Protein power smoothie (Recipe Redux)

This month’s Recipe Redux theme is “Favorite Chocolate Matches,” and bloggers were asked to create a recipe highlighting their favorite chocolate pairings. I decided to go the tried-but-true route with a delicious and satisfying chocolate, peanut butter, and banana combination.



I’ve been loving this Protein Power Smoothie for quite some time now. It was inspired by my husband’s love for Jamba Juice’s Peanut Butter Moo’d smoothie, and it has powered many mornings and post-workout needs. It’s silky smooth, thickened by the flax meal, and has balanced ratios of it’s three star ingredients: chocolate, banana, and peanut butter. One serving (about 8 ounces) contains a filling 15 grams of protein to get your day started.
