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.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie #recipe

You only need 3 ingredients for this smoothie, so it’s quick and easy!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie #recipeStart 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.

  1. I love this. I made a lot of smoothies when my son was 2. He ate veggies well but not enough of them so I would mix in a little veggies to a smoothie. He loved them. I am going to have to start making them again. I am going to try this. Pinning for future reference.
