If you’re like me, then you cannot go a day without eating chocolate in some way, shape or form.
Believe me I’ve tried and the result is usually an even stronger craving. Not that there is anything wrong with eating a little bit of chocolate everyday. In fact, research is revealing that a little everyday can do wonders for your health! (Click here for 11 reasons why chocolate is good for your health.)
This healthy chocolate peanut butter + banana smoothies are a great way to get all of the benefits and taste of chocolate into your body while satisfying any craving.
Perhaps the best part about this smoothie is the fact that I was able to get my husband to finally eat (well, technically drink) raw kale. It tasted so good, he didn’t even bother asking me what the green things were in it until it was all gone!
This smoothie is perfect for breakfast and will leave you feeling energized. I like to pair it with these Mixed Berry Breakfast Muffins. It also works great as an afternoon snack.
