– 1 ripe banana– 1 cup milk (dairy or plant-based)– 2 tablespoons peanut butter– 1 tablespoon cocoa powder– 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional for added sweetness)– Ice cubes (optional)
Assemble all the ingredients on your kitchen counter: a ripe banana, milk of your choice, peanut butter, cocoa powder, honey or maple syrup (if desired), and ice cubes.
Peel the ripe banana and break it into a few chunks. This will make it easier to blend smoothly into the drink.
In a blender, combine the banana chunks, milk, peanut butter, and cocoa powder. If you have a sweet tooth, add honey or maple syrup at this stage. Blend on high speed until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Check the consistency of the smoothie. If you prefer a thicker texture, add a handful of ice cubes and blend again until well incorporated. Taste the smoothie and adjust sweetness if necessary by adding more honey or maple syrup.
Pour the Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie into a glass and savor the deliciousness. Garnish with a sprinkle of cocoa powder or a slice of banana for an extra touch. Grab a straw and relish this delightful blend of flavors that will surely satisfy your chocolate and peanut butter cravings.
