Of course, I cannot forget to talk about the frozen banana because it definitely adds this creamy texture. Since you add frozen bananas you don’t need to add ice. I also used coconut milk because I would like to make a vegan smoothie. So, if you want to quit dairy, this coconut milk is a great substitute. Last, don’t forget to use a good quality peanut butter, because it is better for your health if it is 100% peanut butter, unsweetened, and no salt.
I hope you really give this recipe a try and enjoy it for breakfast, snack time, or even dessert because everything that has chocolate is considered a dessert too, right??!!
