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.

Adjusting Smoothies

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.

Storage Instructions

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve listed below the answers to the most common questions about this raspberry smoothie recipe.

Can I Use Other Berries?

Absolutely, if you are not a fan of raspberries, try strawberries, boysenberries, or blueberries.

Are Raspberry And Chocolate A Good Combination?

Chocolate and raspberry go very well together in cakes, smoothies, or muffins.
The chocolate is sweet, and raspberries are fruity, lightly acidic, and enhance chocolate flavors in sweet recipes.

Do Chocolate Smoothies Exist?

Absolutely yes, you can add unsweetened cocoa powder to most smoothie recipes.
Adding chocolates to this one turns it into a fudgy chocolate smoothie recipe.

What Makes Smoothies Healthy?

A smoothie is mostly healthy as long as it’s not made from refined ingredients like ice cream, sweetened yogurt, or added refined sugar.

What Is The Healthiest Liquid To Put In A Smoothie?

The best liquid to add to smoothies to make creamy, light, and low-calorie smoothies are non-dairy milk like unsweetened almond milk, cashew milk, or high-protein soy milk.
Avoid adding fruit juice that increases the sugar content of the smoothie.
