This easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie is sure to quickly become a favorite in your kitchen, just like it is in mine…
All the smoothies.
There are a few things I could eat for any meal, any time of year. Brownies, for instance, or biscuits and gravy. But smoothies might just top both those delicious meals. (Yes, brownies are meals in my family.) Not only are smoothies super dang easy to make, you can pack just about anything in them you want, and none will be the wiser!
Spinach? Stick it in a smoothie. Kale? Stick it in a smoothie. Spirulina? Stick it in a smoothie. Cod liver oil? … You get the point.
But some days you just need a special smoothie treat to get you past breakfast. That’s where this beauty comes in.
A healthy addiction.
This Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie is my husband’s all-time favorite smoothie. I do believe he’d admit he’s addicted to it! If he doesn’t have one at least every two or three days, I swear he goes through withdraws.
Can you really blame him, though? Doesn’t this smoothie just look lovely? It tastes lovely too. 😉 As my husband puts it: “It’s wonderful to be able to eat something that tastes like ice cream for breakfast.”
That pretty much sums it up.
If you’re trying to stick to a paleo lifestyle, or simply can’t eat dairy or peanuts, this smoothie is easily modified. You can sub out the whole/raw milk for coconut milk. I like to make my own, but you can use store-bought, too. And the peanut butter can easily be traded for almond butter. I haven’t tried sunbutter, but I’d assume that would work, as well.

- 1 T. honey

Place everything but the ice in the blender (I use this one) and let sit for a minute or two until the chia seeds have absorbed some of the milk.
Add ice and blend on high until smooth.
