{Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie with Chia Seeds}

Feels like it has been forever since I have blogged!  I have kinda gone full speed ahead on the whole wedding planning thing!  I feel like I will calm down a bit on the wedding front once the date is set, and the venue is official!  Lots of little ideas and plans right now but nothing 100% set in stone!  Wedding planning is exciting, but also makes you think a lot!!  And I am a planner with a brain that I feel never shuts off! 

I mentioned a few posts ago that I had been gravitating towards simple and easy to prepare recipes, and this smoothie definitely falls under the simple category.  But don't let the simple preparation turn you away from making this smoothie, because this smoothie is delicious!  This smoothie has a thick and creamy texture and is packed full of good for you protein.  This smoothie was created in an attempt to fit a little more protein into my life, while also providing me sweet tooth with a delicious and healthy dose of chocolate!  I added in chia seeds for a nutritional punch, but feel free to omit the chia seeds if you like!  Make this smoothie for breakfast, an afternoon snack or whip it up for an after dinner treat!  It really is yummy!
