This Chocolate Blackberry Mojito Smoothie is a deliciously, chocolaty beverage with a hint of mint that packs a healthy punch. Loaded with protein, greens, blackberries, chia seeds and yogurt, it’s the perfect breakfast, lunch or snack that will help you stay healthy and keep you energized.
Summer always brings to mind cool, refreshing beverages, especially here in South Florida, and smoothies have got to be at the top of my list. Of, course, I drink smoothies year round for breakfast or lunch just because they’re so easy to make, delicious and packed full of healthy ingredients.
This particular smoothie came together just by accident. I needed lunch and I didn’t want to fuss so I decided on a smoothie. I gathered what I had in my fridge and pantry, including some beautiful blackberries that I had frozen for just this reason, and put my creative cap on. I also wanted to add some of my fresh mint since it was making a valiant effort to take over my indoor garden.
Not that I couldn’t use my mint to make my Pineapple Coconut Mojito and Cucumber Mojito some evening but the flavor that it adds to this smoothie helps bring a freshness to it that makes it taste like summer.
Healthy is one of the main reasons I love smoothies and adding Barleans Chocolate Greens Powder helps me get closer to my 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day. And in such a yummy way too! I mean who can turn down chocolate? If you’ve never tried it, it’s great just mixed with plain yogurt or in my Blueberry Coffee Blast & Chocolate Covered Strawberry smoothies.
CHOCOLATE BLACKBERRY MOJITO SMOOTHIE
Just look at all the delicious layers of goodness packed into this one drink. Yogurt pumps up the protein, blackberries add important antioxidants and chia seeds provide omega-3s, fiber and calcium. It’s pure goodness in a glass!
I bet you could serve this as a milkshake and no one would be the wiser. Plus it’s sugar-free, using the berries as sweeteners, and can be dairy-free by subbing out the yogurt and milk to a nut or soy based product.
So play it cool and start your day off right with this easy, healthy and delicious smoothie.
