How to make a Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie
Only 3 ingredients are needed for this recipe! The strawberries can be frozen or not. Using frozen strawberries will give the smoothie a much thicker texture. Either buy them frozen or remove the stems and freeze your own. Use 5 or so depending on size.
For this recipe you can use any chocolate protein powder you prefer. We like Gold Standard 100% Whey Extreme Milk Chocolate because it’s low in sugar. Also, if you do not have chocolate protein powder simply use vanilla and add in 1-3 tbsp of cocoa powder depending on how strong you want your chocolate flavor to be.
You can also use any milk you prefer. Almond milk, coconut milk, vegan milks, regular milk, etc… all will work perfectly in this recipe. I would not recommend water because it needs the little bit of creaminess that the milk will add.
I’ve used lots of different blenders and had a bullet for years but I’m already super impressed with this one! It crushes frozen fruit and ice no problem. Plus, it comes with a food processor attachment and 2 individual sized cups.
