Superfood Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie tastes like a yummy chocolate covered strawberry and loaded with good for you superfoods!
You should be super excited about this smoothie and here are 3 reasons why!
- Chocolate + Strawberries = True Love Forever!
- Simple 6 ingredient recipe
- Creamy cold chocolate goodness!
This superfood chocolate strawberry smoothie is crazy town delicious, and may just have some miraculous powers. Let me explain:
Have you ever been in a rut? I mean, duh, of course you have. It's human.
For the past few weeks, I have definitely been on the struggle bus.
Maybe it's a desperate desire for spring or maybe I am just blue. (insert tiny violin here).
Whenever I feel down in the dumps I make an active choice to do more things I love. Maybe I will get tickets to a Broadway show, book a trip, or take a new class to lift my spirits. If none of those joyful options are financially feasible for me I have tried reading an inspiring book, attempting a meditation, trying a new recipe, you get the idea.
Well, geez Louise, nothing has been working! I took an incredible manifestation yoga class with Jennifer Pastiloff last week, that totally lifted my spirits for a few hours, but the next day I was dragging my feet again!
I booked a trip to Russia, yes you read that right, I am traveling to Russia next week!! Woohoo, let the joy bells ring right? Well… in the past, typically, an upcoming travel adventure would keep me in high spirits.
Nope, not this time… still dragging around my huff and puff blanket with a pout on my face, even with a fresh Russian visa stamp in my passport!
Then, oh… it was divine intervention, my friends, I decided to travel back to my college to participate in a celebration of 20 years of dance this past weekend. It was a day packed full of master classes taught by my college dance professors.
The second I stepped back on the stage that was my home for 4 years, everything changed.
I started to move my body in ways I hadn't attempted in 10 years! I was awful like lost all of my dancing skills. I didn't care! I had the biggest smile on my face the whole time.
It was such a joy explosion that I honestly didn't know how I could let dancing disappear from my life!
Then today, while walking Ms. Penelope I could not stop moving my feet. I mean, I was literally dancing in the streets. I was like Kevin Bacon in Footloose. I felt alive.
What does all of this have to do with a smoothie? I made myself this incredible Superfood Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie the morning of my dance reunion.
What superfoods are in this smoothie?
- Chocolate – Ha! Never forget that chocolate is a superfood. I added raw cacao powder to this smoothie.
- Maca – a superfood from peru. Maca tastes a bit like malt powder (YUM!). It is beneficial for energy and vitality. It's also known as natures viagra… so 😉
Remember a whopper candy? or a malted milk ball? That's what this tastes like but with strawberry… kind of like a chocolate malt ball covered strawberry)

Now, who's to say if it was the smoothie that started the whole joy avalanche. I mean…I don't know… stranger things have happened? No? Also, maca so it really might be the smoothie!
Regardless, as I was sipping this puppy on Saturday morning and eagerly anticipating putting on my ballet shoes I kept saying, “mmm… Oh god, this is good.” So I made it again this morning, as a test. Delicious bomb! And you already heard what happened after I drank it, Dance Bomb!
