Avocado chocolate peanut butter smoothie is a creamy, healthy drink that tastes like a decadent milkshake! Your tastebuds won't believe this is actually a healthy smoothie recipe!
My daughter and I are exactly the same when it comes to our morning rituals. We need to do the same thing every morning or else we are thrown off and cranky the rest of the day.
We are particularly picky about what we eat in the morning (remember when I told you I ate muesli and toast every day for years?). She will only eat cereal, yogurt, or a smoothie.
N goes wild for a good smoothie. She jumps ups and down and starts yelling all over the room when she hears we are going to have smoothies for breakfast. More often than not, she will have a bigger glass than I do! Really, I don't blame her.
Lately, I've been on a bit of a smoothie binge because I love how surprisingly filling they are and the infinite number of flavor combinations there are.
One of our favorite smoothies these days is my avocado chocolate peanut butter smoothie. I bought a bag of avocados just so we can have this smoothie every day.
I love that this smoothie is so incredibly thick and creamy. It's really like having a milkshake. Plus thanks to the avocado and peanut butter, you stay full and satiated for hours on end. I am talking, you won't even crave a mid-morning snack in a couple of hours.
The chocolate also helps with that satisfied feeling because I mean, hello, you are having chocolate first thing in the morning! Truly, this avocado chocolate peanut butter smoothie is a work of art. And many of you agree with tons of reviews on pinterest!
One note I will give is that the amount of pure maple syrup you use depends on how ripe your bananas are and the type of cocoa powder you use.
The darker the cocoa powder the more pure maple syrup you may need to balance it out. I also recommend giving the smoothie a minute for the flavors to really develop before you start sipping.
I mean, it's good right away, but I always notice the peanut butter and chocolate are a lot more balanced after you wait a minute.
