Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Posted on

Who says you can't have chocolate for breakfast? A good chocolate peanut butter smoothie is packed with the protein and deliciousness you need to start your day right. We'd like to thank whoever was the first person to realize that chocolate and peanut butter go together even better than bacon and eggs. 

Your Ingredient Options

Some chocolate peanut butter smoothie recipes include all sorts of expensive ingredients and flavored protein powders. If you're more of a "less is more" person, here are a few ingredients we recommend switching around to meet your personal taste buds and health goals: 

  • Liquid. Don't get stuck thinking that 2% milk is your only option for making a delicious chocolate peanut butter smoothie. There are plenty of fat-free, non-dairy milk options, and many people even love adding coffee as the main liquid ingredient for their morning caffeine boost. Try mixing it up with sweetened or unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk until you find your favorite.
  • Powder. If you simply must have a protein powder in your smoothie, it doesn't have to be chocolate flavored. You could experiment with a vanilla protein powder and cocoa powder for a similar chocolate peanut butter flavor. Also check out our Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Shake recipe.
  • Fruit. While we think a banana is the best fruit to round out a perfect chocolate peanut butter smoothie, we won't be offended if you swap it out for something crazy like pineapple chunks or blueberries. It's your life. You do you. 

That said, here is our favorite version of the ever-popular chocolate peanut butter smoothie, ideal for your breakfast fuel or satisfying that afternoon chocolate craving. Let us know how yours turns out!

  • I made this with almond milk and used frozen bananas and added greek yogurt (so no ice) and flax seed meal.

  • sorry for typos broken arm

    Kathleen Duggan Calder on

  • I used one date instead of honey and a tablespoon of cocoa. Delicious!

    Tina on

  • Very yummy! I used 2 tbsp of peanut butter instead of 11⁄2 tbsp and substituted honey for agave syrup.

    Zachary Luicer on

  • I ABSOLUTELY loved this recipe. I used skim milk, made the mistake of putting 1 tbsp of coco powder then 1/2 tbsp, & I added a nice piece of fresh ginger. It came out PERFECT

    Diamond703 on

  • I added a pork chop and and egg and it was the best!

  • I substituted:

    Flax seed milk
    Soynut butter
    Fair trade yacon root syrup (or Sorghum Syrup)
    Organic carob root powder
    Canned sweet potato + irish sea moss (thickener)
    Frozen coconut water cubes

    Make sure to rinse and soak the sea moss before use. If I’m not in a rush, I like to make my own wild rice milk (1 lb rice makes a bit more than 2 quarts). I serve this in a shelled coconut cup with a sprinkle of Amla powder on top. Delicious!

  • I substituted cocoa powder with cocoa Complete mix , which adds several plant foods. Love the end result!

    Erin O'Keefe Williams on

  • This was amazing. I made it with Almond Milk and added a little bit of Peanut Butter Protein to boost it’s health value. I think I’ll scale back on the coco powder next time to balance the sweetness.

    Aaron Phillips on

  • This was excellent! Instead of the coco powder, I used chocolate shakeology and it was perfect!

    Katherine Eugenia on

  • I substituted the cocoa powder for Nutella and milk with almond milk, this was delicious!
