I have to share some yumminess with you today.

I’ve been running and trying to get healthier all around for over a year now. Throughout that journey, I’ve been trying to replace some indulgent treats with healthier versions, as well as adding more protein and reducing the use of processed sugar. I don’t always get it right, but I just keep trying and sometimes I find gem like this one.

This smoothie combines some of my very favorite things – chocolate, nuts, and banana – and it is very easily adaptable as well! I always keep frozen bananas on hand so I’m ready to make this…

Easy Nutty Smoothie

Easy, Nutty Smoothie

Ingredients

1 cup milk – skim milk, almond milk, coconut milk – I’ve tried them all and they’ve all tasted great!

1 frozen banana

2 tsp cocoa powder

2 TBSP almonds OR PB2The almonds will give a little more texture to the smoothie. The PB2 – powdered peanut butter with very low fat and no sugar added – gives more flavor than the almonds! I alternate what nut flavor I use and like them equally! You could also use Chocolate PB2 for extra chocolate flavor!

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Here is the nutrition information for the way I made it this morning {skim milk & PB2}, in case you’re interested!
