I was having a breakfast CRISIS.
Let me back up – I get stuck in the biggest breakfast ruts. I will eat the same thing every day for weeks on end until I suddenly can’t stand it anymore and need something new.
Several weeks ago when my tastebuds were demanding a change, I sent out a text to a few of my friends asking them what they ate for breakfast. My friend, Laine, texted back a super short recipe and I knew I had found a winner.
Chocolate for breakfast?? Ummmm YES.
The first time I tried this Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie I thought maybe someone had accidentally slipped me a Wendy’s Frosty.
It was THAT GOOD.
But the difference between a Wendy’s Frosty and this smoothie is that everything in this recipe is healthy. Woohoo!
- 2 overripe bananas, peeled, sliced and frozen
- 1 heaping spoonful of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 heaping spoonful of peanut butter
- 1-2 cups Unsweetened Plain Almond Milk
- Flaxseed (optional)
- Blend everything together and enjoy!
I am not even kidding you that I have eaten this smoothie at least 100 times since summer started. And I don’t think I am going to get tired of it.
I hope you and your kids enjoy it too!
