Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie

I’ve been making this single-serving of a crazy flavorful, low-fat, high protein smoothie for myself and double it if Christian is home.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 banana, peeled, sliced, and frozen
  • 1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder (I sometimes skip this and just make it PB&B.)
  • 1/2 cup non-fat, plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Splenda, honey, maple syrup, or agave…whatever sweetener you like. (I actually stopped adding Splenda as an overripe banana is plenty sweet for us.)
  • 1 Tablespoon peanut butter (Any kind you like but we prefer all natural, i.e., the only ingredient listed is peanuts.)

Directions:

  1. Make sure you have a strong, powerful blender that will blend up the frozen banana.
  2. Put all of the ingredients into the blender, in the order listed, and blend on high until thick and smooth.
  3. Drizzle glass with 1 teaspoon of chocolate syrup (optional) and enjoy!

Additional Notes:

If you prefer a less sweet smoothie, you can leave out the honey. Add more peanut butter for a stronger peanut butter taste. Add more milk to make the smoothie thinner, if desired. Add 1 cup of your favorite greens for added nutrition. So many ways to play around with this simple smoothie!
