Chocolate-Almond Butter Smoothie

2 Comments

This is my go-to smoothie. I’ve always been a sucker for the chocolate-peanut butter combo, but I’ve since upgraded to the better-for-you almond butter. Just as tasty, I swear! It’s a great meal replacer – sometimes I have this for breakfast, sometimes I have it when I just want a quick lunch, & occasionally I’ll make it for dessert. The best part? There’s absolutely no reason to feel guilty indulging in it! Chock full of protein, good fats, & all the yummy things in a banana & cocoa without needing to worry about too many excess sugars & calories. Delicious!

For one smoothie, you’ll need:

Blend altogether, & enjoy!
