Low(er) Carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

A while back I posted a great recipe for a chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie. It however isn’t very low carb (30 carbs per serving). I’ve since been playing around with the recipe and have been able to make a low(er) carb chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie! It’s the same great smoothie with HALF the carbs!

A great addition to this recipe is collagen peptides. It delivers lots of protein, supports skin health and rejuvenation, helps balance hormones, supports bone & joint health, and helps with digestions. The brand I personally buy is vital proteins collagen peptides.

Low(er) Carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Ingredients

  • ½ Banana
  • ¼ cup spinach
  • one heaping spoonful of peanut butter or almond butter (about 2 TBSP)
  • one heaping spoonful of unsweetened cocoa powder (about 2 TBSP)
  • 1 cup unsweetened milk (almond or coconut)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6-7 ice cubes
  • 1 scoop collagen peptides (optional)

Method

  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!

Low(er) Carb Chocolate PB Banana Smoothie: Calories: 323, Fat: 21.5g, Total Carbs 22.5g, Fiber 6.5g, (net carbs 16g), Protein: 27.5g

The above ingredients will yield a smoothie that has about 16 net carbs in it. Sometimes if I’m craving a bit more sweetness, since this has more of a dark chocolate taste,  I’ll add a ½ tablespoon of maple syrup, which will add 5 carbs to the smoothie.

If you’re looking for another great smoothie idea and love chocolate & mint check out my shamrock shake recipe!
