Strawberries– Use ripe and sweet strawberries for best results. I like to use fresh berries for strawberry smoothie during season. I also have a stash of frozen strawberries handy and use it sometimes.
If you are using frozen berries, just add them to the blender as such, no need to thaw.
Cocoa powder– I have added unsweetened Dutch processed cocoa powder in this recipe. For healthier option you can also add cacao powder in this smoothie recipe.
Make sure to use unsweetened cocoa powder. You can also add your favorite hot chocolate powder.
Protein powder– This is one ingredient I use on and off. I add it while making smoothie if I have it handy and remember to use 🙂 I usually add 1 tablespoon per serving. Use any of your preferred brand.
Banana– A small banana makes this chocolate smoothie super rich, thick and creamy. Use fresh or frozen banana as you like.
Almond milk– For the base of this smoothie, I have used homemade almond milk. You can use any type of milk like cashew milk, soy milk or coconut milk.
Dairy milk will also taste very good in this recipe.
If you like you can use flavored milks like chocolate almond milk, chocolate cashew milk in this recipe. If you use chocolate flavored milks, just reduce the quantity of cocoa powder.
Sweetener– I have used organic raw sugar for this recipe. You can also use coconut sugar, regular sugar or maple. If the sweetness from banana and berries are good enough for you, you can skip adding sweeteners.
