The best thing about chocolate smoothies is that you can satisfy your chocolate craving in a super healthy way.
We have developed lots and lots of chocolate smoothie recipes, and we are going to share them all with your today!
Do Chocolate Smoothies Exist?
You bet they do! Chocolate smoothies are very much a thing, and they are often a great way to curb your chocolate cravings!
You can either buy chocolate smoothies or make them yourself. We personally prefer to make them ourselves.
Can You Blend Chocolate In a Blender?
Depends. Blending a bar of chocolate may not work, but you can definitely blend cocoa powder, melted chocolate, etc.
If your blender is powerful, you can also be able to blend chocolate chips.
It’s always best to use cocoa/cacao powder though to give your smoothies a chocolate flavor.
What Happens If You Blend Chocolate?
If you do end up blending chocolate, this may harm your blender, not to mention leave your smoothie with unblended bits of chocolate.
Avoid blending chocolate bars, unless the chocolate is softened and you are using a high-quality blender such as a Vitamix.
How Do You Thicken Chocolate Smoothies?
If you find yourself constantly with chocolate smoothies that always tend to end up being too runny, then there are a couple of things you can do to thicken them.
Here’s the list:
- Add banana
- Chia Seeds
- Nut Butters
- Reduce The The Amount Of Liquid You Add
- Add frozen fruit
And the list goes on.
