What?! A smoothie that is thick, chocolatey, and creamy? Yep, that’s right. When you are trying to stay on a healthy path but crave something satisfying, this is it. It’s practically like having a chocolate milkshake…without ice cream, of course!

Fresh Tips

HOW TO
It is key to use chilled almond milk, frozen strawberries and banana to get that perfect thick, creamy consistency.

SHOPPER TIP
I strongly recommend using soft, fresh dates, such as from a bulk bin, if possible. Trader Joe’s, among other stores, sells awesome fresh Medjool dates in the refrigerated case.
