Chocolate Rouge Smoothie

Here’s my frosty Chocolate Smoothie.


It’s one luscious chocolate #smoothie, vitamin, fiber, and protein packed. And it tastes like a Wendy’s #frosty 😇❤️✌🏼

If I’d added more of this beautiful unsweetened cocoa powder by #guittardchocolate #cocoarouge #chocolate the color flavor would be more pronounced from this bean.  

If you’re thinking of adding unsweetened cocoa powder to your drinks, this brand is a must. Trust me, I’ve tried this with most of the other brands of cocoa powder. I'm posting Amazon link to product at end of recipe.


Please note that you can add ice in the order I note to the blender for better thickness. Also follow the order of the recipe as you add to the blender. It matters for the best smoothie. 

In a #vitamix blender (invest in one!), with plunger near blender, add these ingredients; 

1.5 cups coconut milk (use whatever dairy or dairy sub you prefer here).

2 scoops of your fave protein powder. (I use #TonyHorton high impact plant protein powder, vanilla flavored.)

1 heaping teaspoon of the rouge cocoa powder. More if you’d like a darker chocolate. And see below noting the addition of ice. If you add ice, use 2 teaspoons of the cocoa powder instead of one. 

A few grains of salt. 

1 cup of frozen organic baby kale.  (Fresh this equates to  2 cups) ❤️

…Put your huge bag of kale in the freezer. It shrinks! You easily break it up in your hands. No prep, easy access, you know you won’t waste it, and the kale from the freezer is much more nutrient dense. Total #lifehack

Yea, I know what it looks like, lol.

2 cups frozen pineapple cubes (Costco has an amazing choice of organic frozen fruits. Much less expensive than traditional grocery stores.)

Because those cubes are like rocks, put the pineapple in the microwave for 20-30 seconds to partially soften before adding to blender.  

1-2 cups ice, if you want a thicker consistency. Keep in mind that adding ice will slightly decrease the other flavors. You can adjust for that by adding a bit more of each ingredient, 1O% more is a good ratio…But for the cocoa, add an additional teaspoon for a total of 2 teaspoons. 

1 tablespoon honey or agave syrup

1 cup of berries, I prefer blueberries.  (Again, I use the options from #costco

Top with 1/2 additional coconut milk (or other dairy/non dairy options)

Blend in smoothie setting, using the plunger if needed) 

Blend a bit more if the ingredients aren’t completely blended. 

Serves 2

To your health!
