Velvety Chocolate Smoooooooooothie

This. Is. The. Ultimate. Chocolate. Smoothie.

That’s all I have to say, besides grab a straw and get your blender on!

(Unless you are one of the unfortunate individuals who walk this earth with a chocolate allergy. In that case, I express my utmost sympathy. Though I’ve always kinda preferred caramel or vanilla anyway. That is, until I tried this

CHOCOLATE SMOOTHIE!!! You totally have to try this. If you are into simple chocolate desserts like my mom, and don’t want any interesting flavors getting in the way of your chocolate fix, this smoothie will hit the spot. If you are into sophisticated flavors, perhaps your well-rounded palate will detect the hints of blackberry and almond hiding in the background of each delicious sip of this smoothie. If you’re one of the select few who claim not to like chocolate, just humor me and try just a tiny sip of this lucious libation and you will never again scoff at chocolate.

I could write many chapters describing and serenading this smoothie, but I kinda promised I wouldn’t write much in this post, plus I know by this point you must be practically zombified, salivating at the computer screen, with tiny cups full of sweet chocolate drink twirling in your eyes like something out of a cartoon. So without further ado, I present….

Velvety Chocolate Smoooooooooothie

The texture of this smoothie is very, well, smooth, hence the name.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 Jello pudding snack cup, “Original” chocolate vanilla swirls flavor
  • 2 tbsps Justin’s chocolate almond butter (I used a single-serve squeeze pack, found in an odd corner of Whole Foods market. After one sip of this smoothie one of my first thoughts was, I need to go get a whole tub of this almond butter stuff!)
  • 1 tbsp blackberry jam
  • 5-6 ice cubes

Directions:

Blend until satisfyingly, serenely, superbly, sublimely smooth. Sip with a spoon and/or straw!

  1. More esoteric ingredients that I don’t have! Otherwise I’d make it right now.

    1. I highly recommend trying it, even substituting the almond butter for peanut butter or whatever you happen to have around the house. It will probably still be good.

  2. very interesting! Do you always use jam in your smoothies? Do you use it as a natural sweetener?

    1. I don’t always use jam, but it is a good sweetener, especially the St. Dalfour’s pear jam I recently bought. That is made using no sugar except the natural sugar derived from real fruit. It is so good in fruit smoothies as well!
