Prep Time: 5minutes
Total Time: 5minutes
Yield: 1 serving
6 oz vanilla yogurt (dairy free or sugar free if desired)
1/2 cup milk of choice
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder or chocolate protein powder
2 tbsp peanut butter (optional)
sweetener of choice to taste
Add everything to a blender, and blend until smooth. Serve, and enjoy. If you have a high speed blender (like a Vitamix) and want to make an even thicker smoothie, freeze the milk in an ice cube tray ahead of time. Once frozen, blend with the other ingredients to make a super thick chocolate smoothie.
Chocolate Smoothie Recipes
Chocolate Coffee Smoothie: Add half a teaspoon of instant coffee before blending.
Black Forest: Instead of yogurt, substitute six ounces of frozen cherries. If not buying the fruit already pitted, be sure to remove the pits prior to blending.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie: Blend in two tablespoons of peanut butter, powdered peanut butter, or almond butter for a rich and decadent chocolate shake.
Nutella Smoothie: Follow the steps for the chocolate peanut butter shake above, substituting the nut butter for store bought or Homemade Nutella.
Chocolate Strawberry: Instead of vanilla yogurt, use strawberry yogurt and add one or two frozen chopped strawberries. Or make a blueberry version with blueberry yogurt and a small handful of frozen blueberries.
Chocolate Banana Smoothie: For an added sugar free smoothie, use a ripe frozen banana as your sweetener of choice. This will also yield a thicker smoothie.
Tropical Smoothie: Use canned coconut milk as your milk of choice and six ounces frozen mango or banana instead of the yogurt.
