Peanut butter and bananas are a match made in heaven.
Add chocolate to that mix and your tastebuds will have a tastegasm. Yes, that’s a real word.
This chocolate peanut butter smoothie has just 4 ingredients, takes 5 minutes or less to prepare and makes a simply sensational breakfast that will power you up for the day like nothing else.
Or you can just go ahead and have it anytime you like, because you know, why the heck not?
This chocolate shake is smooth, rich, creamy, chocolatey, dreamy and decadent, while also being hearty and healthy.
All you need is some ripe bananas, cocoa powder (or raw cacao powder if you’re brave, it’s pretty potent in the caffeine department) a jar of peanut butter, coconut water (plain water will work too) and cacao nibs to make it extra pretty and throw in some chocolate crunch.
And of course you need a blender.
If you have all these things on hand, then you’ll soon be on your way to chocolate peanut butter heaven!
I recommend you drink it right away, as fresh fruit oxidises.
It’s so delicious you’re not going to want to wait anyway.
You can share it if you like (as you can see, it can serve 2), but I like this one all to myself! So I marked the recipe as ‘serves 1’.
You’re welcome. 🙂
