Do you love chocolate peanut butter cups? I know I sure do!
Ever since I was a child, they've been my favorite guilty pleasure. But now that I’m all grown up and a health coach, I know that they aren’t exactly good for me. Bummer.
I created this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie to cure my cravings for my beloved childhood favorite — and I know it will help cure your cravings too. (Kind of like how my 3-Ingredient Cookie Dough Bites will cure your cravings for a chocolate chip cookie!)
Plus, this smoothie is actually a really healthy green smoothie in disguise. With all of the vitamins and nutrients it contains, like vitamin K, vitamin A, and iron, the spinach will help give you a boost in energy. The banana provides you with your daily potassium needs and helps balance your blood sugar, while the cacao gives you a dose of magnesium, which helps reduce inflammation. And lets not forget the peanut butter, which provides the protein and healthy fats, both of which are critical in weight management.
Next time you're craving a chocolate peanut butter cup, or are looking to spice up your green smoothie, give this recipe a try!
