Who doesn’t love to celebrate the end of a great run with chocolate? How about some delicious and good for you chocolate? I love a post-run chocolate peanut butter smoothie. It’s my go-to drink after a run. A little bit of protein, some good potassium and carbs make this chocolate peanut butter smoothie a good recovery snack.
You only need 3 ingredients for this smoothie, so it’s quick and easy!
Start with frozen bananas. I always keep frozen bananas in the fridge. I use them for this smoothie and banana swirl. Chop up a ripe banana or two and toss them into the freezer and you’ll have them ready when you need them. Toss the frozen bananas into a blender. I like this little personal blender when I’m just making one smoothie. It’s so much easier to clean than the big blender! And you can drink right from the container!
Add your PB2 and chocolate milk (I’m an almond milk drinker) and give it a whirl.
It’s also good if you don’t have a frozen banana on hand, just a room temperature one, but I really suggest trying the frozen! So refreshing! And full of good stuff to help you recover from your workout.
- 1-2 bananas, chopped and frozen
- 2 tbsp PB2
- 1 cup chocolate milk (I prefer almond)
- Add frozen bananas, PB2 and chocolate milk to a blender and pulse until combined. Serve immediately.
