Everyone should know how to make a good smoothie, not just for the nutrition, but so that we all learn to make time for every meal instead of just skipping.

Recipe by Carrian Cheney from Raised in the Kitchen.

Chocolate Smoothie Bowl


  • 1 ¼ cups low-fat chocolate milk
  • 1 cup chopped frozen bananas
  • ¼ cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • ½ to 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds


  • Sliced bananas
  • Berries
  • Granola
  • Shredded coconut
  • Melted peanut butter


1. Add milk, frozen bananas, yogurt, spinach, peanut butter, and chia seeds to the jar of a blender. Process until smooth, about one minute.

2. Pour into bowls and top with additional fruit, granola, and coconut shreds. Drizzle melted peanut butter over top and serve.

Pro Tip: Try using regular milk or a different dairy alternative, as well as different types of frozen fruit, to create your own smoothie shop at home.
