Who doesn’t love hot chocolate? That soothing, comforting feeling as it slides down your throat and warms your belly, not to mention the mouth watering chocolate taste. YUM!
In order to keep regulate our waistlines over winter, we have had to do a little experimenting and turn the indulging down a notch (or two). But that’s not to say we have stopped drinking our hot chocolates completely! Oh no, no, no. Instead we just do a little experimenting in the kitchen and discover a 100% healthy way to have our chocolate and drink it too. It’s a win win situation for all.
So lo and behold, our oh so good hot chocolate smoothie (yes smoothies can be hot). A recipe soooo tasty you won’t even know the difference between the naughty and healthy variety. Get your ingredients and blenders ready sporty sisters because this recipe is going to rock your socks off!
