This Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie started out as a copycat of the Peanut Butter Moo’d from Jamba Juice. We might have someone in the family who used to work there and helped us figure out a pretty good substitute. Since then, I have kind of made it my own and turned it into something my kids ask for a lot.
As in I have to say no several times a week. When they ask for a smoothie, this Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie is what they are talking about.
They ask for it all the time, and even though it’s probably the healthiest thing that they actually like, they might need a little variety. I mean, duh!, it’s chocolate and peanut butter. So…it’s healthy as a dessert goes, but not really super HEALTHY breakfast material. Not that you couldn’t justify it for breakfast every once in awhile. My mom would approve. Although, there were some nights when she would serve popcorn for dinner. So…
I must admit that there are mornings that I throw in some oats and am just glad they’re eating some fruit for breakfast. Don’t judge. I’m pretty sure this has more nutritional value than a pop-tart.
- 1 cup chocolate soy milk
- 1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup vanilla frozen yogurt
- 1 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 1/2 cups ice
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. You may need to add a bit more milk, depending on how thick you want your smoothie.
Regular chocolate milk would work fine for this, or almond milk (which is one of our favorites). Use what you've got!
If I do throw in some oats, it's usually about 1/3 cup dry oats.
