If you wake up with a morning sweet tooth, this smoothie is for you. This chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie is thick and creamy like ice cream and tastes absolutely delicious!

Smoothies make a great filling breakfast or something sweet for your post workout fuel.

My kids love this smoothie as a bedtime snack. It’s full of healthy fats and protein and is great for filling up their bellies before they go to sleep!

This recipe is inspired by my peanut butter banana smoothie, but with cocoa powder and mini chocolate chips throw in for a delicious chocolate twist.

ingredients to make a chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie

How to make it

Step 1: Add the frozen banana chunks, peanut butter, greek yogurt, milk, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, honey, and ice to a high powered blender.

Step 2: Blend until smooth and pour into glasses. Serve immediately, and garnish with mini chocolate chips or whatever you want!

Recipe Tip

If you do not have a high speed blender, you can leave out the ice and then add to taste once the smoothie is blended. I like my smoothies super thick (like ice cream!), but you can also use less ice to make it less thick.

You could also add in chocolate flavored protein powder to add even more protein, if this is going to be a post workout smoothie for you.

Another way to mix things up is to try this as a chocolate smoothie bowl! Some delicious toppings would be granola, chia seeds, bananas, or your favorite nuts. 

I always keep bananas in the freezer for smoothie recipes just like this one. 

Freezing bananas

To freeze bananas, you want very ripe bananas that have spots on them. Simply peel the banana, break into chunks with your hands, and add to a ziplock bag in the freezer for quick smoothie making. 

Not only do they add ice cream like thickness, but bananas are also a great way to add a little natural sweetener to a recipe! The more ripe the banana, the more natural sweetness it will have.

What kind of yogurt is best in a chocolate smoothie?

This recipe calls for unsweetened greek yogurt which is a great way to add protein and flavor without any added sugar.

Vanilla flavored greek yogurt would also be delicious. If you decide to use a yogurt with sweetener already in it, simply omit the honey from this recipe or it will be too sweet.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

By: Joy Shull
This easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie is a great breakfast or snack when you're craving something sweet!
Prep: 5 minutes
Total: 5 minutes
Servings: 2

Ingredients 

  • 2 cups frozen banana chunks
  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter*
  • 2 tablespoons plain unsweetened greek yogurt
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 cup ice, see notes

Instructions 

  • Add the frozen banana, peanut butter, greek yogurt, almond milk, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, honey, and ice to a high speed blender and blend until smooth
  • Pour into glasses and enjoy immediately!

Notes

  1. I use unsweetened peanut butter for this recipe and the only ingredients should be peanuts + salt. If your peanut butter has sweetener in it, you may want to omit the honey
  2. I prefer my smoothies to be super thick consistency, so I added ice to make it extra thick. For a thinner drink, you can leave out the ice.
  3. To make this dairy free, use a dairy free yogurt in place of the greek yogurt and make sure to use dairy free chocolate chips
