Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Smoothie! A healthy smoothie recipe packed with protein and greens that tastes like a peanut butter cup! The perfect breakfast!

I’ve been SO excited to write this post and share one of my favorite things with you! So I won’t wait one more second to introduce you to my favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Smoothie!

I have told you before that I am a creature of habit. I adore mornings. I wake up, workout, clean up, then eat breakfast!  Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day because I get to eat one of these and drink this Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Smoothie.

I bought my Vitamix three years ago and have had a smoothie every day for breakfast since. I’m not kidding…I have even brought it along on a handful of family getaways…because you never need a vacation from smoothies for breakfast!

If you’ve read my blog for more than 3 seconds, it’s no surprise that my favorite smoothie tastes like a peanut butter cup. In my humble opinion, there is no greater flavor combination than chocolate and peanut butter.  I have spent three years drinking this smoothie…and to me, it is perfection in a glass.

I take my breakfasts seriously. After a good workout I need to refuel before I get to mommy & wifey all day. I fill that blender to the TOP folks. And drink it all by myself. No shame, just YUM!

If you like a super cold, creamy, thick smoothie…I suggest storing your greens in the freezer!  Using frozen fruits and vegetables gives you an ultra-creamy consistency without adding ice, which can water down the flavor.

Yes, my Vitamix looks a little dirty….but that’s what happens when you use something multiple times a day for years. It serves me well and I love it. I also love that I can nourish and refuel my body while drinking something that is liquid chocolate peanut butter perfection!

I started adding chocolate protein powder to this Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Smoothie recipe when my third baby was born. (I always use plant-based/vegan varieties). Nursing and chasing two other kids around left me completely exhausted. I realized that in order to function I needed to increase my protein intake.

Adding a scoop of protein powder not only improved and intensified the chocolate flavor (yay), but it also gave me increased energy throughout the day. If you love chocolate & peanut butter and want to start your day right, this smoothie is for you! 🙂

Notes

*Protein powder is optional but highly recommended! I use plant-based, vegan powders (preferably organic) to keep the quality and nutrition content high.

**I LOVE powdered peanut butter. I have used Honeyville organic, PB2, and Just great stuff and have loved them all. If peanut butter of the powdered variety isn't your jam...feel free to just use 1 TBS of your favorite peanut butter!
