Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Avocado Smoothie

Do not let the title of this post scare you.
Yes, this is a a Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Avocado Smoothie.
This is one of the yummiest smoothies out there.
I started making this for my girls as a way to get more protein in their diets.
My girls aren't the best eaters. 
They don't eat a lot of protein (they are carb junkies like me!)
And, most nights after they were in bed, they would come downstairs saying that they were hungry.
I think it's because they weren't getting enough protein throughout the day.
But, this smoothie is packed full of protein. 
I lie to my children and tell them this is a Chocolate Milkshake :)
I have one for lunch at least once a week when I am on the go and it totally fills me up!
 Here is what you need:
-8 ounces of Chocolate Almond Milk
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 small container of Greek Yogurt (plain or vanilla...I use non fat)
- 1 Tablespoon of Skippy Natural Peanut Butter
- 1 Teaspoon of Honey
- 1 cup of crushed ice

Dump everything in your blender and blend it up!
That's it!
So easy!
It has a very creamy texture.
And, you can't taste the avocado.
**Sometimes when I make this smoothie, I will even throw in a few handfuls of Spinach/Kale and you can't taste that either!***
If you are looking for a healthy smoothie that packs a lot of flavor and protein, this is the smoothie for you!
It would be great to have for breakfast, lunch or a snack!
Enjoy!

  1. YUM! I'm definitely pinning this to try it later...Elyse isn't the greatest protein eater either, but I normally don't worry about it because she can down a sippy cup full of Whole Milk like it's nobody's business!

  2. I've been considering adding avocado to my smoothies, but I've been pretty nervous about it! Maybe I'll have to try it now that someone else has done the hard part, ha!
