Chocolate any time of day? For me, yes. My sweet tooth can sometimes (98% of the time) get out of control. When I am able to find recipes, such as this smoothie one, that satisfy my sweet tooth without a ton of calories/fat/sugar/whatever else- I’m a happy camper. This smoothie tastes like someone threw a Reeses’ Peanut Butter Cup in a blender. Yeah, not joking.
For my smoothies in the morning, I like to add some oatmeal. I find it adds substance and makes the smoothie more of a meal. Between the protein powder, peanut butter and oats, I’m not worried about feeling hungry any time soon. Who am I kidding? I never stay full… for any normal person, this would keep you satisfied for hours.
With the banana in there, you get that smooth, creamy texture. When I’ve made this smoothie before, I have also substituted half an avocado for the banana. It gives it the same taste/texture. If you happen to not have bananas, but have half an avocado to spare- I suggest trying this!
