Chocolate Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie - My Favorite Go to Smoothie!

This is my favorite go-to smoothie since I always have the ingredients on hand! Might satisfy a chocolate craving in a healthier sort of way ;) Makes 2 cups and Serves 1-2 people. Nutrition facts are listed below for the entire 2 cups.

1 banana (approx. 95 grams peeled)

2 tablespoons chia seeds or flax seed

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

2 tablespoons peanut butter powder

¾ cup milk

1 cup ice (about 10-15 cubes)

handful of spinach or kale leaves (optional)

Blend until smooth. I use the smoothie setting on my Blendtec. Serve immediately!


  • If you have a cheap blender the chia seeds may not grind up all the way, which is fine, but not the best texture, so you might leave those out if your blender isn’t powerful enough. 

  • Also, the sweetness of the final drink will depend on the size of your banana and how ripe it is.

  • I store my chia and flax seeds and my spinach and kale in the freezer, they last for a long time!

  • I LOVE my 2 Tablespoon stainless steel scoop for this recipe and many more!

  • If you are concerned about your spinach or kale completely blending in, you can blend the leaves and milk until no green specs are visible, first before adding the rest of the ingredients.
