Strawberry Chocolate Smoothie {RECIPE}



A Valentine's Day treat from 12-year-old homeschooler, Angelica!

Strawberries + Chocolate = Valentine Smoothies!

These smoothies are easy, sweet and colorful! Adding small chocolate hearts only make them cuter, don’t ya think? 


Use frozen fruit instead of ice to boost the nutritional value, thicken the smoothie naturally and avoid using sugar.
