During the school year, I make these chocolate protein smoothies in the mornings and take them with me in a stainless steel tumbler.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Ingredients
- Greek yogurt
- Chia Seeds
- Cocoa Powder
- Peanut Butter
It’s probable that you have most or some of the ingredients in your pantry and fridge already. I’ve started keeping Chia seeds around because they have so many benefits and you don’t even notice them in smoothies, soups, or in yogurt bowls!
If you’re balking at the sight of spinach on the list, don’t! Spinach brings in a ton of vitamins and nutrients. Trust me, you won’t go back once you’ve tried it!
Peanut butter always makes me think of back-to-school as it was my sandwich of choice as a kid. If you’re on a peanut butter kick these days too, you’d probably like these Peanut Butter Muffins and Creamy Peanut Butter Apple Dip too.
