Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie


Here we go again.  Another smoothie recipe.  I can't help myself, they're just so good.

And quick, and easy, and healthy.

There's been a lot of smoothie goodness coming out of my blender lately, and this chocolate peanut butter banana combo is a keeper.  One of the boys said it tastes like Reese's Puffs cereal.

Which amazes me, because I swear I've only bought that stuff like, twice.  Clearly it made an impression.

I wonder if I'll ever hear anyone say "Mmmm, this tastes just like that healthy whole grain sugar free cereal you always buy."

Doubt it.

But if they ask for more smoothies like this one, because it tastes more like a treat than a healthy meal replacement, I'm good with that.


Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie

2 small or 3 medium bananas (I use over-ripe, frozen bananas, they're super sweet!)
1 scoop (1/3 cup) chocolate protein powder*
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 1/2 - 2 cups milk of choice

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

*If you don't have chocolate protein powder, use vanilla flavoured protein powder and add 1 tbsp of cocoa powder.

Need more smoothie inspiration?

  4. I make this with chocolate protein powder, almond milk, pb, and bananas. I bet it would be even better with the yogurt and hemp seeds. Thanks for sharing!

  13. I have been on a smoothie kick, and this is super simliar to one of my favorite recipes. I don't use hemp seeds, or any other seeds for that matter, but the rest is spot on! I also bump up the protein with greek yogurt. Usually those 80 or 100 calorie versions! Thanks for linking up with us this week at The Wednesday Showcase!
