Recipe Directions

Blend frozen bananas with nut milk. If your blender objects, try using a spatula to free up the blades or add more milk, which will understandably thin the smoothie. Add the peanut butter, raw carob powder and any additions, blending until smooth. I like to add the cacao nibs at the end and blend them once or twice to keep them crunchy. Sprinkle some more cacao nibs on top and enjoy!

Note: I generally use a nut milk consisting of 1/4 cup each dates and soaked pumpkin seeds blended with 2 1/2 cups of water, keeping the remaining milk in the fridge for later.

Other optional additions:

1 tablespoon agave nectar

1 tablespoon flax or hemp oil

1 tablespoon ground flax seeds

1 medjool date

Vegan_Vancouverite's Thoughts

This smoothie is an incredible taste explosion! It is very thick and filling – definitely a treat worth getting up for. Other nut butters can be substituted, but the peanut butter and chocolate combination is outstanding.

I used coconut w/ with the water. Peanut butter, raw cacao powder, 1 frozen nanner and 1 room temp nanner and a squirt of raw local organic honey. The only problem is drinking it too fast rofl. Man it really tastes like reeses cups in a glass. I might add cayenne next time to slow down the process. Now that's a HAWT chocolate.

Wow, I've got to try this one! I think I'll use almonds w/maca to try to get some of that peanut butter-like flavor. Thanks!

Luna blu- I know the same one at sunfood nutrition. Yes, they are the only ones without the aflatoxins. I bought the jungle peanuts, but not the butter yet. They are really good, you should try them sometime. But yes, the almond butter is my fav too! I'm gonna make some today. :)

David Wolfes Sunfood Nutritian brand has raw jungle peanut peanut butter. You can get it on the Sunfood Nutrition site as well! It's new. Aparetnly these peanuts are the only ones without the aflotoxin (sp.?) mold so they are able to remain raw and un processed. I personally don't dig peanuts, almond butter is my fave!

Recipe sounds good tho! :)

This sounds great. I use Raw Almond Butter. I have a Blendtec and my greensmoothie with chard is so ground up that its a nice creamy consistancy to pure liquid depending on how much water I put in. You can use the Blendtec to make your nut butters as well. Can't wait to taste this. Thanks for the recipe!

FuzzyWuzzy - I find that chewy smoothies can be fantastic, unless of course it's a green smoothie - chewy chard is nightmarish.

humanimal - I'm curious as to how much cayenne you would add - perhaps an 1/8 teaspoon or less?

debbietook - I confess that while my peanut butter is organic, it is probably not raw. Nevertheless, *Samara Anne*'s version sounds wonderful!

I don't know how most people make their peanut butter but to yield 2 c peanut butter I'll process 1 c of soaked then dehydrated raw peanuts until smooth but a little chunky and then mix it with some raw almond butter and a little almond oil, avocado oil, macadamia nut oil or other moderately light-flavored oil. Enjoy (add salt to taste if desired)

I've never seen raw peanut butter? Can you get it in the US?

Add some cayenne pepper to that beast and you will have to drink it extra slowly and will enjoy it even more!

This may be just the solution I'm looking for. I always drink my smoothies too fast. But with some nibs blended in, I'll be forced to 'chew' my smoothie! Thanks!
