a Post-Workout Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

chocolate.
bananas.
peanut butter.
coconut.
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 workout a few mornings ago, I was in need of something cold and nutritious. I remembered those bananas in my freezer and I also had peanut butter on my mind. The chocolate idea came naturally to me (duh) and luckily I keep chocolate protein powder on hand for situations like this. I recently purchased chocolate almond milk to drink as a “treat” – you know, satisfy my sweet tooth and it + cacao nibs made gave this smoothie “milkshake” vibes.
