Chunky Monkey Smoothie

chunkymonkeyheaderI’m not sure about the name of this. Does this sound appealing to you, or like you’re going to eat chopped monkey? In any case, I assure you, it’s entirely vegan, and delicious, and perhaps even a little bit healthy too…it’s something I like to chug down after a workout or when I’m craving a chocolate-peanut butter kick in my day. Which roughly equates to….every day. This bad boy recipe makes one serving, but, like all my smoothie recipes, there is a lot of ‘wiggle room’ to amp it up!

chunkymonkeybanYou will need:

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 tbsp. nut butter (peanut for me, obviously)
  • 3/4 cup milk of preference (I use soy)
  • 1 tbsp. cocoa or cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • a handful of ice cubes

Blend that shit. Drink and see into the great beyond of monkey-ness, and wonder how you would ever exist without chocolate, banana, or peanut butter.

    Do some research on soy milk Hun. I have been hearing that women shouldn’t be drinking soy milk.

      Yeah I heard that too, Janelle! I’ve started buying coconut milk instead. I have a few more soy to use up but think I’ll probably stay switched after they’re gone. What was it specifically about soy milk that was harmful?
