Light Strawberry Chocolate Smoothie

So this isn’t a particularly difficult recipe post.  In fact, just about anyone can make a strawberry smoothie.

My original plan was to come up with something a little more creative,  like dark chocolate and cherries, but cherries (unlike the cherry blossoms outside) are no where to be found right now.

Strawberries on the other hand, are huge, redder than usual and on sale!

How gorgeous is this smoothie?  Couldn’t you just reach out and grab it?  The chocolate around the rim is actually honey and a teaspoon of cocoa powder.

I got a new book yesterday. Commencement  by J. Courtney Sullivan, and I can’t put it down. I highly recommend it.  I still need to read her first book Maine  that everyone raves about.

Is it 5:30 yet?  I’m ready to hop on the Metro train with my new book and call it a day!

Shopping List  (makes one large smoothie)
1 cup strawberries
1 cup Ice
1/2 cup Almond Milk (I like the Vanilla)
2 tablespoons plain Fage 0% Greek Yogurt
2 tablespoons Honey
1 teaspoon Cocoa Powder

1. In a large blender mix first 4 ingredients and 1 tablespoon of honey until smooth, about 60 seconds.

2. Before you pour your smoothie into the glass, mix remaining honey and cocoa powder on a plate and then rim your glass with it.

3. Pour smoothie into cocoa honey rimmed glass and enjoy.

    What a treat this would be. I think I just may whip so up for Liv and freeze it into pops for an after school treat. Well done!

    Congratulations on being in the Top 9! This smoothie looks SO wonderful and I so want one NOW! Chocolate and strawberries are a weakness for me. We are loving smoothies here at the 365 home and I’ve started Smoothie Saturdays since I now don’t need to BAKE everything. WOO HOO! I would love to share this with my readers, Michelle! Would that be ok?

    The honey-cocoa around the rim is very clever.
