This smoothie is rich from Nutella—a spread made from chocolate and hazelnuts—and healthy from bananas, soy and yogurt.

Ingredients

1cup Nutella spread (found in the peanut butter aisle)
1/4cup creamy peanut butter
2cups vanilla yogurt
1 1/4cups soy milk
4medium frozen bananas
-- Chopped almonds (optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine Nutella, peanut butter, yogurt, soy milk and banana in a blender. Process until smooth. For a thinner texture, add 1/4 cup more soy milk and 3 or 4 ice cubes and process until ice is crushed.
  2. Pour into glasses. Garnish with chopped almonds, if desired.
