Peanut butter smoothies are one of my favorite things. I love to switch up the flavors of my peanut butter smoothies by adding strawberries or in this case cacao. This one is one of my favorites because there’s no better combo than peanut butter and chocolate. The peanut butter adds protein while the cacao is energizing. It feels like such a treat too because it’s a sweet breakfast but contains no added sweeteners!
This vegan smoothie is great any time of day! Breakfast, snack time, dessert, etc! You can also dress it up with some cacao nibs, banana slices and an extra drizzle of peanut butter if desired!
