Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie

This creamy, vegan smoothie is packed with nutty peanut butter, dark cocoa powder, crunchy chia seeds, and fresh bananas. If bananas aren’t your cup of tea, think twice about omitting them since they add natural sweetness to the smoothie, which means no need for additional sweetener. Also, the dark cocoa powder adds an intense, rich chocolate flavour which completely overshadows the flavour of the banana.

Smoothies are super easy to make and are a great way to sneak in extra protein into your meals, especially if you follow a mainly vegetarian or vegan diet. Enjoy this delicious smoothie as an on-the-go breakfast, midday snack, or an indulgent after-dinner treat!

    Chocolate and Peanut Butter is my favorite combination!! I need to try this smoothie recipe out would be much better then the powder ones.

  • this is such a delicious + healthy protein smoothie! i hope i can try this soon!

  • What a yummy recipe packed with protein. Something I have been looking forward to with my kids.

  • This sounds so delicious and healthy. I have all the ingredients right at homee.

  • I have so got to try this. My craving for chocolate would be satisfied. I don’t get it all the time, but when I do…. Anyway, chia seeds huh… oh what’s that I see cheesecake too and pudding… okay later… thanks for sharing. weeeeeeeee I am definitely going to pin these recipes.

  • Out of all the smoothies that I have made – peanut butter has never been an ingredient in any of them. I like the flavor combination of this one though.

  • I have a big bag of chia seeds sitting around that I haven’t done anything with. This would be the perfect reason to use them… not for the chocolate or peanut butter, just for the chia seeds of course 😉

  • That sounds so delicious right now! I’m on a Juice Fast currently but really want to make this soon.

  • Rebecca Swenor 4 years ago

    This sounds so delicious. I love dark chocolate and peanut butter so this sounds and looks like something I would love to try for sure. Thanks for sharing.

  • Sounds exactly like my kind of smoothie, I love peanut butter and I love chocolate so win-win for me

  • Jennifer Stewart 4 years ago

    I love me a good smoothie in the morning because I can make it and drink on the go. I am not a huge fan of peanut butter but I am just going to switch with my coconut almond butter. Thanks for the recipe!

  • Chocolate Peanut Butter smoothies are one of my favorite smoothies. This recipe looks delicious! My daughter would enjoy it too.

  • I’ve never heard of a Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie but boy does it look good! I’ll definitely have to try this recipe soon <3

  • Ourfamilyworld 4 years ago

    This looks soo good. My kids would be thrilled to help me make it and mostly drink it.

  • Megan Elford 4 years ago

    Oh, that looks SO delicious! With chocolate and peanut butter, my kids might even drink it!

  • mail4rosey 4 years ago

    That is a great way to sneak in protein. I’m not a meat eater, so I’m always looking for good ways to amp up the protein intake.

  • I will definitely have to try this. Yes, I’ll share with the toddler, I suppose.

  • This looks so good! My little one is a ball of energy and this will be a good way to pack in some healthy goodness when she wants to a snack!

  • I’m sure this tastes wonderful, I think most everyone loves chocolate and peanut butter together.

  • Oh yummy chocolate and peanut butter are two of my favorite tastes. What a creative idea to add chia seeds to your yummy tasting protein smoothie.

  • I need to start using chia seeds more. I bet it would be a great addition to my morning smoothie.

  • Penny @ pennyspassion.blogspot 4 years ago

    Boy — this looks really good. Lots of great ingredients packed into this one.

  • michele d 4 years ago

    This looks jammed packed with protein. I love it! This is something that I would love to try.

  • Robin Rue 4 years ago

    Chocolate and peanut butter is pretty much the best combination in the whole world. This sounds awesome.

  • Looks like a lot of protein is packed into this recipe! I think it also looks as healthy as can be and I would like to try it today!

  • Fi Ni Neachtain 4 years ago

    Oh how delicious does this sound! I’m on a protein kick at the moment and this would be a great sweet treat to add to the mix.

  • I bought Chia seeds and have been struggling to use them.. this looks so yummy! I’m going to try to make this drink.

  • Do the Chia seeds make it too thick? I used to put them in my shakes and found they could kind of be a nuisance.

    • They do thicken the smoothie somewhat, especially if you drink it the day after. I like that pudding sort of consistency. Sometimes, I only garnish the smoothie with the chia seeds…I like the added crunch!

  • Kristen 4 years ago

    yum. I bet the peanut butter makes this taste delish!

  • We all could use protein here! Plus it is super delicious too!

  • Jeanine 4 years ago

    Yum! This looks and sounds so good! Would love to try this. Been trying different types of smoothies the past few days and this sounds amazing!

  • Roaming Family 4 years ago

    I love the Chocolate Peanut Butter combination. And smoothies are one of my FAVORITE snacks/meals! SO good!

  • Lynda Self 4 years ago

    Um, yum! It all sounds like a winning combination to me. I think it would make a great breakfast smoothie.

  • Now this is a seriously sweet (as in cool… and sweet, I guess) smoothie! You can’t really go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate.

  • This looks great. I’ve been doing protein shakes lately because I know I don’t get enough in my regular diet, even though I try.

    • I KNOW I don’t get enough protein…I don’t eat meat! I do eat a lot of lentils and legumes but I definitely need to find ways to add more protein to my diet!

  • Smoothies and I don’t get along to often. Mine never come out right but this one has chocolate so I gotta try it.

    • I think it depends on your expectations…I use a regular food processor so I never get that same creamy, smooth consistency that you would get with a Vitamix. As far as adding veggies, I only add spinach because other greens such as kale don’t process very well. I need to invest in a Vitamix!

  • What a great recipe and pictures! I love your addition of chia seeds – I have never tried this type of a recipe before, but you have convinced me to try it – I think it will be great and refreshing!

  • Carrie Beth Abramson 4 years ago

    I was literally just talking to someone how I needed to find a different and new protein shake, This looks so delicious. I can’t wait to use this recipe!

    • Awesome! I actually don’t love the taste of protein powder however, if you’re used to the flavour you could definitely add more in this recipe.

  • Looks and sounds really good – I have all of the ingredients except the chia seeds – I’ll buy some because I’d like to try it with that! Thank you 🙂

  • Tanj from A Travelogue 4 years ago

    Looks delish! I need this recipe for the summer heat!

  • This sounds as good as I can imagine it tasting! I’ve been looking for more way to incorporate flax and chia seeds into my family’s diet – this sounds perfect! 😀

  • Michele 4 years ago

    I would have to forget the bananas–I am allergic to them. I guess I would just have to add a bit more sweetener!! This does sound delicious.

    • Allergic to bananas? I’ve never heard of that! You could substitute with avocado-it would definitely add creaminess to the smoothie.

      • Michele 4 years ago

        That sounds like an excellent suggestion! Yes I am actually allergic to bananas–I found out when I was near some banana plants–at least now I know why I always got a stomach ache when I ate one!

  • monica 4 years ago

    Lisa this looks so great! I stopped making smoothies..you have me interested again. 🙂

    • I only make them when the warm weather hits for some reason, lol! However, I really want to get into them more…all I need to do is bite the bullet and buy myself a Vitamix!!!

  • Joyful Gifts by Julie 4 years ago

    Funny I just re-started a meal plan that has smoothies. This is a great idea to make it even more healthy. thanks!

    • What a coincidence, lol! Actually, I’ve been getting into smoothies too lately…it’s all about the weather! I don’t really care for them during the winter!

  • Now that’s a smoothie! I don’t usually drink smoothies, but this one is going to have to go into my routine.

  • Dawn 4 years ago

    That sounds delicious! I love a good smoothie, and this is certainly a good one!
