Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothies

In the past, we were never too crazy about smoothies.  The healthier I tried to make them (by adding greens or flax or fish oil) the less likely my kids were to drink them.  Frankly, I don't blame them.  I don't care for the traditional berry/yogurt kind, either.  But, there's one kind of smoothie that we all love.  Probably because it tastes more like a milkshake and it satisfies my daily chocolate craving.  Unlike smoothies that are mostly carbs, the peanut butter in this smoothie provides protein that will stick with you, making it a great snack or dare I say, breakfast.

Here's what you'll need:


2 cups milk or almond milk
3 Tbsps unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup peanut butter
Honey to taste
 2 bananas - It's especially awesome if the bananas are frozen.  Bananas freeze well.  Just peel them and put them in a ziploc bag

Combine in a blender or food processor.

Serves 3.

Cheers!
