There is no denying that chocolate holds a very special place in most of our diets. There is just something so tempting and satisfying about chocolate that it is really hard to stay away. But this low calorie and healthy chocolate smoothie recipe lets you enjoy all the wonderful “chocolatyness” without guilt.
Its also easy to turn this chocolate smoothie recipe 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 taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
