Thick and Creamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Shake

/// September 13th, 2014

Luxuriously thick and creamy – this healthy chocolate and peanut butter breakfast shake tastes like dessert! Easily whipped up in minutes, this is sure to become a morning time favorite!  Thick and Creamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Shake There’s nothing I love more than an easy breakfast shake that could easily double as a decadent dessert. This thick and creamy chocolate peanut butter breakfast shake ——-> TOTAL BREAKFAST BABE. It’s loaded with all of the good things (protein packed peanut butter, sweet and natural honey, cocoa powder, almond milk, and frozen bananas) and tastes just like a morning milkshake. A healthy and delicious shake… Crazy, right?

Crazy Awesome!

Thick and Creamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Shake I used almond milk and peanut butter in this smoothie, but you could totally use cow’s milk or even almond butter if that’s what you’ve got in your fridge. So… options 😉

One note: If you’re watching those nasty little things called calories, using almond milk (unsweetened) is a great way to shave some off! A whole cup is only like 30 calories, and – in my opinion – is very tasty! One of my fabulous readers reported back that she made this with chocolate almond milk, and I have a feeling that would be world rocking as well!

Next time you’re craving a lil’ PB + Chocolate loving, give this decadent thick and creamy chocolate peanut butter breakfast shake a swirl. It only takes 30 seconds in the blender… and you’re going to like it-like it-love it. I promise. xoxo

Thick and Creamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Shake - you've got to try this decadent yet healthy chocolate shake! Perfect for a quick breakfast! I use my beloved Vitamix blender to make this smoothie and if you’re in the market for a new machine, I 100% recommend this one! It’s an investment, but worth every penny if you blend as much as I do 😉

      Hi Tanya. The recipe is for two large meal sized smoothies (I typically drink this as my breakfast since it’s so filling), so take that into account when calorie counting. I’ve never tried PB2, but it’s worth a try :)

    Excellent recipe! And I made it with a $20 (used) frappe maker I bought at a thrift store. Sorry, I just cannot believe that ANY blender (let alone a $600 one) can change the taste when the ingredients are the same. I really am not trying to be mean or rude, just my opinion.

      Hi Patricia! I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed this recipe :) Your frappe maker sounds amazing! No offense taken. My vitamix was a Christmas present and since I often get requests about the products I use, I include a link in certain posts so I don’t have to re-type what I use over and over again. I absolutely love finding affordable appliances and definitely agree that no matter what blender you use, it won’t change the taste 😉 xo

      Hi Joy. It will definitely be less sweet, but you could always make is sans honey, give it a taste, then add a little bit as needed 😉 I personally drink it without honey all the time, but I like less sweet drinks. Let me know how it turns out! xo

      Hi Lani. Using ice will definitely result in a grainer texture and less flavor, but it’s worth a shot! You may love it :) I would recommend starting with a 1/2 cup of ice, and adding more if needed.

      I don’t like bananas and I make a chocolate peanut butter smoothie with oat flour (ground oats) and ice which thickens it up, but also gives the smoothie more oomph to really stick with you. I also use chocolate protein powder instead of cocoa and can skip the honey. That way, it keeps me full until lunch!

    I found your recipe on Pinterest and decided to make it, even though I’ve never been crazy about smoothies. Until now! This is so satisfying, easy to make, and with simple ingredients that I always have on hand. Love that! Thanks for sharing.

    Hey, I just made this and it was so yummy! My 1yr old even drank it and she is super picky lol. Have you ever made these in advance and froze them for the next day or just put them in the fridge? Thought about doing those for make ahead…

      Hi Brittani. I don’t think it would store well as smoothies have a tendency to separate after a while. I’m so happy you and your daughter enjoyed this :) It’s one of my favorite healthier treats!

    I’m about to make this delicious smoothie, but realized I forgot to freeze my bananas. Could I still use 2 & just put in some ice or just use the 2 bananas & it will still be okay?

    Just tried this after finding it on Pinterest, it is AMAZING! I didn’t freeze my bananas ahead of time so used ice and it came out great. Going to freeze my bananas for tomorrow mornings breakfast. :)

    I made this with hemp milk instead and it was great!!! When I want a heavier consistency, I use cow’s milk. Both are divine!!!

    This was the first smoothie I’ve ever made and it was a hit! I doubled the recipe to make enough for myself and my three kiddos, but didn’t double the banana amount, mostly because I wasn’t thinking about doubling when I froze them. My son and I aren’t banana lovers, but he was the one that finished the left over amount off! Even though I could taste the bananas, the chocolate made it tolerable enough. I’m so happy to have found this and everyone agreed it’s a keeper. :)

    So, this smoothie shake has become a staple in our home. Thank you so much for this recipe! It is absolutely divine! I usually double it and add 2 TB of flax seed, and my kids gobble it up like crazy! Any time they want a treat, they beg for this shake. It makes me happy because it’s so much better than giving them ice cream or another unhealthy treat. I love it! (We’re actually drinking it this morning. :) )

    Btw, I also blog and would love if you’d stop by! :) http://www.andthismarinewife.com

    I added a bit of cinnamon to this recipe this morning and it tasted amazing, cinnamon is really good if you’re watching your weight, too. This recipe is awesome though, thanks for sharing!

    I made the shake with 1 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup spinach and 1/4 cup yogurt. Everything else was the same and it was delicious.
