A perfect mix of peanut butter and chocolate smoothie, where the dark, rich notes of the cocoa come through. A splash of vanilla extract and a ripe banana are enough to satisfy a not-so-sweet tooth.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Happiness=Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

For my fifth and final installment of the smoothie series, I offer up one of my absolute favourite combinations – chocolate and peanut butter. Seriously, this mood lifting duo can inject happiness on the dreariest of days.

In developing this recipe, I kept it simple and not too sweet. I wanted the dark, rich notes of the cocoa to come through. I found a splash of vanilla extract and using a ripe banana were enough to satisfy my not-so-sweet tooth.

Without further ado, here’s how you can blend up some happiness.


Happiness=Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Place all ingredients into blender.
  2. Whirl.
  3. Sweeten to your taste, if needed.
  4. Enjoy.

The hardest part about this blog post was choosing the right photo. I even asked my Facebook friends to vote. In the end, I made the executive decision. Here’s the other photo choice.

Which one do you like? Btw, a special thanks to my neighbour, Cindy, for letting me borrow her tall glass.
