Okay so It’s no secret that I am a nut butter addict, I know I’m not alone. Peanut butter is my number one. I used to hate the all natural stuff, Instead I’d opt for something that had more palm oil and sugar than peanuts. Thankfully over time I managed to convert myself over (for the most part). Though don’t the processed stuff still has a place in my heart.
Moving on. Here’s my fall back smoothie when you just want a slap of something delicious. I’m all about adding greens into my smoothies but sometimes they just don’t have a place. This really ticks all the boxes for me-sweet, creamy and slightly salty.
I’ve listed some optional extras which I’ll be honest I always add in. I get that protein powders and cacao nibs don’t float everyone’s boat so the choice is yours!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
1 Frozen Banana
2 tesapoons of Cacao Powder
1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
1 tablespoon on Peanut Butter
1/2-1 cup of Milk, quantity depends on how thick you like it.
1 tablespoon of Cacao Nibs
1 Shot of Espresso
1 Scoop of Protein Powder (I like this one)
Place all ingredients into the blender, I use my beloved nutribullet, any blender will work fine. Whizz together until all the ingredients are combined and the smoothie is thick and creamy. Serve it up.
