Skinny Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Shake

When I’m craving something sweet, I reach for my blender. I love whirring up a thick smoothie or healthy shake to appease my sweet tooth. Remember the dark chocolate peanut butter I made a few weeks ago? Well, I had this genius idea to throw a few scoops into the blender with some frozen bananas and vanilla almond milk. The result is a thick, peanut-buttery, uber chocolatey shake.

Did I mention it’s healthy? You can have your shake and drink it, too. Sold!

I made this shake using frozen bananas, thick Greek yogurt, creamy peanut butter, cocoa powder, and vanilla almond milk. To sweeten it up a bit, I added a touch of honey.

What? Where’s the ice cream, you ask. There is none. This is an ice cream-less shake. No ice cream means less calories, which means more creamy goodness in my belly. Yeah, that’s what I like to hear. You get banana, peanut butter, and chocolate all in one glass, and it’s oh so deliciously good for you.

This shake is extremely thick. Like, suck-until-your-brain-hurts thick. Turn-it-upside-down thick. Can’t-wait-any-longer-so-you-microwave-it thick. Thick! I make skinny shakes so often that I keep my freezer stocked with frozen bananas. To freeze your bananas:

  1. Peel and chop your bananas.
  2. Place them on a cookie sheet in a single layer.
  3. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer and allow the bananas to freeze completely, about 2 hours.
  4. Transfer your perfectly frozen banana chunks to a freezer bag and store for future use.

Stock your freezer and prepare for a skinny chocolate peanut butter banana shake addiction.

***Update: Since I received several emails and comments asking how many calories this shake contains, I decided to plug the ingredients into my calorie calculator. One 12-ounce shake is approximately 325 calories.
