I have to admit the first time I heard of a chocolate peanut butter smoothie I thought GROSS… that is till I tried it. Then I was hooked and wanted them all the time. But lets face it smoothies are not cheap when you buy them from a smoothie shop or Jamba Juice. So I decided I better figure out how to make it at home and save a little money.
Recipe makes one large smoothie
You will need:
1 cup chocolate milk
1/2 cup crushed ice
1 large banana that has been sliced and frozen
2 tablespoons peanut butter
It is really important that your bananas are frozen before you make the smoothie or the texture and thickness of the smoothie will be “off”. Taking the extra step to slice and freeze the bananas before is well worth the time. I slice them, then put them in an even layer on a plate while freezing.
Put the chocolate milk, ice, frozen banana and peanut butter into a blender and blend till smooth and all the ice chunks are gone. Enjoy!
