Smoothies are a huge deal at our house.  Our entire family is ga-ga over frozen blended drinks. Not just in the summer either.  All.... The “Healthier” Peanut Butter Chocolate + Banana Smoothie

Smoothies are a huge deal at our house.  Our entire family is ga-ga over frozen blended drinks. Not just in the summer either.  All. Year.  Round!  They are a great way to sneak all sorts of veggies and fruits (and chia and flax, etc.) into any diet, especially the kids’.

I love those deep green, nutrient-packed smoothie, but sometimes… I just want my smoothie to have all the ‘good stuff’ while also tasting REALLY good.  Like, ‘peanut buttery chocolatey’ kind of good.

So, the other day, I created this concoction.  I’m calling it the “Healthier” Peanut Butter Chocolate + Banana Smoothie.  It’s kind of my own rendition of the Chocolate Peanut Butter and Banana Milkshake on the  Hershey’s Kitchens site.  While the original version looks divine, I wanted to see if I could make a blended drink I would feel slightly less guilty about enjoying (especially since I had just come home from the gym!).

“Healthier” Peanut Butter Chocolate + Banana Smoothie

1 ripened banana
1 handfull of ice
1 tbsp. REESE Spreads

Method:

  1. Add all of the above listed ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

I was really happy with the results of my smoothie and felt good about my ‘healthier treat’ as well.  This is something I could see myself sharing with my kids as a special treat!
