Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

I’ve been drinking this smoothie every other day for about a week now. I can’t get over how good it is! It’s smooth, creamy, and PERFECTLY sweet. It feels like I’m eating dessert, but there’s so much goodness in it. I’ve switched it up by using different types of milk and nut butters. It tastes great with cashew or almond butter as well. You can also add frozen cauliflower or frozen avocado for even more creaminess! I hope you enjoy modifying this smoothie to fit your taste :)
