No secret that chocolate is a favorite with most of us; to the point where some will include it with almost anything and this chocolate raspberry smoothie is no exception. With only three ingredients its difficult to think of an easier recipe to make.
Smoothies are a great place to add chocolate without completely wrecking your diet. Just a taste of chocolate combined with healthy fruit creates smoothies everybody likes.
Its also easy to turn this delicious smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
In your favorite blender mix:
- 1-4-ounce container of Oikos Chocolate Yogurt (high protein, no fat!)
- 1 cup of frozen raspberries
- 1 tbsp. Chia seed
