Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Power Smoothie made with avocado! Great breakfast smoothie! - The Cookie RookieI’ve only made smoothies a couple of times.  Every time I do, I ask myself why I don’t make them more often!

Not much.  This delicious smoothie is packed with healthy ingredients like banana, natural peanut butter, avocado, and CocoaVia® Cocoa extract…but tastes like a dessert.  What a great way to start the day!
