This simple vegan chocolate and peanut butter smoothies recipe is incredibly easily to make, it just uses a blender. But don’t let the simplicity fool you – this recipe is a showstopper in terms of both aesthetics and flavor! It is also a flexible recipe which, depending on your preferences, can be tailored to more of a super-duper chocolate smoothie or a vanilla smoothie blend. I recommend you try both, but that’s just me.
