Whether you're sick or simply looking for a drink that will make you feel great inside and out, this juice is for you. Ginger gives healthy smoothies a potent taste, so be careful if you're not used to strongly flavored drinks. This juice is filled with anti-inflammatory compounds and tons of vegetables to help you fulfill your daily recommended intake of vitamins and minerals.

Chocolate banana peanut butter smoothie
Think a Reese's peanut butter cup, but better. This chocolate banana peanut butter smoothie fulfills all your dreams and puts it into a neat little glass. You won't need to add any extra sugar if you like your drinks to be on the sweeter side. It tastes just like a frothy milkshake if you use ripe and creamy bananas. To keep sugar on the low side, use unsweetened almond milk instead of vanilla or chocolate almond milk.
- 2 bananas
- ¼ cup of almond milk
- ¼ cup of cold water
- 2 teaspoons of natural peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons of chocolate protein powder
Blend everything together until mixture is smooth. Top with toasted oats, coconut flakes, and chocolate chips.
