Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Tips
The chocolate peanut butter smoothie is one of my favorites. I find it so creamy, delicious, and healthy. There are so many ways to make different variations of this smoothie.
- If you prefer a stronger peanut butter taste, you can add more peanut butter.
- And if you prefer a less sweet smoothie, you can switch for a Medjool date or just leave out the honey.
- You can also add more milk to get a thinner smoothie consistency.
- Still, you can switch from banana to other fruits like blueberries or pineapple chunks.
- And while this smoothie is protein-packed, you can still add protein powder. I recommend going with cocoa powder or vanilla protein powder to keep the chocolate peanut butter flavor consistent.
