Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie Recipe

You might be thinking that a ginormous chocolate smoothie as luscious as this would cost you a full day's worth of calories or would be incredibly unhealthy, but would I ever do that to you? No way 😏

I care too much about your healthy eating to do that!

So instead, I'm giving you a ginormous chocolate strawberry smoothie that tastes out of this world delicious, but is totally nutritious! We're talking protein-packed, high in fiber, low in sugar, and still…it tastes like dessert! If you're a chocolate lover like me, this smoothie is definitely going into your morning rotation!

How to Make a Healthy Smoothie

Smoothies are one of my favorite things in the world. I think they're an awesome way to get in a TON of nutrients, while also having something that's easy to make and totally portable.

When I'm making a healthy smoothie, I try to focus on a few key things:

  • low sugar fruits: mostly berries for me!
  • fibrous veggies: I like cauliflower, zucchini, and greens
  • protein: either protein powder, nut butter or hemp seeds
  • healthy fat: avocado, nut butter, hemp seeds, etc.

If I check all four boxes, I know I've created something healthy, nutritious and fabulous!

This chocolate strawberry smoothie is jam-packed with superfoods.

We start with coconut water which is full of electrolytes. A little zucchini for extra hydration and creaminess. Frozen strawberries for sweetness and antioxidants. Unsweetened cocoa powder which has even more antioxidants. Hemp seeds for added protein. And a splash of vanilla extract for that extra flavor kick it needs.

And it tastes just like a chocolate-covered strawberry. I'd say the perfect, guilt-free morning treat.
