    Scribbler515's Note:

    I love coffee but I have come to accept the fact that coffee just does not love me back (headaches, upset stomach, etc.) Sooo, this is the recipe I reach for when I need a healthy pick-me-up in the morning. It is peanut buttery, and slightly chocolatey. Enjoy.

      The chocolate and banana together was quite tasty, and I enjoyed the Smoothie a lot. I think it might have been a little more to my liking if I had used sweetened cocoa though The amount of peanut butter is just right for me, because it left a hint of it without overpowering the multitude of other lovely flavors that mesh so well as this recipe is written. I liked the suggestions of perhaps adding a little coffee, too. Maybe I'll try that next time. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Azriel31. Made for Spring 2012 Pick-A-Chef.

      I made this for me and the kiddies for an afternoon pick-me-up. I seem to have the same problem with coffee as you;(. This did help with the energy level, however, I still miss the coffee, LOL. It was very rich, thick, creamy and pretty tasty. I did increase the PB by atleast a tablespoon, used 1% milk and added a couple packets of splenda. I will probably make it again but omit the cocoa powder and increase the PB even more. We love PB, alot, in my house ;). I think that the cocoa powder made it a little bitter and the kids wouldn't miss it. A little honey instead of the splenda might be good also. Thanks for the recipe, it'll be great when the kids are craving milkshakes, but I don't want to give in to ice cream.
