Chocolate for Breakfast Smoothie
- 1 1/2 cups 2% milk
- 1 1/2 cups vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 cup chocolate protein powder
- 1/2 cup creamy seed or nut butter of choice
- 4 bananas, peeled and frozen
Place all ingredients into a blender carafe. Place the lid on the carafe and blend on high speed for one minute, or until creamy and smooth. Serve immediately.
Recipe notes: This recipe is easily scaled up or down, as needed. Smoothies may also be made in advance and frozen for later consumption. Simply pour the smoothie into a freezer safe container with a lid--leaving 1 inch of head space--and freeze. Frozen smoothies can double as ice packs in packed lunches, which should reach a slushy, soft serve consistency in about four hours.
