Dark Side Smoothie

  
We all love a good smoothie, and we all love a good smoothie with chocolate. 

I created and whipped this bad boy up after spin class a couple weeks ago, and will definitely be doing it again.

The peanut butter is protein packed, and the powder is super low in calories, is made with half all natural chocolate, and only has .5 grams of fat. 

It’s good to feel bad, huh? Thankful we aren’t being bad, we are giving our body what it needs post workout. 💪 

Ingredients

Jif All Natural Peanut Butter, Creamy

Hershey’s Special Dark Powder

Milk

Crushed Ice

I use a Ninja Blender that has the singke serve blending cup, as well as the regular blender.

Using a single serve cup, fill it about half way with crushed ice.

Place two large spoonfuls of peanut butter and 1tbls of Special Dark in over the ice.

Top off with your choice of milk, I start off with filling just over half full. 

Screw blade onto cup and begin blending. If the smoothie is too think, add more milk to get it to a smoother consistency. 

One fully blended (I blend until I have a smooth, complete “vortex” in the cup), pour into glass, or drink right from the single serve cup, and enjoy!

Now remember, we are using DARK chocolate, don’t expect it to be sweet like a shake, but it isn’t bitter either. The peanut butter adds a little sweetness, but I just wanted to to know ahead of time, we are on the Dark Side after all.
