"Sinless" Chocolate Smoothies

I don't actually believe that consumption of chocolate is a sin, unless you indulge in it too much. However, the above is the title of a new recipe book I bought recently. For the most part the recipes pass muster as recipes I would consider reasonably healthy. There is no doubt that they taste good!

Here's one I tried today:

3 cups chocolate soy milk
2 frozen bananas, in chunks
10 large frozen strawberries
2 tablespoons dutch cocoa powder (the unsweetened kind)


Now, you can fiddle with the amount of fluids you use and if you use a bit less, you can actually get something that resembles soft serve ice cream without the loads of sugar.

It will disappear fast if you have kids helping you consume it.

It all sounds good except the soy... I steer clear of that stuff and use raw (real) milk instead. :)

Cheryl, if you ever say anything back to others who comment, I don't know where to see it. Perhaps you're just not saying anything, but I can't figure out how your blog works with the comment thing...
