Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake

As some of you may already know, I have a chocolate addiction…….

Seriously! Every day around 2:15pm (once my kids are down for nap time) I make a beeline for the kitchen in search of whatever chocolatey goodness I can indulge in.

Chocolate brings me joy – that’s all there is to it!

(Well, maybe it brings me a few calories too, but we’ll just forget about that for now…..lol)

Today I decided to decided to make a yummy chocolate shake. I normally enjoy this a couple times a week. It’s simply one of my favorites!

I love this recipe because it is a great base that you can tweak according to your preferences and what ingredients you have on hand.

This soothing chocolate shake is delicious. But shhh…..don’t tell anyone that you’re sneaking in spinach, avocado, banana, chia seeds and flaxseed meal.

Yum!!!
