Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Dessert Smoothie

 Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Dessert Smoothie

This is a video I made showing you how to make my Peanut Butter chocolate Chip Dessert Smoothie. It’s about 220 calories. I came up with this recipe while visiting my parents. They love when I make vegan dishes for them, but my dad always wants dessert. Since Gabe and I rarely eat sweets I don’t have a huge repertoire of desserts. Don’t get me wrong we like our sugar in the form of beer, wine or bread. Our pallet is usually more on the savory side. I do however, love a good smoothie and I wanted my dad to be able to enjoy a sweet treat without the added calories from lots of refined sugar and fat.

Notes on this recipe

I used unsweetened coconut milk, but you could use any type of alternative milk or water. For the banana I used sliced frozen banana because it helps give the dessert more of an ice cream or milk shake feel. If you use a fresh banana you may want to add more ice to get the same result. I use peanut butter powder because I wanted to make a lower fat, lower calorie dessert, but fresh ground peanut butter would add a great creamy texture.  Add water or ice to achieve the consistency you like. You could also put the dessert in the freezer for half an hour or so to let it set up a bit.
