Can Valentine’s Day be truly celebrated without devouring strawberries drenched in chocolate? Leave the pondering to someone else and have yourself this simple and delicious chocolate covered strawberry smoothie made by Caroline from Taste Love and Nourish.
Using only simple ingredients, this Valentine’s inspired smoothie is under 125 calories per serving and is a awesome alternative to the chocolate covered strawberries which we tend to overeat because you can’t just have one.
Caroline states, “the trick to creating healthy smoothies that taste like desserts is keeping the ingredients simple, plant-based and omitting any refined sugar.” Making small swaps is important for this recipe as well, such as using unsweetened almond milk for whole milk, which only has 30 calories per cup with no saturated fats. Plus, there’s no added sugar! This gives you the ability to sweeten your smoothies using just fruit alone or something natural, like a bit of honey or pure maple syrup.
