This Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie is a fantastic mood-boosting breakfast. It's filling and ready in 5 minutes! Satisfying, decadent yet totally healthy. Also, creamy, rich, chocolaty with an ice-cream-like texture. So good!
Take the blender and add all ingredients. Note: add wet ingredients first for easier blending.
Mix everything at high speed until you get a smooth texture.
If the smoothie is too thick, add a little more liquid – milk or water. Blend again until everything is well combined.
Taste the smoothie and add additional sweetener if the smoothie is not sweet enough to your taste. (See "Recipe tips" section for sweetener recommendation)
Transfer the smoothie into a smoothie glass.
Add toppings (optional): I used cacao nibs and hemp seeds. Be creative here and add toppings you like.
Serve and enjoy!
Makes 1 serving that serves 1 person as a full meal, or 2 servings as a light meal. As a measure, I used a US cup (240ml).Substitutions
