Chocolate Peanut Butter “Milkshakes”

My love for smoothies and blended drinks is no secret to anyone in my family. I often throw smoothies together for breakfast or a mid-morning snack. Whenever my toddler hears the blender, he comes running and shouts “smoothie!” I happily share with him— especially since I generally make them with fresh fruit, yogurt, veggies and milk.

This drink is healthy, but tastes more like dessert. Since embarking on a “clean eating” challenge this summer, I’m always looking for new ways to satisfy my sweet tooth, but still keep my diet as clean as possible. This smoothie tastes more like a milkshake and while it doesn’t have any hidden veggies, it’s packed with tons of protein and vitamins. It’s incredibly chocolatey and the measurements are very forgiving. I rarely measure anything when I’m throwing this together for a special treat.

Ingredients:

  • 1 frozen banana, cut into chunks
  • ½ cup – 2/3 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk (depending on how thick you want your milkshake)
  • 1-2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder (more or less to your taste)
  • 1 tsp Chia seeds
  • 4 oz. plain Greek yogurt – this is ½ of a small container (optional)
  • 2 tsp natural peanut butter
  • 1 tsp honey or 1 packet of Stevia
  • Mini-chocolate chips to garnish (optional)

Directions:

Simply combine all of the ingredients into a blender and start it up. This delicious drink only takes a few minutes to throw together, but will leave you satisfied for hours. The end result is a cold and refreshing indulgence that tastes like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup without the guilt.

Bon appetit!
