Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie

A little later this morning I’m going to get my nails done with Isaac’s mom, stopping by Isaac’s school to deliver some Valentine’s Day cards, working out, going on the venue tour and then coming home to make dinner with Isaac. Definitely a busy, but lovely day.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie


Description

A vegan smoothie with two of my favorite things — strawberries and chocolate. It’s the perfect way to indulge in a chocolate treat this Valentine’s Day.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh organic strawberries
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 Tablespoon protein powder (I used Sunwarrior Natural)
  • 1 Tablespoon raw cacao powder or cocoa powder
  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • 2 pitted dates
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 45 cubes of ice
  • 2 drops of stevia to sweeten (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place strawberries, banana, protein powder, cacao powder, almond milk, dates, vanilla and stevia in blender and blend until fruit is pureed and ingredients are well mixed.
  2. Add ice and blend until smooth.

As you can tell, I love Valentine’s Day!

  1. Awesome! I only used one date and left out the stevia and it was plenty sweet for me. The chocolate and strawberry combination is a winner for sure.

  2. WOW!!! After just completing a 30 day green smoothie fast that consisted of some not so easy ingredients to consume, this was a most pleasant treat! Today is my birthday so I treated myself to this smoothie minus any green leafy vegetables!! It is totally AWESOME!!! Thank you.

  3. I just tried your smoothie for the first time and I must say it is my new favourite smoothie! So delicious! Thanks for sharing!

  4. That smoothie looks BOMB! I’m so glad I”m not the only one that puts dates in their smoothies! Sometimes I feel like a little kid, just throwing random foods in my Magic Bullet hoping it tastes good! I’ve tried figs, too. YUM!!

    Hope you had a wonderful <3 Day!!

  5. Happy Birthday, Brittany!
    I am a HUGE fan of your protein pancakes, and will have to try this strawberry twist on a favorite 🙂 Have fun touring venues

  6. Happy Birthday! Brittany…you are just too cute! Iit was a great day to begin my marathon training 😀 hopefully I’ll get to see you if I pass through Richmond when I head to C ville for marathon in April! 😀

  7. Your day is off to a FABULOUS start. I’ve never had an almond milk latte. Every time I try almond milk in plain coffee it doesn’t go well, but perhaps if it was steamed it would be incredible. I’m on a mission to find a shop that offers one!

    That smoothie and those flowers are both beautiful. Glad you’re taking the whole day off. Enjoy – and happy birthday, Britt!

      • Hi Brittany! I just tried an almond milk latte at Whole Foods and it was AMAZING! I haven’t been drinking/eating dairy for a few weeks and have seen huge improvements in my skin and sleeping habit – so I think I’ll stick with it! I had missed my morning lattes and the almond milk coffees I was making at home just weren’t decadent enough to fulfill my cravings. I can’t wait to try Lamplighter next!
