If you love the combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and a small amount of banana then this thrive smoothie is for you! If you prefer to skip the banana due to health reasons, or preferences, and make this fruit-free, then please do YOU! I sometimes skip the banana and the flavors are still superb with the chocolate and peanut butter taking center stage! It’s such a small amount of banana (½ small frozen banana) and as I am always active, I often toss it in.
You won’t taste the greens, or the cauliflower (in true thrive smoothie style), instead, you will be in choc-peanut butter heaven without realizing the nutrient-loaded 5 to thrive smoothie you have just made yourself. Remember what the 5 to thrive are? Protein, healthy fats, fiber, dark leafy greens, and colored cellular carbs (such as non-starchy veg, fruits, nuts, seeds, and seaweed – plant foods with its fiber walls still intact.)
