Peanut Butter Smoothie

pbsmoothie1a

I love all things chocolate and peanut butter. Cupcakescookiesbrowniesblondies- you name it and it’s all good in my book. But up until a few months ago, I had never tried my favorite combination in the form of a smoothie or milkshake. It was time for that to change. This peanut butter smoothie is incredibly creamy and delicious- so much better than any other version I have tried since then. While the peanut butter smoothie is good enough on its own, I always add a little bit of chocolate syrup to the mix. Feel free to leave out the chocolate syrup if you want, but it is completely non-optional for me.

And for all of you who are still sticking strong to New Years resolutions, these peanut butter smoothies are made with low-fat Greek yogurt, old fashioned oats and frozen banana. Relatively healthy and delicious. Unless of course you add too much chocolate syrup. I am always guilty on that one.

    Love this peanut butter smoothie! I’ve never thought to make a peanut butter smoothie either but this sounds like it would make an awesome breakfast with all the oats, banana and greek yogurt. Hehe, I’m with you, I would totally add some chocolate syrup in here too:)

    Hehehe the chocolate syrup part isn’t optional for me either. I love that combo!

    I just made a chocolate peanut butter smoothie/milkshake yesterday! I didn’t have oats or ice though … I’m definitely trying this one next time! I’m so glad you didn’t skimp on the peanut butter; I love that stuff! This smoothie looks incredible, Meghan, and your photos are SO good!

    This looks amazing! I love the addition of the oats, it adds such good flavor to smoothies! And peanut butter and chocolate together can never go wrong. I think a little extra chocolate syrup is always needed ;)
