If there was something that I would maybe consider myself addicted to it might just be this smoothie, right here. This is our go-to post workout smoothie, our “we want a treat” smoothie, our “I don’t know what else to make for breakfast” smoothie, and our “can we please just have some chocolate” smoothie. It’s soo good!
For the LONGEST time I would go to Costco and dream about owning a Vitamix Blender. I was one of those annoying people that waited by the demonstrator for just one more sample. Finally I convinced my husband that it would help not only us eat better and be more healthy but would also benefit our children as well. That’s when he caved….and then the heavens opened and I heard angels singing…ok, maybe it wasn’t that dramatic, but you get the picture. I was SO EXCITED! I’m not sure if there’s a day that has gone by that we haven’t used it! We use it all the time! But, that’s another post for another day. You’re here to learn how to make this little chocolate dream drink huh?! Ok. Here you go. Enjoy!
