This dark chocolate orange smoothie is rich, creamy, velvety and packed full of good for you ingredients that make it the perfect frozen afternoon treat or after workout snack.
I absolutely love the combination of orange and chocolate. Although there isn’t much that doesn’t go with chocolate, I especially love the citrus tang of orange with rich, velvety dark chocolate.
This recipe has a few basic ingredients but together makes a nutrition dense and decadent afternoon treat or after workout snack. Throw in a handful of spinach and you can have it for breakfast too.
The recipe makes the smoothie quite thick (the way that I like it) but if you want a thinner smoothie, just add a bit more milk until you’ve reached the desired consistency.
What’s your favourite chocolate combination?
