raw chocolate velvet smoothie

Who needs to buy a chocolate milkshake, thickshake or ice-cream drink concoction when this healthy smoothie tastes SO MUCH better and it’s good for you (you’ll be satisfying your chocolate craving while sneaking in some veggie goodness thanks to the baby spinach. Plus, blending the chia seeds makes them more easily absorbed in the body).

Yep, even ice-cream lovers won’t be able to tell it’s not really ice-cream! Bonus: it’s super healthy as it’s rich in healthy fats, vitamins, antioxidants and magnesium 🙂
