The decadent combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and banana comes together in this healthy and protein-packed smoothie.

Recipe type: Smoothie, Snack, Breakfast, Dessert
1 6 oz. container Chobani 2% Banana Greek yogurt, frozen and cut or broken into chunks (see Note)
1 c milk (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
1 T peanut butter
1 T cocoa powder
Optional: sugar, honey, Stevia, or sweetener of choice, to taste
Combine frozen yogurt chunks, milk, peanut butter, and cocoa powder in a blender, and blend until smooth.
Add optional sweetener, if desired.
Pour into a glass and serve.
I tried three methods of freezing the Chobani: Freeze the entire cup, then pop it out and use a large, sharp knife to cut it into chunks. Empty the cup into a plastic bap, pat it flat, freeze, then cut it into chunks. Stir the yogurt, then pour into an ice cube tray. Once frozen, pop out the cubes. All three methods worked well, but the ice cube tray was the easiest (and safest!).
