Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

a post-workout Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Banana Smoothie – peace. love. quinoa

peanut butter.
it’s what’s for breakfast.
or a little treat, after a workout.

I did not pre-meditate this smoothie, it kind of “just happened” …and I have a feeling it will “just happen” again…

Let me tell you more: Every time I have a banana that’s gotten too brown and soft for eating, I peel it, chop it up, and put it in the freezer. After a long, hot, sweaty run a few mornings ago, I was in need of something cold and nutritious. I remembered those bananas in my freezer and I must have had peanut butter on the mind. The chocolate idea came naturally to me PLUS I keep chocolate protein powders on hand (for situations like this, I always have cacao nibs, and I had recently purchased chocolate almond milk to drink as a “treat” – you know, satisfy my sweet tooth.
