Sweet like dessert, but nutritious like breakfast!
The decadent combination of chocolate and peanut butter isn’t just for dessert anymore! Our chocolate and peanut butter breakfast smoothie combines delicious flavors with vital nutrients to satisfy your cravings and nourish your body.
Five Simple Ingredients in Five Minutes
If you’re like me, you’d agree that there’s nothing worse than realizing a recipe that sounds incredible requires a tremendous amount of work. Luckily, that’s not the case with this smoothie! All you need are five simple ingredients and five minutes (although, to be honest, it doesn’t even take that long).
The first ingredient is quite flavorful. It also adds a wide range of nutrients to your smoothie. Almond milk is low in calories and sugar, and in addition to being dairy-free, it’s a great source of healthy fats and calcium. This recipe calls for a quarter cup, but you can feel free to add as much as you’d like if you like a thinner smoothie.
While banana will add a bit of fruity flavor to this smoothie, it’s mainly present to contribute to the texture. You’ll want to be sure to freeze your banana overnight to give your smoothie a dense, creamy consistency. Bananas are a good source of potassium, vitamin B-6, and vitamin C.
This yummy ingredient will improve the texture of this smoothie, but it also adds that sweet and nutty flavor that we all know and love! Try to choose a peanut butter with no added sugars. That way, you’ll get all of the energy-boosting healthy fats without the empty calories from added sugar.
The chocolate in this chocolate and peanut butter breakfast smoothie comes from cocoa powder. Cocoa powder is an excellent way to add a decadent chocolatey flavor to any recipe without adding a ton of extra calories.
This final ingredient will add just a bit of natural sweetness to this smoothie to tie the rest of the flavors together.
Breakfast in a Blender
All you need to do in the morning is throw your ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth! This well-rounded, healthy smoothie has only 335 calories, and it will provide you with 11 grams of protein, 18 grams of healthy fats, and 42 grams of energizing carbs! It’s an awesome breakfast. If you’re feeling fancy, feel free to enjoy it as a healthy dessert every once in a while, too!
