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!

Healthy Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie Ingredients

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.

  1. Hey Alyssa!

    I’m wondering if I saved the other half in the fridge how long would it be good for/what would be the best way to save it….thanks so much!! Looks awesome and want to try it this week!

    • Definitely! I would say that you can save it for at least a day or two and keep it in something like a mason jar 🙂

  2. […] so you really can’t taste it at all – especially when it’s up against things like banana, protein power, chocolate and in this case […]

  3. […] When your breakfast involves chocolate, you know it’s going to be a good day. And when your breakfast tastes like candy, it’s even better. But even better yet, it’s when your breakfast involves chocolate, tastes like candy AND is actually good for you, that’s when things get magical. […]
