The Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie is the perfect solution to even the biggest chocolate craving! 
The high amount of protein makes this a great choice for feeding your muscles after a work out. This smoothie is also a great solution for breakfast because it will jump start your metabolism and help you focus all day.
The pure cocoa included will provide an enormous amount of antioxidants and flavonoids to help your body, as well as a natural mood booster to help your sunny disposition.
The next time you begin to feel guilty for feeding that chocolate craving, make one of these and know that you are doing your body a huge favor!

Simply combine all ingredients in a standard blender and mix until creamy.
  • 5 ice cubes
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

If you are in the mood to switch it up a little, substitute almond butter or hazelnut butter for the peanut butter. It's your smoothie, make it your way!
