RECIPE: PEANUT BUTTER + CHOCOLATE SMOOTHIE

 peanut butter chocolate vegan smoothie recipe

This healthy, nutrient-packed vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate + Banana smoothie is more like a treat than a nutritious breakfast or snack.  I love this smoothie and make it almost daily.  But, as a vegan, I get it if you think I may have just acquired a taste for a "green" smoothie such as this one over the years.  So don't take my word for it - the fact that our 3 year-old reaches for this and devours it every time I make it should stand for something.  ;)  He loves it!  And so will you!  I leave the Matcha powder out of his and just add it to mine.

But he does love it with a scoop of the Green SuperFood, which is super healthy.  Or, if you prefer, just try it with the almond milk and vegan protein powder then ease your way into the additional options.  I love Plant Fusion's vegan protein powder in chocolate!  It took me a long time to find a vegan protein powder that doesn't have a chalky taste/consistency and this one is the clear winner.

 PEANUT BUTTER + CHOCOLATE SMOOTHIE RECIPE

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • 1 Banana, sliced + frozen
  • approx. 3/4 cup chocolate almond milk (I mix half of the original almond milk with half of the chocolate for a chocolatey taste with less sugar)
  • 1 scoop chocolate Vegan Protein Powder (my fav is Plant Fusion Chocolate vegan protein powder.  I pick mine up at Whole Foods, but you can also find it here.)
  • 1 TBS. natural peanut butter (we love Jiff Natural or the Whole Foods 365 brand)
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice
  • 1-2 tsp. Matcha Powder, optional
  • 1 scoop Green SuperFood, optional (I pick this up at Whole Foods, too, but you can get it here.)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Blend until smooth and creamy.  Enjoy!

    Enjoy, friends!  It's SO yummy!  You'll love it!  

     xo, Amy
