now and then day, I crave chocolate. I would say it is a problem, but I really don’t mind it. My senior year of high school, I wrote a speech on the history of chocolate. In a nutshell, it’s delicious on everything.
One day, I was making a smoothie by throwing all of the things I love into the blender to make one big super food dessert shake. After multiple attempts (all delicious), I finally found the perfect combination. The peanut butter chocolate banana smoothie is great for breakfast, lunch, or whenever you have a chocolate craving you can’t shake with a piece of dark chocolate.
Handful spinach (turns the smoothie a bit greenish brown, but is packed full of protein and nutrients)
3 squares cacao (I like the 72% cacao bars from Trader Joes)
Unsweetened coconut flakes (to garnish/top smoothie with)
Mix all ingredients in blender until smooth. If using cacao squares, drop in blender just before shutting off to add a little crunch.
Pour into glass and top with coconut flakes.
Feel free to adjust the ingredients to your liking. You can make your chocolate banana smoothie any time of day. I like to add more peanut butter when I eat it for lunch.
