It’s getting cold outside in the northeast in the U.S., but I still love my smoothies. I have been enjoying this chocolate peanut butter bliss smoothie as my go-to autumn smoothie because it’s rich, packed with protein, and gives me a healthy chocolate fix. I know some people don’t like to use protein powders; I was in that camp for a long time too. I respect that. However, I do well on a natural vegan protein powder added to my morning smoothie. I like the flavor in combination with the fruit and vegetables and it helps me stay satisfied longer.
12 oz water
4 ice cubes
2 frozen bananas
1 TBSP raw cacao powder
3 drops stevia (or sweetener of your choice such as dates, maple syrup coconut sugar, etc.)
1 scoop chocolate vegan protein powder (I use Plant Fusion or Sun Warrior)
1-2 TBSP organic peanuts* or organic peanut butter or 4 TBSP organic peanut butter powder
1 handful organic spinach
*Note: I only recommend using whole peanuts if you have a high speed blender.
1. Blend all ingredients on high until smooth. Enjoy!
