This healthy chocolate smoothie is divine. It’s creamy, rich, and satisfyingly chocolatey but with a lightness that makes you feel weirdly virtuous. I say weirdly because chocolate and virtuous aren’t two words you’d normally put together, but with this smoothie you really can satisfy a chocolate craving and at the same time feel like you’ve treated your body to a dose of something nutritious.
If you leave the smoothie in the fridge it firms up, and becomes pretty mousse-like. So that’s what I do when I get the urge for a last minute/ no cook chocolatey dessert. Super easy and delicious!
