CHOCOLATE BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE
Before you start:
If you don’t have vanilla Greek yogurt on-hand, you could absolutely use plain Greek yogurt and just a few drops of vanilla extract.
The dash of cinnamon gives the chocolate blueberry smoothie recipe a unique depth of flavor. It is not necessary, but we recommend trying the recipe with it before you decide to omit it for the next time.
Be sure to blend long enough for the skins of the blueberries to get well chopped.
- ¾ cup non-fat milk
- ½ cup non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1¼ cups fresh blueberries
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- dash cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon honey or agave syrup
- blueberries for garnish
Place all ingredients (except garnish) in the blender in the order listed. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and garnish.
