Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie recipe

Hi everyone!

Happy almost Halloween!  I have a bit of a confession to make.  I’m not a big fan of Halloween… I never have been.  I’m going to sound like a big Halloween scrooge here, but I don’t really like costumes, being scared or anything involving creepy face makeup.  I KNOW.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to sit home alone and pout, but in general it’s not my thing.  I will be dressing up my dogs and getting a good laugh about it.  Does that count as celebrating?

Apathy for Halloween doesn’t stop me from enjoying some treats.  One of my all-time favorites is a peanut butter cup.  You just can’t go wrong with the chocolate and peanut butter combination.  Those were always the first to go in my Halloween candy bag growing up. And in honor of living in balance I think you should have a couple of these treats on the big day.

But for all the rest of the days, how about a Peanut Butter Cup inspired healthy smoothie!??

Believe it or not this is actually pretty healthy guys.  I’d venture to say you could have this several times the week of Halloween and be no worse for the wear.

In fact… I’ll wait while you start the blender.

The base for the smoothie is frozen bananas (yes, AGAIN… but it WORKS,) but with the chocolate and peanut butter powder in it, you don’t even taste it.  It really just turns into a neutral base.

I normally don’t like adding just plain ice to my smoothies, but this one calls for it because it just needs a little extra bulk without adding more calories.  Just consider it a little additional hydration in the off chance you overdue it on the big day. 😉

The finished product is perfectly festive this time of year, but would honestly make a tasty smoothie any day.

I mean really.. is it ever a bad day to have chocolate and  peanut butter????

I didn’t think soooo.  Enjoy!

    Peanut butter and chocolate are basically my two favorite foods in the world, and with bananas and Greek yogurt, too? I am ALL OVER this! 🙂

    It’s weird, I love Halloween but I don’t like scary movies or putting really creepy makeup on my face either…I type this as I am wearing black lipstick to celebrate today lol (but that’s all I have on my face).

    You had me at peanut butter! I love anything peanut butter and can’t wait to try this!

    Thanks so much for linking up with us for Healthy Vegan Fridays! I’m Pinning and sharing!

    I’m burning a Pumpkin Crunch Pie scented wax tart that my friend made right now and it smells amazing but is also making me crave all the desserts! I love the sound of this! <3 I need to go get some bananas!

    As a Halloween fanatic – it totally counts if you dress up your pups. Especially if you share pictures with us =D
    I’m seriously drooling over your smoothie right now. I will definitely be making it (maybe even this morning haha!), but I have a feeling it will not look nearly as pretty as yours 😉

    I totally agree with Blane! We have a Halloween party on Saturday, and I would love to just stay home and eat candy with Ridley and Zoe… Unless they are going to be giving these out, lol
