If there’s anything that’s got chocolate and peanut butter written on it, 9/10 you can count me in. I think it’s the world’s most amazing duo, the most delicious combination. And if I get to have it in the morning without any guilt? I call that a great start to my day.

That’s exactly what this smoothie is. It’s the perfect way to energize you in the morning. It’s full of delicious flavors. And it most definitely beats those full-of-sugar-store-bought morning drinks.

And the best part? You only need five ingredients for this smoothie. Just toss, blitz, and gulp. It’s easy peasy.

What Goes In The Smoothie

Cacao Powder. This gives your smoothie a delicious, rich chocolate taste. You could use unsweetened cocoa, but I always prefer to use organic cacao powder in my smoothies. Organic cacao powder is packed with flavonoids which have been shown to not only lower blood pressure but also improve blood flow and aid in preventing blood clots.

Peanut Butter. Try using the kind that only has peanuts and maybe salt listed in the ingredients. Peanut butter packs a protein punch, so this smoothie will get you through the first hours of work without that dreaded 11 AM crash.

Overripe Bananas. Smoothies are a wonderful way to use up those overripe bananas. As bananas ripen, they get sweeter. That means you don’t have to reach for artificial sweeteners to add into your smoothie. The bananas alone will get the job done.

Flax Seeds. These are superfoods. They are so nutritious, and they don’t really alter the flavors. Adding a tablespoon of flax seeds really gets you some essential vitamins and minerals.

Milk Of Your Choice. I prefer almond milk. But whole cow’s milk works just fine too – plus it adds more protein.
