Easy chocolate strawberry smoothie is a delicious low-fat low calorie refreshing smoothie. This quick and easy healthy smoothie still tastes wickedly indulgent though!
Chocolate and strawberries are like best friends aren’t they folks?
You could even go as far as saying they’re a match made in heaven.
As a foodie combination they taste amazing too don’t they?
The one drawback is that too much of a good thing can have its consequences. In this case chocolate.
Although chocolate is make with cocoa, a lot of commercial chocolate has additional ingredients that can add fat, sugar and calories to a recipe.
Which is why I have chosen to make my chocolate strawberry smoothie with cocoa powder alone. Unlike many of the other available versions of this smoothie made with chocolate.
Unlike chocolate, cocoa itself is low in sugar and fat while offering potential health benefits. I’ve listed those health benefits and the overall benefits of this healthy chocolate strawberry smoothie below.
This is a much healthier smoothie that you could enjoy for breakfast or as a snack during the day.
It tastes absolutely delicious and it’s really refreshing too.
Not only that it’s really easy to make. Hence it’s title!
So how do you make this chocolate strawberry smoothie?
Simple. It’s just 6 ingredients all blended together and in a couple of minutes you’ve got 2 servings at just 200 calories each!
Of course there’s the strawberries. I couldn’t not talk about them could I?
I always like to make something special whenever it’s the season of Scottish strawberries. Remember the strawberry whisky cheesecake? 🙂
I’ve just managed to sneak this chocolate strawberry smoothie recipe in. Using Scottish strawberries before the end of the season!
Scottish strawberries always have had a place in my heart. Amongst the numerous jobs I’ve had in my time, (that conversation would need a whole blog post itself to discuss!) I spent many happy school holiday’s working in the strawberry fields of The Carse of Gowrie.
My friend Jason and I picked strawberries from morning until night. To earn a little extra pocket money. It was back breaking work. The weather changed from hot to cold to rain – frequently!
However, all in all we loved it! We had a small transistor radio and listened to Radio 1 all day. One of the songs I remember most being played was Hollywood Beyond and What’s the Color of Money? So whenever I hear that song now it reminds me of those times.
Of course you don’t need to use Scottish strawberries to make this. Naturally though with having such an abundance right here on my own doorstep I’m biased! 😉
