I shared a version of this recipe a few years ago, but it had some fussy steps in it, like freezing coconut milk into ice cubes (hello, person with too much time on her hands. . .).
Over the years, this has remained a staple in our house, but I’ve simplified it so that I can make it without having to think ahead three or four hours.
Because, ain’t nobody got time for that around here.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
(adapted from A Beautiful Mess)
1 large frozen ripe banana
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 T cocoa powder (the kind you make hot chocolate with, so it’s already sweetened)
4-6 ice cubes
1/4 – 1/2 cup regular or almond milk
Place all ingredients in the blender with the lesser amount of milk.
Blend, adding milk as needed, until it’s smooth and your desired consistency.
