A creamy and nutritious breakfast flavored with chocolate, peanut butter, and honey from www.followthecook.blogspot.com
- Put all of the ingredients except for the ice into a blender and whaz it up. Whaz -- i really wanted to use that particular word for some reason! Then add in the ice cubes, and blend until smooth. This is so simple you can even do it at 7am. I must preface these simple instructions with the fact that I have a wonderful blender. Thanks, mom! Gotta love all of the cool kitchen stuff you get when you get married. If your blender leaves a bit to be desired, just go slow and add the ice cubes one at a time through the hole in the lid. Eventually your smoothie will come together into a tasty, filling, and nutritional treat.
I was really impressed by this recipe, and it made for a nice chilly breakfast in 90 degree weather! Instead of just throwing everything in the blender, I put the sliced banana in with four ice cubes to puree it first so I wouldn't have slimy little bits of banana in my smoothie. Then, I added the rest of the ingredients and four more ice cubes and finished blending it. It tasted quite good and seemed surprisingly substantial for the ingredients used. I think all the ice was able to fool me into thinking it was more food than it really was, and it seemed quite a bit thicker than similar, more fattening banana chocolate peanut butter smoothies. Thanks!
I have made this a bazillion times. It is a great breakfast. I soak my oats in the milk when I get up, and drink it about an hour later. Also, I add a little flax meal to it. This is a permanent fixture in my breakfast menu!
