This recipe doesn’t need much introduction (or direction). It has been my go-to smoothie recipe for the past year or so now, I simply can’t get enough!
How can you possibly go wrong with chocolate, peanut butter and bananas? Of course if you (or someone in your household) has a peanut allergy you can simply leave the peanut butter out or you can replace it with a splash of vanilla extract for a flavour boost.
I buy bananas in bulk knowing we can’t possibly eat them all before they turn brown. When I start to see those amazing little spots form, I peel and slice the bananas and freeze them for my smoothies. I used to toss my overripe bananas into the freezer with the peels on which was a huge mistake! Working with whole frozen bananas is awkward and messy; instead try peeling and slicing before you freeze.
Frozen bananas add an amazingly creamy texture when blended, similar to a soft serve ice cream. It honestly tastes more like a shake than a smoothie. Don’t take my word for it, try it yourself!
