Post-Workout Treat: Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

This recipe is just a simple but audacious chocolate peanut butter smoothie.

Shona Vertue’s smoothie tips and tricks:

  1. Peel, slice and bag up bananas to freeze so that you can just whack them straight into your smoothie.
  2. Make sure your ice containers are always full; there’s nothing worse than a warm smoothie.
  3. Please make sure you choose nut butter that is made from sustainable palm oil or, better yet, is completely free from palm oil.
  4. In my recipes I prefer to avoid dairy so I would love you to try a milk alternative. Almond milk can irritate some people’s guts (like mine) so if that is the case, I would suggest you try switching it up with unsweetened oat or rice milk.
