Strawberry Chocolate Chip Smoothies

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Smoothies

Winter is sadly not a great time for fresh fruit and vegetables in New England. When I go to the store I usually pick up all different kinds of frozen produce. Frozen fruit will unfortunately never taste as good as fresh when thawed and eaten but thankfully makes a delicious smoothie.

This is good to have in the morning if you’re in a rush to get out the door or even at night after dinner for something healthy and delicious. If you use a Greek style yogurt you can really pump up the protein in this drink.

If you use a flavored yogurt instead of plain you can skip the added sweetener altogether. Try using white chocolate chips for a different flavor.

    This is a great way to use the less-flavorful winter strawberries.

    I am a huge fan of the strawberry-chocolate combo! I’ve used it in smoothies in the past, but I used cocoa powder instead of chocolate chips–the chips sound tastier, and they make for a prettier smoothie too ;)
    Pinned it!

      You could use honey or maple syrup or corn syrup

    Well, my wife and I have had this smoothie for the last five mornings in a row. I’m sure that eventually we will turn back to one of our other favorites, but the highest compliment that you can give a recipe is to actually use it repeatedly. We want to also express that compliment here in words. What makes this special in our minds is the crunch of the chocolate chips. In a sense, it is an anti-smoothie, but those little bits of chocolate that you chew with each sip make it a unique and special experience. Thanks for sharing. It has made our world a little brighter and tastier and will continue to do so.
