Get in the Valentine’s Day spirit with my Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie recipe!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie recipe / Running in a Skirt

Hi everyone!

Although a huge blown out Valentine’s Day isn’t my thing, I’m about the excuse to eat some Valentine’s Day treats.  Whoever invented chocolate covered strawberries is literally a genius in my book. The sweet berries… sinfully rich chocolate… it is literally one of my all time favorite food combinations.  It’s one of those foods I will never turn down.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

In fact gorgeous Florida strawberries just appeared back into my local grocery stores and I could not have been more excited to start to enjoy the fresh fruit again for this exact purpose.  You should have seen me at the store gushing over the fresh berries.  Aren’t they pretty and just begging to be dunked in rich dark chocolate?  See I have a problem….

In honor of my favorite Valentine’s Day sweet, I created a healthy smoothie.  Lucky for you my Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie recipe only looks decadent it’s actually healthy enough to eat any day not just on the holiday!  Now the trick is to get me to step away from the strawberries and chocolate… lol!

Ok… so I might have gotten a little carried away with the chocolate drizzle here… I actually went back and laughed when I was editing the photos.   That much chocolate on top takes away from the health factor a little, but everything inside the actually smoothie is perfect clean eating fun!

Once again an over-ripe banana is the base for the creamy deliciousness.  Once you add chocolate and strawberries you don’t even taste it though!  Everything comes together with a smooth taste that feels festive this time of year.

    This looks AMAZING. I’m curious if I could make this the night before and have it ready to go in the morning…Something to try out, I think!

      You could probably measure out the ingredients and do it in the morning. If you freeze it it takes forever to loosen up again.
