Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothies

If you are anything like me, you hate to waste food.  Sometimes I end up getting way more fresh fruit at the grocery store than we can eat before it goes bad.  This is especially true with the bananas.  I have started peeling, slicing and freezing them while they are still super ripe yet not rotten.  It is really easy to do and gives you frozen banana chips to use in recipes!

This smoothie makes an amazing on-the-go breakfast…just blend and drink!  It is super healthy and chocked full of protein and potassium.  When using the frozen banana chips in this recipe, it gives the smoothie the consistency of a milk shake.  My kids love this ultra healthy snack!

 

Ingredients:

2 bananas – cut into chips and frozen (or about 1 1/2 – 2 cups if you keep the frozen banana chips on hand in the freezer)

6 oz Greek vanilla yogurt

1/3 cup peanut butter – creamy

1/3 cup low fat milk

spoonful of unsweetened cocoa powder

 

Just add the milk, yogurt, and peanut butter to the blender.  Add in the bananas and blend.

After it has been completely blended, add the spoonful of cocoa powder and use the mix button on the blender to blend it into the smoothie.

Serve immediately to have a cool refreshing breakfast, or pour into freezer pop molds and freeze for a frozen treat later!
