After an extremely long twelve hours (9:30am-9:30pm), I came home yesterday to a whole list of assignments that I had yet to complete for class today. Not only was I tired, but I was also starving! (A four o'clock dinner was not a smart idea). So naturally, I put my books down and sauntered over to the fridge, hoping that I would be able to find something healthy and delicious to satisfy my late-night appetite. Peanut butter, fruit, yogurt... The same ol' stuff. Kind of boring, yes?

Enter Mr. Blender. As you can probably infer from my previous statement, I ended up combining a bunch of those boring-by-themselves-foods and creating (what I believe to be) the ultimate smoothie.


The recipe, roughly:
6 oz. nonfat plain greek yogurt*
1/2 cup milk**
1 cup ice cubes
1 packet hot cocoa mix
1 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
1 frozen banana
1 cup chilled coffee (for those of you who need an energy boost)
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

*Fage yogurt is my personal favorite.  
**I used unsweetened almond milk, but any kind of milk will do.

If I'm being honest, this might've even been the best homemade smoothie I've ever had. Try it and let me know what you think!
