If you love smoothies, you are going to LOVE this recipe.
We all know the classic peanut butter banana smoothie. It is one that we all grew up on, and it is hard to turn down. This is one of those treats that we all love, but we hardly make them for ourselves. Typically, smoothies are a beverage that we reserve for kids, especially if they are full of chocolate. As adults, we stick to our daily coffee to keep us happy.
But what if you were able to have your coffee and smoothie too?
Why choose between coffee and a chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie when you can have both? Now, you don’t have to with this blended twist on iced coffee. Start your day off with a smoothie that tastes like dessert, but also gives you the same energy as a cup of your favorite Crazy Cups coffee.
Smoothies are a great way to start the day because they help fill you up and help keep you full until lunchtime. Plus, they are often healthier for you than the last-minute breakfast that most of us eat… that is if we eat breakfast at all!
Smoothies also make a great snack between meals, and when you add coffee to it, it can help you get past that 2 PM slump when you need that little boost to get you through the rest of the day. Or, a dessert to satisfy that sweet tooth you get after your dinner - try a decaf coffee to avoid that late-night insomnia!
This Caffeinated Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie becomes extra chocolatey when you make it with Crazy Cups Death By Chocolate coffee pods. This flavor is a great way to add additional chocolate without the added calories.
Plus, Death by Chocolate also comes in decaf for those who cannot have caffeine or want to be able to enjoy a Decaffeinated Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie late at night and still get a restful night’s sleep.
This smoothie is so simple to make that you can have it ready to consume in just minutes. Just brew your Crazy Cups Death by Chocolate flavored coffee in your Keurig and blend it together with the remainder of ingredients for a sweet, filling smoothie that will remind you of being a kid all over again. You’ll be taken back from the moment your coffee begins to brew and you start to smell the sweet chocolate aroma fill the room.
