Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Hot summer months call for a deliciously cool chocolate drink like this Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie!

Made with only 4-ingredients, this plant-based smoothie takes less than 5 minutes to whip-up and will satisfy your sweet cravings.

I like drinking this smoothie at breakfast or having it as a snack, dessert or even post-workout meal because it has a great balance of carbohydrates and protein – not to mention, fiber.

The simple sugars from the banana and the protein from the peanut butter will help satiate you and help aid in muscle recovery post workout.

If you want to bulk-up the smoothie to make it an ideal meal replacement, then I recommend blending it with oats and fresh spinach leaves. That way, you will get a whole grain and vegetable serving along with the fruit, dairy and protein servings.

The best thing about this vegan chocolate peanut butter shake is that it’s only 210 calories with 9 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber per serving.

    I have used a similar recipe with less PB2 but will start using this recipe!

      It’s one of my favorites because the protein in the PB2 balances out the carbohydrates of the banana so that you stay satiated longer. Plus, it’s not full of chemicals or ingredients you can’t pronounce like most chocolate protein powders.
