Peanut Butter Choco Smoothie

This month's recipe is a great summer treat, easy to make and very tasty. A peanut butter choco smoothie satisfies any sweet craving and supplies lots of energy. It's a very flexible list of ingredients that could even hide some greens if you need to work some into your diet. This smoothie is my new favorite this month and definitely a keeper. It's not low calorie, but it's definitely better than eating a bag of Reece's peanut butter cups, which I could do...

Enjoy!
