Decadent Chocolate Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Who loves chocolate strawberries?  Raise your hand!!!!  Who loves smoothies?   Raise your other hand!!!  And reach for this most delicious chocolate strawberry smoothie, bananas are optional but they certainly add to the flavor!

Okay here’s what you do to make the best smoothie ever!

In a blender or food processer toss about 1-1/2 cups frozen strawberries, sprinkle in 1 tsp of sugar.  Try using  powdered sugar in your smoothies.  I was making smoothies one day and was out of regular sugar so I improvised and used powdered, it works!  Add about 2 tablespoons of orange juice and just let the stuff sit for about 15 minutes so the strawberries can thaw just a little bit. 

Spoon in about a 1/2 c of yogurt, layer with half of a banana, sliced. 

Here’s the best part!  Take about a scant 1/4 c of chocolate chips and put them in a microwave safe dish,  don’t use much more than that or the chocolate will over power the berries in the smoothie.   Add about 1 tsp milk in with the chocolate chips and nuke it for about 10 seconds or until you can stir the chips into a heavenly creamy sauce.  You might have to add a drop or two more, depends on your chocolate.   Be careful not to over-heat the chips.

Go ahead, dip your finger in it, you know you want to…

While the chocolate cools, cover the blender and turn it on!!!  Blend the ingredients well, adding a few more drops of OJ if it’s needed but no more than an additional teaspoon.  When the berries are blended into a creamy smoothieness, leave the blender on but remove the little thing that lets you add yummy little tidbits while it is swirling around…add a light drizzle of honey.  After the honey has been incorporated, turn off the blender and pour the chocolate heaven on top of the berries and yogurt and blend until it is mixed in well.  Pour into your favorite glass and standback to admire if you must…. if you can…. just stand there and drool over it, I mean look at it.  Seriously, find a comfy chair, and sip to your hearts desire…

This is the sweetest, not the sugary sweetest but rather the damn best sweetest smoothie you will ever have!  

Remember to be good to yourself!

Cheers!
