Made with cocoa powder and almond butter, this smoothie is thick, creamy and protein-packed.
While my youngest is on a major oatmeal kick, my oldest son asks for a smoothie every single morning. Lucky for him, I’m a bit of an expert in that area.
For a chocolatey twist on breakfast, I love combining cocoa powder with almond butter and Greek yogurt to create a thick and creamy smoothie no toddler can resist. We used Justin’s maple almond butter but regular almond butter or peanut butter would work too.
Since my boys aren’t used to super sweet foods, I always use unsweetened plain Greek or Smooth & Creamy yogurt but if your family prefers vanilla, be my guest!
For an even creamier, thicker smoothie I like to use frozen bananas but if you don’t have any in the freezer, just add extra ice. Whatever you do, just make this smoothie ASAP. Your family will thank me.
Your straw is waiting.
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and puree until smooth. Add ice until you've reached desired consistency.
