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!
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!
