The world seems to have gone protein powder crazy in recent years – of course protein is important, especially for those looking to gain muscle mass, but it really doesn’t require lots of expensive supplements. If you’re one of those protein obsessives but can’t/don’t want to move away from natural sources, this is a smoothie for you. Chocolate and peanut butter are a fairly classic (American) combination and this is a really creamy, delicious smoothie that doesn’t “taste healthy” at all. Feel free to replace with another nut butter if desired, although this will naturally change the nutritional content.
- 1 banana
- 1 tbsp natural peanut butter
- 1-2 tbsps cocoa powder (I like it really chocolatey so use 2)
- 125ml / 1/2 cup milk
- 150g Greek yogurt
Directions: Add everything to a blender and blend until smooth.
