Low Fat Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie with Chia Seeds

* MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS.

The other day I ran into my neighbour in the grocery store. We were chit chatting while walking around the store when we came upon “The Sample Lady” giving out free samples of PB & Me peanut butter…. Mmmmm I love a good peanut butter! However this peanut butter was a little different – it was powdered! I’ve never seen powdered peanut butter before at my grocery store – I’ve seen it at health food stores but being able to buy it at my local grocery store is much more convenient.

After trying the PB & Me I had this genius idea to throw a few scoops into the blender with a frozen banana and chocolate almond milk. The result is a thick, peanut-buttery, uber chocolatey shake.

This smoothie is certainly delicious enough to be served as a faux milkshake, if you want to drink it post-meal at a time of day when such a thing is actually appropriate. I occasionally also add Kefir to my smoothies to make sure I get a dose of probiotics before I start the day, and a good helping of nut-based protein (in this case, peanut butter and almond milk). This smoothie is dairy-free and healthy. Just the sort of sweet beverage I need to wean me off of my morning muffin cravings.
