so is saving money. So I like to combine the two a lot and make thrifty make ahead and freeze meals to save time. Because life is busy, and freezer meals can come to the rescue for all of us. And yes, they actually CAN taste good. Read more...
