This protein-rich breakfast smoothie is made with natural, creamy peanut butter and plenty of rich cocoa. The best recipe for breakfast in the busy morning to go!
I was recently joking with my friend that some days I wish my six year old was happy with a simple bowl of breakfast cereal instead of his usual morning smoothie.
The truth be told: it is not happening. He is obsessed with smoothies and I have no one to blame but myself!
Now that Kindergarten has started, I am always working to modify your morning smoothie recipe so that it goes to school with lots of protein and other nutrients. This chocolate peanut butter smoothie recipe is made with unsweetened cocoa powder and is naturally sweetened with a ripe banana, with no added sugar or honey.
For omega-3s, protein, and fiber, I add a tablespoon of flax seed meal. You don't taste it in the final product, but it's a great nutrient booster to add to cupcakes, pancakes, waffles, etc.
To make the smoothie thicker, add additional ice or start with frozen bananas.
