A chocolate nut butter smoothie doesn’t need much more of an introduction than that. It’s chocolate with nut butter, and it’s a smoothie. Therefore it’s the greatest thing ever.

If you haven’t been convinced that this smoothie is the greatest thing ever, consider the fact that it comes in layers. So not only is it a nut butter smoothie, with chocolate, but it’s fun and pretty at the same time. Think of other great things that have layers. Tiramisu. Cakes. Ogres. I think the point is made.

The optional cacao nib garnish is a nice way to add a bit of extra bittersweet darkness to the smoothie, and also for a bit of texture. But of course, this isn’t an all-chocolate showcase. That almond butter makes for a super creamy, delicious smoothie that will give you a boost of protein and amino acids on top of your daily recommended dose of chocolate.

  1. To make the chocolate layer: In a blender, process all the chocolate layer ingredients until very smooth. Pour half into another container and set aside. Divide the remaining smoothie mixture between two glasses.
  2. To make the nut butter layer: Blend the nut butter layer ingredients until very smooth, and divide between the glasses. Spoon this on top of the chocolate layer, being careful not to blend the two layers too much. Then, gently add the remaining chocolate layer mixture.
  3. This is beautiful when made in three layers, but is just as delicious if made in two.
  4. Top with chopped almonds and/or cacao nibs, if using.
