It’s been a while, but I’m back on a smoothie kick again =). Am I the only one that comes home from work starving? I guess I never really got over needing an after school/work snack, so I’ve started making myself a daily smoothie. Today it felt like a chocolate peanut butter banana kind of day. It was delicious – almost tasted like dessert even though the banana is the only source of sugar. The flavors are nicely balanced and compliment each other so well! Who doesn’t love peanut butter and banana together?? The peanut butter makes the smoothie very filling, easily tiding you over until supper (or lunch if you choose to make this for breakfast instead of a snack). And if your new year’s resolution has you on a diet, this would be a great healthy dessert option too. Enjoy!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
1 frozen banana
1 tbsp peanut butter (I used Peter Pan Honey Roasted)
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup crushed ice
1/4 cup skim milk

Place all ingredients in blender and pulse until smooth. Serves 1.

    looks great! Yes, I come home starving or stressed and it&#39;s so hard not to grab the first bag of potato chips that I see and have at it! I love peanut butter and I&#39;m definitely going to be trying this recipe!<br />
