This is continuation with my weekly SMOOTHIE recipe update from the archives. For a family of die – hard chocoholics,  its imperative that there are some kick ass Chocolate Smoothies in my repertoire.

I feel really good about  having this for breakfast as its protein rich, refined sugar-free, and tastes like dessert! Peanut butter adds a good amount of body to this smoothie, and that keeps you feeling full for a decent amount of time. I would strongly suggest using  good quality organic peanut butter here. They are  easily available in the market or online now.

I don’t add any sweetener to this smoothie as the bananas and dates do that job fairly well. We all prefer a more dark chocolate flavour. Kids sometimes do like a bit of maple syrup or honey in theirs, depending on their mood.:)

I always recommend using very ripe bananas as they add a lot more flavour and sweetness. To make the smoothie even creamier, you can try soaking the dates in a little bit of warm water to soften them. Then they blend very well with the rest of the ingredients. I don’t mind a bit of texture from the unsoaked ones.

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie is not only wonderful for breakfast, but it also is fabulous as an after school  snack or a post workout drink. You can always add a tablespoon of homemade protein powder to make this smoothie even more nutritionally abundant.

You can find the recipe for vegan homemade protein powder on these posts  GREEN SMOOTHIE   and  CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER BALLS .
