Chocolate-Peanut Butter Smoothie

Pin It

So I’ve been going to the gym/yoga a lot lately and looking to feed my muscles well after doing so.  The other day I went to a hot class at YYoga and decided to hit Body Energy on Davie afterwards for one of their tasty smoothies.  I am a sucker for the chocolate monkey,using chocolate almond milk, minus chocolate syrup and adding Vega Sport Performance Protein – Recovery (Side note: Hello hot pic of Brendan Brazier in the shower!).  Well, let me tell you, this combination rocks, and I really do feel like it feed my muscles and replenishes my energy after a rigorous workout.  Try it at home for a fraction of the price!

Ingredients:

1 banana

1-1/2 cups unsweetened chocolate almond milk

1/2 cup peanut butter

1-2 tablespoons maple syrup

3-4 ice cubes

1 serving of Vega Sport Performance Protein or your favourite vegan protein

Method:

Blend until smooth and enjoy right after your yoga/gym/run or whatever you do to stay happy and healthy 🙂

  1. Yum! If you’re really into smoothies, you can also freeze your bananas while they are at the ripeness you like and stash in a container. They make the smoothie super frothy and cold. Just make sure you peel them first, and I always chop mine up so I don’t look like a perv if my friends look in my freezer.

  2. LOL Jen, always with the suggestive comments. 😉

    I was just reading about your falafel balls the other day…

  3. I’ve had a similar one that’s really good with almond butter instead of peanut butter, regular almond milk or vanilla and agave nectar instead of maple syrup

    This sounded delicious so I put everything into my recipe calculator just to see the nutritional value of this shake. Did you know there is over 1000 calories in this?? Also 68 grams of fat–the saturated kind. :-/
    On the plus side it has lots of protein and iron but it’s definitely not a healthy post-workout snack.

  5. Hello! I just came across this post when I googled “chocolate peanut butter vegan smoothie”. I have been concerned that I have not been eating enough protein lately, so I think this would be a good option! Do you know if you have to add the banana? Sadly, I really hate bananas. Can you even taste it in the finished product? Or is it okay to just leave it out? Thank you!!!

    • I think it would be fine without the banana. Perhaps less thick and creamy but still good. Maybe throw in a chopped apple to add some bulk? But yes Kim, a great way to add protein!
