Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
Prep time
Total time
This thick and rich shake is frequently requested in my household. Not only does it taste like a luscious dessert, but it also has a decent amount of potassium and protein for a pre- or post-activity boost.
Recipe type: Drinks
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 serving
  • 1 medium very ripe banana, sliced and frozen
  • ¾ cup dairy-free chocolate milk beverage (see Milk Beverage Note below)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter, to taste
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons cocoa powder, to taste
  • ½ cup ice
  1. Blend the banana and milk beverage together in your blender until smooth.
  2. Add the peanut butter and cocoa powder, adjusting the two flavors to your taste, and give it another blend.
  3. Add the ice and process until thick and creamy.
Milk Beverage Note: I do use a sweetened chocolate milk beverage in this recipe. If you use an unsweetened version, add your favorite sweetener, to taste. If you don't have chocolate available, substitute (sweetened) vanilla milk beverage and increase the cocoa powder to 1 to 2 tablespoons, to taste.

Chocolate Almond Option: For a more sophisticated shake, swap almond butter for the peanut butter, use chocolate almond milk, and optionally add ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon.

Protein Smoothie Option: Use an unsweetened plain or vanilla milk beverage, and add 1 to 2 tablespoons of dairy-free chocolate protein powder. Start with just 1 teaspoon cocoa powder, and add more to taste.
