Biggest Loser Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Smoothie

Is it breakfast, dessert, a post work out meal, a milk shake, or all of these things?  Hard to decide!  The team at Biggest Loser Resorts came up with this peanut butter chocolate smoothie, kicked it up with banana and honey, and it manages to be a rich treat and a protein boost all in one.

Notes
We love using powdered peanut butter (PB2) in place of full fat peanut butter. It saves on a great many fat calories. Add to taste -- it is not necessary to use as full cup. Note the nutritional stats -- we've seen this misquoted at 50 calories all over the web. Be careful -- this is a meal, not a beverage!
