Raise your hand if you love chocolate covered strawberries… Are you raising your hand? If so, you’ll love this Dark Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie! I’m definitely a believer that chocolate makes everything better, and a healthy morning smoothie is no exception!

The Ingredients & Preparation

This Dark Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie is a perfect sweet treat to make for your sweetie on Valentine’s Day. It looks and tastes deceivingly decadent, but is made with healthy Greek yogurt, frozen berries, and delicious dark cocoa powder for a bold chocolate taste.

The unsweetened dark cocoa powder contains flavonoids, which act as antioxidants in plants and can reduce inflammation without the sugar most chocolate squares contain. So, yeah, this decadent Valentine’s Day treat is actually good for you!

In the spirit of this day of love, stick two straws in this smoothie to share with your Valentine. After all, this recipe makes enough for two!

When you make this smoothie, be sure to use frozen strawberries to get the thick and frosty consistency without needing to add ice. If you only have fresh berries on hand, add about 1/2 cup of ice so that you can get the perfect thickness.

If you can’t get enough of this sweet Valentine’s Day treat, head over to Lively Table for another yummy version – my White Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie!
