A thick, frothy shake made with frozen bananas, low fat powdered peanut butter, chia seeds and chocolate almond milk. This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie with Chia Seeds recipe is low fat and perfect for a snack or breakfast on the go.
Please note: The chia seeds and shaved chocolate on top of the smoothie in the photos are for aesthetic purposes only, chia seeds need to be soaked. Chia seeds can be a choking hazard or cause severe constipation or blockages since they expand with liquid.
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.
Did I mention it’s healthy? You can have your shake and drink it, too. Sold!
Why you’ll love this chocolate peanut butter smoothie
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.
Ingredients you’ll need
- Powdered Peanut Butter (PB & Me)
- Frozen banana
- Low fat plain greek yogurt
- Sugar free chocolate almond milk
- ice, optional
How to make this delicious smoothie
Making this smoothie (and pretty much any smoothie) is super easy – dump your ingredients into your blender (start with almond milk), blend until it’s smooth, and add ice to thicken it up if it’s too thin.
Drink up & enjoy!
