Chocolate-Peanut Butter Smoothie

Yum. This was seriously the best breakfast I’d had in a while. I used to have smoothies all the time, but in recent years I’ve fallen out of the smoothie habit. This was delicious – creamy and cold, refreshing after today’s run (4 miles, more Beethoven).

I did not take pictures because the cocoa powder-spinach combination made the smoothe an unappetizing green-gray color. Sans spinach, this is a beautiful smoothie. It’s delicious either way.

1 banana, chopped and frozen, and defrosted for about 5 minutes

1/4 cup soy milk

1-2 teaspoons cocoa powder

a splash of vanilla, optional

1 tablespoon peanut butter

dash of salt, if you’re using unsalted peanut butter

a generous handful of spinach, optional

Put all ingredients in a blender. Blend and enjoy. This is a ridiculously rich and creamy smoothie – almost like vegan soft-serve. Yum.
