The Choco-Monkey Smoothie

I am a H-U-G-E smoothie drinker.  As a result of my love for smoothies, my kids have also become pretty big smoothie drinkers.  The Choco-Monkey Smoothie is their ultimate favorite.  The combination of chocolatey flavor, banana and peanut butter with a hint of a few other flavors is a winning combo.

They LOVE all things peanut butter, and if you can’t have the peanut butter….no worries, see our favorite swap and trade below!

NOTE:  This video was made several years ago.  The giveaway is not longer relevant, but the smoothie is forever relevant!

Here is the recipe for you to blend and sip…

Notes

More on making the Choco-Monkey Smoothie;

Nut allergies?  Replace the peanut butter with WowButter®.  This can be located at your Price Chopper/Market 32 Supermarkets in the allergy friendly aisle.

Dairy allergies?  Replace the milk with you favorite dairy free option depending on other dietary concerns; oat milk, almond milk, cashew milk etc.  Our favorite alternative happens to be the almond milk either unsweetened or with a hint of honey.

Leftovers?  What do you do if you have smoothie leftovers?  We’ve all been there, although not with this recipe in my home, but with others.  Simply pour the leftovers into a popsicle mold or paper coated cup with a craft stick in the center.  Place them in the freezer and turn them into freeze pops for future yum.

Smoothies and Kids!  Even the simplest recipes are fantastic for kids and full of kitchen lessons…

  • measuring ingredients
  • following directions
  • blending and blender safety
  • fruit prep, etc.

More Smoothie Fun?  Try making a smoothie bowl.  This is my Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie Bowl Recipe.  It’s easy and delish.  And, yes…you can swap the peanut butter.  

Fresh frozen strawberries blended with Greek vanilla yogurt to create a smoothie bowl base topped with chia seeds, coconut flakes, ground flax seed, organic granola, fresh sliced strawberries and peanut butter.
