I love a good chocolate shake!! I can see my Dad nodding in agreement to that.

Note to Cameron: You’ll have to whip this up for you and Dad with the Magic Bullet! Love you!

I was a little worried I already had a recipe with the name triple chocolate, but it turns out I’m good.

My other EPIC and very popular chocolate smoothie recipe is called Chocolate Shake for Dinner.

This is not as big, but it is just as tasty, nutritious, and food-gasmic.

Three chocolates utilized are 🍫 Equal Exchange organic baking cocoa powder (what I’m using currently), 🍫 chocolate PB2, and 🍫 Manitoba Harvest’s chocolate hemp protein powder.

These tres amigos add TONS of fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals to your morning smoothie. The balance of fiber, protein, and fat helps our bodies absorb and assimilate all of those vitamins and minerals.

When I eat healthy-focused food it is definitely for the health, but also for the flavor. The only thing I gag down for health’s sake is a potent shot of green powder mixed with juice. By this point I actually kind of like those too.

Today’s triple chocolate smoothie is satisfyingly thick and will still go through your standard glass or plastic straw.

The frozen strawberries add a subtle sweet berry flavor and chill the temperature making it very refreshing.

    Those nutritional stats are killer! This has my name written all over it. Any time I can get away with dessert for dinner, I’m on board, and especially if it’s secretly so healthy.
