You’re gonna love this super creamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie, made with frozen bananas and Greek Yogurt. Enjoy this YUMMY drink any time of day!
I LOVE the flavor combination of chocolate and peanut butter, so making a breakfast smoothie using those ingredients was a fabulous idea! Yes… it WAS! This Super Creamy Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie was absolutely AMAZING!
In our home, we love making smoothies, and love to experiment and try different flavor combos! This chocolate peanut butter smoothie is extra creamy and thick!
Who Wants A Nice, CREAMY Smoothie?
It’s creamy, thanks to the addition of a frozen banana, cocoa powder, peanut butter, Greek vanilla yogurt (for protein), and a bit of milk.
I’m not kidding… this chocolate peanut butter smoothie is amazing and tastes like a creamy milkshake! Using a pre-frozen banana eliminates the need to add chunks of ice. Ice can water down the smoothie and if not blended fully, can leave ice chips in the smoothie!
The chocolate peanut butter smoothie recipe, as written, makes one 12 ounce smoothie or two 6 ounce servings.
How To Make A Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
Place a frozen medium banana, milk, Greek vanilla yogurt, peanut butter, and cocoa into a blender.
*Note: if you use PLAIN Greek yogurt, you might want to sweeten the smoothie up a bit with honey. Blend the ingredients until they become very smooth and thick.
Pour the finished smoothie into a tall glass (or 2, if splitting it).
Who Wants A Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie When It’s FREEZING Outside?
ME! I made this smoothie for breakfast on a morning when it was 36 degrees outside! Yep! To fancy up my smoothie I added a fancy umbrella straw! That way, my brain would think I was in a sunny warm and tropical location. Pretty smart thinking, right?
Mind over matter and no brain-freeze, right? This creamy chocolate peanut butter smoothie would be a great afternoon treat for the kids (divided into small serving sizes, of course)!
I used low-fat milk and light yogurt, so the total calorie count came in fairly low, which is not bad for a breakfast smoothie or snack drink. The recipe can easily be doubled, OR it can be divided into TWO or THREE smaller sized servings.
See how thick and creamy that chocolate smoothie is? YUM!
The chocolate peanut butter smoothie is really nice and thick. It tastes super creamy… and boy, is it GOOD! Hope you will give it a try! I think you will LOVE it!

I like to peel ripe bananas, cut them in half, and store them in re-sealable bags in my freezer. That way, it's very easy to grab a pre-frozen banana any time I need one for a smoothie!
*If using PLAIN Greek yogurt, you may want to add a bit of honey to help sweeten the smoothie.
