I love all things chocolate and peanut butter. Cupcakes, cookies, brownies, blondies– 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.
- 1 cup low-fat plain greek yogurt
- 6 tbsp creamy peanut butter
- ½ peeled banana, frozen
- ½ cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup ice
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp honey
- Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until fully incorporated and completely smooth. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
