Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie Recipe

I don’t know about you, but one of my most favourite flavour combinations is chocolate and raspberries. I don’t care how they come, whether they are in brownies, cheesecakes, or chocolate bars — there is just something about the smooth creamy chocolate mixed with the tart, sweet raspberries! That’s why I love this chocolate and raspberry smoothie recipe so much. I just can’t get enough of it!

It is really simple to make, as most smoothies are, and calls for just three ingredients. All you need is milk, chocolate ice cream and fresh or frozen raspberries!

Now, I like to buy frozen raspberries for a few reasons. Firstly, they are a fraction of the price of their fresh counterparts. You can buy a big packet of frozen raspberries for about three or four dollars, while the last time I bought a tiny punnet of fresh raspberries they were eight dollars! Also, frozen fruit lasts a long time. You take your eye off that $8 punnet of fresh raspberries and they will go bad quickly. Or the kids will demolish them, either/or. That’s why I prefer to use frozen berries where I can keep control of them!

On to the chocolate ice cream. If you would like to make a low fat/sugar version of this smoothie, you’ll need to purchase some low fat/sugar chocolate ice cream for the recipe.

As naughty as this smoothie might sound, there is no added sugar and you can use skim or light milk. So it’s really just the ice cream that could be considered unhealthy. If you can find a healthier alternative then absolutely use that instead.

To make the smoothie, simply place all the ingredients into a blender or smoothie maker and blitz until smooth. Add a little extra milk to reach your desired consistency and you’re done! Pour into our 140ml reusable pouches and enjoy!
