Raise your hand if you love chocolate covered strawberries… Are you raising your hand? If so, you’ll love this Dark Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie! I’m definitely a believer that chocolate makes just about everything and anything better, and a healthy morning smoothie is no exception!

Deceivingly Nutritious

This Dark Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie is a perfect sweet treat to make for your sweetie on Valentine’s Day. It looks and tastes deceivingly decadent, but is actually made with healthy Greek yogurt, frozen berries, and delicious dark cocoa powder for a bold chocolate taste.

The unsweetened dark cocoa powder contains flavonoids, which act as antioxidants in plants and can reduce inflammation without the added sugar most chocolate squares contain. So, yeah, this decadent Valentine’s Day treat is actually good for you!

Recipe Tips & Tricks

In the spirit of this day of love, stick two straws in this smoothie so you can share with your Valentine. After all, this recipe makes enough for two! Who knew a healthy Valentine’s Day treat could be this sweet?!

When you make this smoothie, be sure to use frozen strawberries to get the thick and frosty consistency without needing to add any ice. If you only have fresh berries on hand, add about 1/2 cup of ice so that you can get the perfect thickness.

If you can’t get enough of this sweet Valentine’s Day treat, head over to Lively Table for another yummy version – Kaleigh’s White Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie!

    Dessert and breakfast all in one! Definitely treating myself to this ASAP. It’s like chocolate covered strawberries in drinkable form!

  4. This smoothie looks heavenly ANY day but this is such a super cute idea for Valentine’s Day! This dark chocolate looks absolutely divine. Drooling 🙂

  5. 5 stars
    Definitely need this delicious smoothie! Craving all of the chocolate strawberry things right now (especially with Valentine’s day around the corner)!

  6. A classic twist on a Valentine’s Day favorite and a favorite smoothie combo. I don’t usually put yogurt in smoothies but will have to try it and adapt this one. I have a strawberry almond milk yogurt in the fridge that might be good in here.

    1. Definitely a favorite combo! I think the strawberry almond milk yogurt would be great in this – maybe it will add a bit of chocolate covered almond flavor 😉 LMK if you try it Sarah!

  7. I love the way you decorated this with such a pretty strawberry AND that the smoothie is thick enough to support it! Shake-like smoothies are my favorite.

  8. 5 stars
    This is so perfect for Valentine’s Day! No matter how busy you are, you can easily whip this up and take it to go! Love it!
