Recipe: PB2 Banana Chocolate Shake

I am in love with this smoothie, as it satisfies both nutrition and a sweet tooth. It is perfect for dessert, a snack, breakfast, or whatever else you’re feeling. I love whipping up this smoothie a few hours after dinner when I’m still feeling hungry, and am craving something sweet and satisfying. I probably make this smoothie three times a week!

If you want something more filling, I recommend this smoothie instead. Due to the peanut butter and some other additions, it has more fat protein, thus more calories; I like it better post-workout, as my breakfast, or some other time that’s not right before bed.

The PB2 provides a nutty, rich taste and the cinnamon adds an amount of spice that’s just right. I am a chocolate addict, so the chocolate in here is a necessity!

Note: Feel free to substitute the chocolate protein powder for 1 tbsp. cacao powder! It will have the same chocolate flavor; there will not be as much protein.
