Who doesn’t love the chocolate and peanut butter combo. This smoothie is simple, filling, and nutritious. Oh, and most importantly, delicious.
I titled this one “high protein” because it is perfect for someone trying to get more protein in your diet or as a post-workout snack. I’m not going to give you an exact protein amount because it’s going to depend on a few things: your protein powder, yogurt, and peanut butter choices. This one that I made packs about 50g of protein. That’s A LOT.
For the frozen bananas, just peel some bananas, break them in chunks and put in a freezer-safe container overnight. I use a Stasher bag.
I ALWAYS freeze bananas when they are starting to go brown. It’s a great way to reduce food waste and always have smoothie ingredients at the ready. If you don’t have frozen bananas, you can also use regular bananas and just add ice to the smoothie.
I used my favorite protein powder, Ascent Protein, in Chocolate. Any chocolate protein powder will work, I just love the ingredients and taste of Ascent.
The chocolate crumbles on top are optional, but I love a little crunch on a smoothie! This is Kashi Go Crunch in Chocolate Crunch, but chocolate chips or any chocolate granola would work!
