Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons flax seeds ground
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder unsweetened
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt dairy or non-dairy
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 cup of ice to taste
  • Sweetener to taste (optional) - I use Swerve

Instructions

  • Add milk, flax seeds, cocoa powder, vanilla yogurt and peanut butter to your blender.
  •  Process until smooth. 
  • Add ice and sweetener to taste and process again. Serve immediately.

Notes

Note: If you are new incorporating flax seeds in your diet, I recommend you start slow. Try a teaspoon per serving.

Variations:

  • Try adding in a frozen banana or a cup of frozen strawberries.
  • I've made this Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie with cocoa powder, but you could also use 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup.
  • If you would like to reduce the fat, make this Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie with PB2.  I would use 2 tablespoons.
