Ingredients to make a Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie:
- Fresh or frozen bananas
- Plant based milk (or preferred milk), I used unsweetened almond milk
- Cocoa powder (dutch processed)
- Peanut butter, I used natural pb (the one that separates and is made with just peanuts)
- Vanilla extract
- Protein powder, I use collagen but you can skip if you’d like
- Chia seeds (I’d use 1 tsp)
- Flax seed (1 tsp)
- Granola for topping
- Cacao Nibs
Which milk is good for a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup smoothie?
My go-to milk for smoothies is always plant based. I find that unsweetened almond milk works best and adds a slight nutty taste that won’t overpower your smoothie. I’ve also been loving oat milk with my smoothies, but keep in mind it adds a few extra carbs (if that’s of concern). Since this smoothie includes bananas, I’d suggest sticking to nut milks over oat and dairy.
Which peanut butter is good for a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup smoothie?
I love using all-natural peanut butter in our smoothies, usually the creamy and drippy kind. I like that the ingredients are simply peanuts and salt.
