I’ll tell you a little secret: I don’t eat breakfast every day. (Sorry Mom!)
But lately, I’ve been sneaking into the kitchen for a late-morning snack. I get out the blender and not-so-quietly whip up a smoothie. I love that smoothies are packed with nutrients but I don’t think they should taste like salad in a glass.
This Chocolate Peanut Butter Power Smoothie is my favorite smoothie recipe. I could drink it again and again. Yes, it has some odd ingredients, but I promise the end result is delicious! I do.
You’ll need a banana, milk, Greek yogurt, honey, a block of tofu*, a handful of spinach** or kale, a spoonful of chia seeds, a spoonful of cocoa powder and a scoop of peanut butter. You can eliminate any of the ingredients, or add others — like protein powder or milled flaxseed.
Once you’ve made it a few times (provided you can get past the ingredient list), you won’t need a recipe anymore! And you’ll probably be addicted to this smoothie like me. Get the recipe on Pretty Providence. // susannah
*Yes, I am totally for real on the tofu. It makes the smoothie so, well, smooth and silky!
**And yes, I am also for real about the spinach/kale. So nutritious, but I promise you can’t taste it at all!
