Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothie



Today was one of those mornings where my 4-year-old refused to eat breakfast. I went through the list of usual options: Oatmeal? Toast with peanut butter? Apple muffin with sesame butter? Fried egg with ketchup? He replied with a definitive, “No. Neverland!” (It’s his new expression.) So then I got creative.

“How about a peanut-butter chocolate milkshake?” In our house, milkshake has become the code word for smoothie. As soon as his face lit up at thought of his three favorite things for breakfast, I quickly moved to the blender and started throwing it together.

I used all-natural peanut butter, unsalted peanuts, hulled pumpkin seeds, cocoa, and vanilla soy milk. The vanilla soy milk is already sweetened, so I didn’t need a sweetener here. If you use cow milk or unsweetened milk, you may need to add a bit of honey, agave nectar, brown sugar, or a banana. Taste as you go. The result was a hit, and my son quickly slurped it up.

Here’s the easy recipe from scratch:
