Chunky Monkey Milk

My kids love to have smoothies in the morning with their breakfast.  One of their favorites is Chunky Monkey Milk.  It keeps them full longer then just regular milk does.
 I don't like bananas so in my own smoothie I leave out the banana and add an extra spoonful of peanut butter.
1 cup chocolate milk
1 banana
2 Tbsp peanut butter
3/4 cup of crushed ice

Add ingredients to the blender and blend.  Pour in a glass and enjoy.
