We all know that dark chocolate is one of the best sources of antioxidants, and it can lower the risk of heart disease and improve your health. Today, I want to share with you a super smoothie recipe that’s perfect for any time of the day. It’s creamy and has a thick consistency. This recipe will make enough for one serving, but you can easily double the ingredients to serve 2.
When I heard the word smoothie, my brain immediately goes to fruits. Almost every place I went that sells smoothies, always uses a combination of fruits, until I went to this one place near my office that sells a chocolate smoothie. I was hooked and have been making my combination of chocolate smoothie; one of them is this recipe that I want to share with you today.
The thick consistency of this smoothie is perfect when you add some honey; it will also give it some sweetness. If you have some dark chocolate leftovers, just sprinkle it on top, and it will be a great addition to it.
