Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

My new lifestyle doesn't allow for much refined sugar if it isn't balanced with protein and fiber. So, imagine my delight when I came up with this dessert recipe. It satisfies my sweet tooth but supports my system with what I need to live.

Pick N Save is helping me out with milk on sale and I am pairing it with coupons and coming up with the tastiest money saving around! It is normally $3.15. and I got it for $1.99/lb. to make my featured recipe today.
