Chocolate & Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie

Healthy Chocolate & Peanut Butter Breakfast Smoothie

This rich chocolate banana and peanut butter smoothie makes the best after school snack. A good calorie boost for growing kids and they will thank you for making them a treat.  I like to have one post workout to refuel nutrients. It even works as a quick breakfast when time is short on busy mornings.

Tess Masters of The Blender Girl created this easy smoothie version using common pantry ingredients so you can whip it up at anytime.

File it under simple smoothies that satisfy.
