Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Smoothie

Are you ready to make the best non-cheat meal drink that tastes like it should be full of guilt? Seriously this chocolate peanut butter green smoothie taste like a chocolate peanut butter shake but without the guilt.  Don’t worry about the “green” in this smoothie, you can’t even taste the spinach. Which is great because you get the nutrition without the spinach taste. (Even though I do love to eat spinach but sometimes I just want to feel like I’m indulging without the regret.)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Smoothie

I have a slight love of peanut butter. If I am craving something sweet there is a good chance that it has a peanut butter flavor. This smoothie is my way of curbing my sweet tooth cravings without having to deal with the guilt.  All you need is seven simple ingredients, a blender, and a hungry belly to make this guilt-free smoothie.

Start off with bananas. Two to be exact and the riper your bananas are the sweeter you smoothie will be. Slice your bananas and freeze them. Frozen banana add an amazingly smooth texture to this smoothies. I always buy and freeze a bunch of bananas at a time so that I can always have them on hand whenever I need them.

Let’s get making this guilt free chocolatey goodness. Seriously, it is that easy to make this smoothie. But aren’t all smoothies this easy. I have always wondered why people don’t make them more often. Or why they think they are hard to make. Smoothies are my favorite on the go meal to make when I need something easy to make and eat.

And end rant…

I seriously hope that you enjoy this guilt free chocolate peanut butter green smoothie. Coming up with new green smoothie recipe is so much fun. And this one has turned into one of my favorites.

  1. I love smoothie recipes! Especially when they can make me sneak more greens into my day haha…will have to give this one arty! Thanks for sharing it! 🙂

  2. I make a smoothie almost every day! It’s such an easy way to get in a lot of nutrition. I’m also a huge fan of adding greens to my smoothies ; ) I usually add a scoop of plant protein (without added sugar or artificial sweeteners and made with minimal ingredients) into my smoothies as well for an added protein boost.

  3. Get out?! I can have chocolate and peanut butter and still consider it a green smoothie? Definitely pinning for later.

    This recipe looks so good and I love that it’s both dairy and gluten free! I’m making this tomorrow for breakfast for sure!

  5. This recipe really sounds tasty (I’m not a huge fan of green smoothies (even though I know they are super healthy and probably tasty) will try the recipe (mainly because I love PB. <3 Thanks for sharing xxx

    This sounds so good! I keep meaning to try a smoothie, I think it would be a great way for the kids and I to get some extra veggies in. We might try this tonight! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Haha, Spinach always tend to go bad here. I bought some fresh ones to make a breakfast recipe yesterday but this smoothie recipe looks delish. And the fact that it does not tastes like spinach makes it more awesome. My hubby bought me a green smoothie a few weeks ago and I just threw it out recently while I was cleaning the fridge. One taste – and I just couldn’t!!

  8. Have you tried using the Peanut Butter powder (PBFit)? I wonder if it works well with your recipe! I know that it sounds odd to some to put greens in, but you’re right, can’t taste it!

  9. That looks so yummy I can’t right now! I love peanut butter so any recipe that includes it is a must read:)

    Love always,

  10. Yes!! I’m on such a smoothie kick right now. This last Sunday I made and froze a bunch of smoothie packs for the first time, and I’m in awe that it took me so long. Adding this to my list of recipes!!

  11. Honestly green smoothies are not my favourite. I just can’t get them down. But this recipe gives a nice twist on the general green smoothie ( I LOVE peanut butter). I will definitely try this!

  12. This smoothie looks wonderful. Is the spinach added simply for health reasons and nothing to do with taste? My husband was talking about making a smoothie tonight so I’m going to send this article on to him (swapping the honey for maple syrup) 💚

  13. Came here expecting a literal green colored smoothie – SO PUMPED that I can now hide my veggies in a way that doesn’t make me gag…peanutbutter is the best way to ‘cover up’ other flavors!

    This looks SO good! I love smoothies so I really need to try this – I love that it’s a mix of yummy chocolate and peanut butter but also is a green smoothie! So awesome!

  15. This sounds delicious!! That such a good idea to keep bananas in the freezer. Now every time I buy a bunch, I’m going to throw a few in the freezer. I love how simple this smoothie is, so I’m definitely going to try it out soon!

  16. I really hate banana especially the smell but I feel with the peanut butter honey and chocolate it would mask the banana. I may have to try this. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Oh man this looks so good! chocolate and peanut butter together are dangerous around me haha

    Totally trying this out!

    I’m not a peanut butter lover sadly- but this still sounds like a really good recipe! Do you have any suggestions for a peanut butter substitute?

  19. Melissa

    This recipe sounds great- but I’m not really a peanut butter fan. Do you have any peanut butter substitute suggestions?

  20. With the warmer weather here I’m starting to get more into smoothies and I must say I need this smoothie in my life ASAP. It seems delicious and I can’t wait to try it.

  21. This looks so good! And I also love the fact that it’s healthy! I have a huge dessert craving right now and I now know what I’ll be making in a few minutes 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! 🙂

  22. Oh my, this sounds absolutely amazing! I love smoothies, especially with peanut butter! I can’t wait to make this tomorrow for my lunch!

  23. I love peanut butter!! However, I’ve never snuck veggies into my smoothies. Maybe I need to start, since that would be a surefire way for me to get them daily!

  24. YUM! sounds like my kind of smoothie. i always sneak greens into my kids smoothies lol peanut butter is the best thing to cover up any veggie taste! LOL

  25. This looks so yum – I often eat (drink) a green smoothie but feel there’s not enough protein or fat to keep me full for long. This looks like a delicious solution to my problems!!
