Simple Chocolate-Peanut Banana Smoothie

This easy-to-make smoothie tastes indulgent, but it’s full of healthy ingredients. 

Bananas that are overripe are perfect for smoothies – simply peel them, and put them on a cookie sheet in the freezer. When they’re frozen solid, transfer them to an air-tight plastic bag and store them in the freezer until you’re ready to make a smoothie.

If you’re rushed in the morning, measure the yogurt, peanut butter, and cocoa powder into a large cup in the evening. Stick it in the fridge, and make sure that you have a banana in the freezer. The next day, you’ll have a quick, healthy, and satisfying breakfast just a push of a blender button away!

Ingredients:
-1 frozen banana
-1 cup vanilla yogurt (if you’re trying to cut back on sugar, use ½ cup plain yogurt and ½ cup vanilla yogurt)
-1 tablespoon all-natural peanut butter
-1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

Directions:
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Enjoy immediately or refrigerate for up to a day.

Makes 1 meal-sized serving or 2 snack-sized servings

  1. Ooh, yum! Have you tried Kefir Milk in your smoothies? Insanely good for you and delicious! Love the idea of prepping some smoothies the night before!

  2. Hi Brianne,
    I have had kefir before, but I haven't had it in a smoothie - that's a great idea! I'll have to give it a try if I can get a hold of some kefir :)
