Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Green Smoothie

Sometimes green smoothies can taste so delicious you’d swear you are drinking a milkshake rather than fruits and vegetables! This chocolate peanut butter protein smoothie is like a rich and creamy dessert packed with vitamins and nutrients. I love to make one of these after a good workout for some muscle recovery. It’s so good it will make you want to work out just to have the smoothie afterward!

Chocolate PEANUT BUTTER

What you need:

  • 1 banana (frozen preferred)
  • Handful frozen blueberries
  • 1 1/4 cup spinach
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • Almond milk
  • 1 cup (or 1 package) vanilla yogurt

Mix everything in your blender, adding milk in small batches to ensure your smoothie isn’t too runny. To make a thicker consistency, I often freeze my banana and yogurt ahead of time. This will make your smoothie more like a milkshake.

This is a great green smoothie for beginners because the strong peanut butter and banana flavors hide the spinach taste almost completely. Top with a little whipped cream if you are feeling adventurous, and enjoy!
