What Is Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie?
This chocolate raspberry smoothie is a thick, fudgy chocolate smoothie with added frozen raspberries that add a lovely fresh fruity flavor.
It’s an easy drink that can be made in just a few minutes for a fresh and healthy snack or breakfast.
How To Make Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie
This is the easiest chocolate smoothie ever. All you need are a few simple healthy ingredients and 5 minutes to make it.
- Frozen Raspberries – It’s better to use frozen berries because they increase the creamy texture of the smoothie.
- Ice Cubes
- Unsweetened Almond Milk or coconut milk for a nut-free option.
- Chia Seeds – This adds protein, healthy fats, and fiber. Chia seeds also add creaminess to the smoothie recipe.
- Sweetener of Choice – You can use coconut sugar, maple syrup, or date syrup for an all-natural sweetener that tastes amazing in chocolate smoothies.
- Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- Vanilla Extract
Place all the ingredients in a blender jug or NutriBullet and blend until smooth, on the high-speed setting, until all the ingredients come together into a thick chocolate texture.
Give it a taste, and adjust it to your liking.
We all have different tastes and for some, smoothies should be thicker or runner, or even sweeter. Below are my tips to adjust your smoothie to your liking:
- Sweetness – If your chocolate smoothie is not sweet enough, add more sweetener, one teaspoon at a time, and blend to incorporate.
- Thicker smoothie – Adding more ice cubes or frozen raspberries will thicken up your smoothies easily. On the other hand, you can make this smoothie runnier by adding more almond milk or decreasing the number of ice cubes.
- Increase chocolate flavor – You can add chocolate chips to the blender. It turns the chips into small chocolate bites in the smoothie, perfect for fixing chocolate cravings. Also, feel free to increase cocoa powder by 1-2 teaspoons for a stronger flavor.
This raspberry chocolate smoothie is delicious on its own but even better with some toppings like:
- Dark chocolate chips
- Fresh raspberries
- Chopped peanuts
- Sliced almonds
- Unsweetened desiccated coconut
- Whipped cream – you can use coconut whipped cream as a dairy-free option.
- Drizzle peanut butter or almond butter
You can boost the nutrition profile of this smoothie by adding some extra ingredients like:
- Protein powder – add about 1 tablespoon.
- Hemp seeds – boost protein and healthy fat.
- Spinach – to boost your greens.
- Avocado for a boost of creaminess, healthy fats, and fiber.
- Almond butter or peanut butter – Add up to 1 tablespoon to increase the rich, fudgy texture of the smoothie and add a nutty flavor.
You can freeze this raspberry smoothie into popsicle molds to make chocolate raspberry popsicles. But, this works only if you didn’t use frozen raspberries. It’s not safe to refreeze frozen fruits.
However, I don’t recommend storing smoothies in the fridge because they split into layers and lose all their texture.
