Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Yay chocolate.

It has been a busy last few months. Wasn’t it January a couple of weeks ago? Was Easter yesterday? No February post, my bad. Wow.

It’s April.

That means state testing and finals are just around the corner. I took one state test already, the writing portion.

It was awful.

Anyway, time to talk about this smoothie. Quick, easy, and pretty healthy. I use Silk chocolate almond milk. That stuff is the bomb. I wonder who came up with the idea of almond milk. Who would pick up a small, hard nut and think, “Wow, this would make a delicious drink!” Pure genius…   Back to the smoothie! Tastes like a chocolate milkshake. But a banana sneaked in. And no chocolate ice cream. Not actually a milkshake, but tastes darn close. This smoothie makes a perfect post workout snack, and has been fueling me after track practice for the last couple of days.

I strongly recommend this smoothie to anyone who loves chocolate and peanut butter.If you don’t like peanut butter, just take it out. Be that way. Oh, fun fact: I used to hate peanut butter. Wouldn’t touch the stuff.

Something was wrong with me.

Enough small-talk. Time for a chocolate smoothie.
