Have you ever found a new food you love, and you suddenly can’t get enough of it? Well, that’s this smoothie for me. So good I gotta share with y’all. I’m not gonna lie, even though I was SO pumped to get my new blender (a few months ago), when it came down to it, I rarely make smoothies because I get lazy. But THIS smoothie… this smoothie is worth it. And it doesn’t even take that long to make! (most smoothies don’t… I don’t really know why I get lazy when it comes to this lol). It’s only a few ingredients, and they’re things you typically have lying around the kitchen anyway. So there, you have no excuse not to try it!
Back in college, my froomie bestie Haley and I lived about 2 minutes from Sonic (AND chick fila. Still wondering how I didn’t gain a million pounds in college). During the summer when they had half price milkshakes, we would make up any excuse possible to go get one. Like, every night. [bear with me, this story is relevant]. My favorite milkshake from there – and trust me I tried almost all – was the chocolate PB banana. Holy yum.
THAT’S WHAT THIS SMOOTHIE TASTES LIKE. And it’s like 1/25th of the calories!! Holla holla. I mean the texture, consistency, and taste are all perfect. That is all.
1 frozen banana
1 cup milk (I use fat free/skim and it tastes fine; use what you like)
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
2-3 teaspoons cocoa powder
honey or stevia to taste (I use 1 stevia packet + 1 squirt of honey!)
Blend until it reaches the right consistency (usually 30-ish seconds); enjoy!
Try it and please let me know what you think if you do! Happy weekend loves.
