Chocolate Peanut Butter (Secret Ingredient) Breakfast Smoothie

Chocolate peanut butter breakfast smoothie

If you like the chocolate peanut butter combo (really, is there anyone out there who doesn’t?) please give this smoothie a try! It’s nutritionally balanced to provide the perfect combination of protein, fiber, and healthy fats to keep you feeling satisfied all morning long. The secret ingredient in here is steamed cooled cauliflower. Before you judge, just know that you can’t taste it AT ALL, yet it lends a creaminess and a full serving of veggies to start your morning.

The unsweetened cocoa powder and cacao nibs add rich chocolate flavor and antioxidant compounds called flavanols, while frozen bananas sweeten and thicken it up, while also adding a healthy dose of potassium, making it perfect for a post-workout recovery breakfast.

You can also use 1/2 a serving for a healthy post-workout snack.

If you try it, let us know what you think in the comments and tag your pics on Instagram with #cjnutrition.

Enjoy!

    I have tried the chocolate smoothie and it is delicious and there is no way that you would ever know that it contains cauliflower if someone didn’t tell you.
