Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie

Chocolate and strawberries. Strawberries and chocolate. A natural pair. MFEO. Peas in a pod. And perfect for today.

I think you’re looking at the perfect breakfast to whip up for your Valentine this morning. Or any morning, really. It’s chocolatey – oh, so chocolatey – but it also boasts a nice, big dose of healthy, juicy strawberries along with vanilla yogurt, a little orange juice, and a dash of vanilla.

It tastes just like a chocolate-covered strawberry. Just, you know, one that you drink with a straw.

    I wish I was at home with my blender right now so I could make this! I pinned it to my breakfast board, and I WILL be making these when I get home. It looks too good to pass up!

    Love it! I’ve been on a smoothie kick lately, so I might have to add this one to my regular rotation. :)

      Me too! Total smoothie kick. They’re pretty much the best invention ever. Other than the iPhone.

    It’s really good with half fresh, half frozen strawberries, also dolci chocolate with chocolate chips. I didn’t have orange juice so I used some Sunkist. It is so good!
