Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup

Ingredients

  • 1 banana - peeled
  • 1 pear - chopped
  • 1/2 avocado - pitted
  • 2 dates
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Searching for a sweet treat that keeps you feeling hydrated and energetic? This smoothie is it. Both pear and avocado are great for natural skin hydration (thanks to vitamin C, potassium, and healthy Omega-3s), and peanut butter and cacao provide healthy fat, protein, antioxidants, and iron — all essential ingredients for natural energy production. Add in a banana for potassium and electrolytes, and dates for natural sweetness, and you have a high fiber, high protein treat that will keep you feeling invigorated without any unwanted sugar crashes.
