When it comes to breakfast I tend to eat the same thing for months. Oatmeal, cereal, bagels, eggs, waffles, smoothies… whatever it is… I eat it and pretty much only it for months. And then suddenly I wake up one morning and I absolutely do not want it anymore. So I just switch to the next thing in my rotation. For the past two months, I have been on a smoothie kick. Specifically a chocolate, peanut butter smoothie kick. YUM!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
-1 frozen banana
-3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
-1 carton Oikos Triple Zero Greek Vanilla Yogurt (not a sponsored post – this is just my favorite yogurt! 15 grams of protein, no added sugar or artificial sweeteners!)
-1 tbsp peanut butter
-2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
-drizzle of honey (maybe a teaspoon’s worth? probably less)
Put all ingredients in blender and then blend until smooth.
Pro Tip: You can make this with a regular banana, but it is even better with a frozen banana! And the more ripe the banana, the more sweet. So since I make this every morning, I currently keep a Ziplock in the freezer just for my daily frozen banana (broken into chunks before freezing). I put it in the blender and then replace it with the next ripest banana on the bunch so I’ll have a frozen one for the next day.
You guys, this packs 23 grams of protein into one shake. Which is an awesome start to my morning. It definitely keeps me full longer than some of my other favorite breakfasts have so I’m glad that this has become a favorite of mine. At least for now, until a month or two from now when I wake up one day and I’m suddenly over it. I stay on breakfast kicks for approximately 3-6 months so we’ll see how long this one lasts. I’m crossing my fingers for it to stick around! 🙂
Do you eat the same thing for breakfast every day?
Are you a smoothie person?
