Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie a decadent and creamy treat that tastes like a shake but is actually healthy. This classic combo could fool anyone.

The dates add a caramel flavor while the peanut butter and cocoa add that classic flavor combination many love. I myself and not the biggest chocolate lover and even I couldn’t get enough!

This smoothie is simple to make with 5-ingredients and comes together in just 5 minutes. Perfect for a quick breakfast or snack. My little guy loves this smoothie and doesn’t want to share every time I make it.

I know you will love it just as much as we do!

Ingredient Notes:

  • Frozen Bananas – I peel, break in half and freeze bananas in a freezer safe bag. I always have these on hand for smoothies.
  • Dates – You could buy pitted or unpitted just make sure to take the pits out. You will want to use soft dates to help the blending process along.
  • Peanut Butter – Heaping means rounded so basically a big tablespoon vs. leveling it off. I use a natural unsweetened and unsalted peanut butter.
  • Cocoa Powder – Any brand will work just make sure it is unsweetened.
  • Almond Milk – Really any plant milk will work. I generally use an unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

Blend until smooth and creamy. If you do not have a high powdered blender you may need to add a bit more almond milk to get the desired consistency.

Can I Add A Different Nut Butter?

Of course! Peanut Butter is my favorite flavor in this smoothie however if you do not have any on hand or have an allergy any other nut butter you prefer will work. Just make sure to use a creamy nut butter. Something like almond butter would be great.

How Long Do Smoothies Last In the Fridge?

You can store a smoothie in the refrigerator if needed for 1-2 days. However, the smoothie will not be as thick and creamy in texture.

Can You Freeze A Smoothie?

Yes, you can freeze a smoothie for up to three months. Make sure to store in an airtight container. When you are ready to drink the smoothie allow it to defrost at room temperature mixing it every now and then until it is your desired consistency. I have done this before and it works fairly well. I would recommend freezing a smoothie vs. storing one in the fridge.
