Peanut Butter + Cocoa Breakfast Smoothie

Course: Breakfast
Keyword: breakfast, easy breakfast, healthy breakfast, high protein breakfast, peanut butter, smoothie
Servings: 1
Author: Mary


  • 1 single serving container plain or vanilla greek yogurt or dairy free yogurt
  • 2/3 cup any milk or milk substitute of your choice
  • 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 3 tsp pure cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp ground flax
  • 1 tsp cocoa nibs optional but great addition
  • 1 frozen banana cut in chunks


  • Add all ingredients to a blender cup, give it a few shakes to mix together.
  • Process in blender until smooth and frothy.
  • Pour into a glass, grab a straw and enjoy!


*you can use a fresh, well done banana of course, however a frozen banana gives smoothies a much better texture and has the added benefit of making it cold.
*tip: if you have well done bananas sitting on your counter, peel them and cut them into 4 pieces, then freeze in a container and have them ready to use for your smoothies 

I know you’ve heard this one before…
“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”
We know, we get it, but unfortunately it’s not always easy to eat the right things, to fuel up and start the day feeling energized.
I mean, there’s coffee, of course.

Oh, coffee you know I love thee…but, sadly you are not enough!

The Solution is a smoothie
