One of the better combinations of foods are Peanut Butter and Chocolate. This peanut butter smoothie takes full advantage of both. The result is a very satisfying mix that provides a lot of energy to get through the day. This would also be a good choice for a mid day meal.
Its also easy to turn this peanut butter smoothie recipe into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
