Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

I've got one more chocolate recipe for you this month that you can enjoy anytime of day!



     This month's recipe redux theme is asking us to create a recipe using our favorite chocolate pairing. The first thing that came to my mind was my love for chocolate with peanut butter and banana. This perfect trio makes an appearance in my day at least once or twice a week. Whether its peanut butter dipped in chocolate and peanut butter or all three baked into pancakes, bread or cookies.
     One of my favorite ways to enjoy these ingredients is in a smoothie. My Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie makes a perfect pre or post work out snack, dessert or meal replacement shake. The banana gives it a smooth silky texture while the peanut butter and chocolate work together to give this shake a rich flavor.

    This shake also makes a great on-the-go breakfast. Perfect on those days when you need a little chocolate to get you going in the morning!
