Peanut Butter, Chocolate & Banana Smoothie
Now I know there are all kinds of smoothie aficionados out there. I also know that people really like to make smoothies that are uber-healthy with greens and such. It makes sense for sure, but I think in the middle of winter, even a smoothie should be like comfort food.
Whenever I get bananas that get too ripe, I peel them and then put them in the freezer. They are then ready and waiting for the smoothie.
Put 2 frozen bananas, 2 cups of non-dairy milk, a couple tablespoons cocoa (or you could use chocolate non-dairy milk), and a couple tablespoons peanut butter in the blender and blend until creamy. Use sweetened soy milk or agave if you like it on the sweet side. A little bit of vanilla is also awesome here.
That is it. This is high in protein, antioxidants, and potassium. Also high in the yum factor. My kids love this smoothie.
