Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Smoothies are a great healthy snack for when you are on-the-go. They can also be a meal replacement, in a pinch, if you are running behind schedule. You will see in this recipe that you can add protein powder if you want it to be more of a meal replacement.

The flavor profile of this smoothie is truly decadent! Rich chocolate, sweet banana, and creamy peanut butter create this frosty summer delight.
