Recently I had the opportunity to combine two of the things that I love the most…
And peanut butter. Not just any peanut butter but the new Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter from Smart Balance. I received an email asking if I would be interested in sampling their new Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter and developing a recipe with it. Of course I responded yes to that!
I developed two recipes using the dark chocolate peanut butter and the team at Smart Balance chose this smoothie for me to share with you. It’s perfect timing because I’ve been receiving tons of requests lately for a “base” green smoothie recipe.
I kept this recipe very simple to highlight the chocolate peanut butter flavor and to keep the color green. If you’d like to mix it up you could definitely add berries or other fruits like and switch out the chocolate peanut butter for another variety of nut butter.
This smoothie is perfect for breakfast, an afternoon snack or post-workout recovery. Enjoy!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Smoothie

1 cup spinach
1 cup non-dairy or organic milk (almond, coconut, soy, skim, etc)
1 scoop protein powder
1 cup ice
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth and spinach is incorporated.
Yield: 1 smoothie
