Chocolate Covered Strawberry Frappe

OK, the strawberries aren’t exactly chocolate “covered”  but that’s the taste this reminded me of. If you feel like having something chocolatey but not too rich or high in calories, not to mention quick, this is great for satisfying those cravings. (If you don’t mind the calories, go for this one or this :D)

You can see that I spilled it, trying to get a better picture angle. Sigh.

1/2c strawberries, frozen

1/2c ice

1c milk

3 -4 TBS chocolate syrup

(Here is how to make homemade chocolate syrup!)

Blend it all together! How easy is that?

This is my submission to Virtual Party – Beverages hosted by US Masala and from my home kitchen.

Smoothie is one of those things which gives a nice payoff for very little effort. A recipe is not needed, just throw in your favorite (blendable) fruits and a little water. Here is one of our favorites… (Since fresh summer fruits are scarce, I have used frozen.)

For 2 big glasses:

1 lg or 2 medium bananas

1/2c frozen blueberries (still frozen, I like the slushy chill that it gives)

1c frozen strawberries (thawed)

Isn't that a gorgeous color?

1c frozen mangoes (thawed) or 1/2c mango puree

2c water

Add the strawberries and mango to the blender first. Then the bananas and blueberries.        Blend a little, then add the water. Continue grinding until its a smooth consistency.                    Add more water if you like. You could also add protein powder or honey,  but  I think its sweet enough just as it is!  Yummy, filling, healthy and quick.   What more can you ask? 🙂

P.S.

If you want to get “really” healthy, toss in a handful of baby spinach leaves. Trust me, you won’t notice its there.
