Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

This has quickly become a staple recovery smoothie for me, combining the sweetness of chocolate and banana, the protein of a vegan protein powder and plant based milk, and the goodness that is peanut butter. I simply don’t tire of the combination.

Ingredients for the smoothie. Note that you use very ripe frozen banana instead of one of these fresh, green ones!

Here’s my recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Silk 10g protein milk (plain, vanilla, or chocolate)
  • 1 frozen banana 
  • 2 T peanut butter
  • 1 scoop Orgain protein powder (vanilla)
  • 1 T cocoa

Mix all ingredients in a high powered blender until smooth, and enjoy!

Notes: you can use chocolate protein powder instead of vanilla, and if you do this and/or use chocolate protein milk, you can omit the cocoa. I tend to keep vanilla protein powder on hand because it’s more versatile! You can use your favorite vegan protein powder; it doesn’t have to be Orgain. I just like this one because it tastes great and is readily available. 

Unfortunately, the secret is out about my favorite plant based milk, the Silk 10g Protein variety. I’ve been having a difficult time finding it in the grocery store! I’ve been making special trips to Food Lion to buy a few at a time, since it’s been weeks since my local Kroger has had it in stock! It’s not typically available at Walmart or Publix. It’s also available at Whole Foods and Wegmans, which are special trip stores for me, since they are not close to home. 

If you are looking for a tasty way to supplement your protein intake, this smoothie fits the bill, providing 27g of protein!

      1. I tried the smoothie (with minor substitutions) after my tennis match this evening. As expected, delicious and refreshing!
