Peanut Butter Dessert Smoothie

Healthy milkshake. That’s all that comes to mind when I drink this smoothie.

I called it a “dessert” smoothie because it’s the perfect way to satisfy a sweet craving after a light dinner or as an afternoon snack. I promise you will ask yourself “how is this healthy!?” It’s that good. Tastes like a frosty or milkshake, and yet it’s naturally sweetened, boasts healthy fats from coconut milk and protein from peanut butter.

Add protein powder and you’ve got yourself a tasty post-workout recovery drink.

I can’t get enough of coconut milk in my smoothies – it makes the creamiest addition to any concoction. Try it out and let me know what you think! Do you have a favourite of my smoothie recipes?

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp smooth natural peanut butter
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 4 dates
  • 1 ½ cups ice
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Optional: scoop of protein powder

Directions

Blend and enjoy. This is a great smoothie to make and drink after a workout if you add in the protein powder, although I can’t save it for any length of time – it’s too delicious!
