Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Some people drink green smoothies. I tried. Once. It was gross.

This, on the other hand, is delicious. It's chock full of protein ... and chocolate. How Sweet It Is nailed this, although mine was much more smoothie than smoothie bowl to eat with a spoon. I'm trying to convince myself this is a healthy breakfast because of all the nutrients and such ... it did keep me full until lunch, so that counts for something.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
2 cups chocolate almond milk
1 cup ice
1/2 cup cup plain Greek yogurt
3 frozen bananas
4 Tbsp. cocoa powder
3 Tbsp. peanut butter
3 Tbsp. hemp seeds
1 Tbsp. chia seeds
2 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Either drink or slurp from bowls if your version is thick enough. You can top with whatever you please, but the original post suggested cacoa nibs, chia seeds, coconut flakes, sliced almonds, sliced banana, peanut butter or hemp seeds. Makes 2 to 4 servings.
