Healthy Reese’s Smoothie

I don’t know what it is. I’m not much of a dinner person. Sometimes, if I have a larger breakfast and lunch, plus snacks I will just have a smoothie for dinner.

I rationalize this because I’m still receiving plenty of healthy nutrients. Carbs and potassium from the banana, protein and healthy fat from the peanut butter, fiber and healthy fat from the Chia seeds, protein from the Greek yogurt and the protein powder. Pretty balanced. As long as I had some veggies earlier in the day I’m good to go.

Plus, since I don’t feel stuffed from eating too much I sleep much better. Win, win.

If you are a dinner person, this smoothie is perfect for a snack or following a workout. Or curb your chocolate craving the healthy way ;).

  5. Where do I get chia seeds? I’ve never seen them at the market. Do I have to go to a health food store to get protein powder? I live in a small town and we don’t have one.

  7. I’ve seen a lot of yummy looking smoothie recipes but one of the ingredients is banana. I suffer from migraines and was told by my doctor that bananas are a trigger food and not to eat them at all. Any other ideas what I could put in the smoothie besides bananas?

    • Hi Beth! There are two things you can try- and it might be a bit of trail and error to find the right consistency and figure out what works well with your taste buds ;). Try 1/4 cup cashews, or 1/4-1/2 cup of chickpeas. Both will take on the chocolate flavor, but bananas add a little sweetness so you might want to add a few drops of stevia or chocolate almond milk… Let me know!
