Best Chocolate Smoothie Ingredients
The fastest way to make a chocolate smoothie is just water, ice and Bone Broth Collagen Chocolate powder. But if you want to up the taste AND the nutrients, you can also use the following ingredients. They also help deliver a balanced smoothie with great texture.
Unsweetened almond milk makes for a great base, as it’s thick and creamy with a hint of almond taste. Depending on the brand, it typically provides vitamin E, vitamin D and some calcium.
Rolled oats add that little bit of texture, plus they can offer some fiber, trace minerals and plant-based protein.
Coconut oil adds fats, in particular medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs). For some more genuine dark chocolate taste, we turn to cocoa powder, which (depending on the brand) generally has antioxidants, including several polyphenols — such as flavonoids and phenylethylamine.
Lastly, Medjool dates are used for sweetness. Plus, they offer some vitamins, minerals and fiber.
