Strawberry Chocolate Shake Without Chocolate Syrup

OK so I totally admit that there are a few comfort foods I miss from before I started eating healthier. Pizza and chocolate shakes are at the top of the list. I know. Comfort food is a killer when it comes to food cravings. Have you ever looked at the ingredients in your typical chocolate syrup you’d find at the store? If you guessed that high fructose corn syrup would be the very first one, you’d be right. Thankfully, there’s a healthier version.

Strawberry Chocolate Shake Without Chocolate Syrup

There are a lot of ways you can enjoy a chocolate shake without chocolate syrup but the most popular is to simply melt your healthy chocolate first. You could also choose to use a chocolate protein powder or a raw cacao powder instead. If you choose to use a cocoa powder, please look at the ingredients and opt for an organic one.

Ice cream is not all that healthy for the most part. It tends to be super high in sugar and artificial ingredients. With this recipe, I have substituted Greek yogurt (plain) for the ice cream. This lowers the sugar and adds needed protein. If you absolutely must use ice cream, buy an organic version that isn’t high in sugar.

Because I love the combination of strawberries and chocolate, I’ve used frozen strawberries in this recipe. You can substitute a frozen banana instead if you’d prefer. It’s all up to you.

  1. That looks so delicious. I am seriously craving strawberries now. (And chocolate).

  2. Did I miss it – where is the chocolate? Is it the mega chuncks? I am not familiar with that product.
    I love having smoothies all year long too.

  3. This looks absolutely delicious.  I have never tried organic whole milk Greek yogurt. It must be delicious and filling too

  4. I will really try this Strawberry Chocolate shake. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  5. my daughter will love this recipe-she loves chocolate and strawberries-and according to her there is no better combination in the world.  I hadn’t heard of mega chunks before-but I am all for a healthy alternative to too much sugar-thanks!

  6. I Just tried it, really delicious! Thanks 🙂

  7. Thanks so much for sharing your awesome Shake with Full Plate Thursday, hope to see you again soon!
