5 Dessert Smoothie Recipes

If you are not really a big fan of liquid meals, then maybe slightly thicker smoothie varieties could be the right choice for you.

1. Thick chocolate smoothie with avocado and chia seeds

I haven’t eaten avocado in a while. In fact, I can’t say I’m sick of it; I’ve simply put it out of my mind. Then I once bought a few pieces and treated my friends to a smoothie. It’s true, when I asked them “Do you want a smoothie?”, they looked at me a little in disbelief, but they weren’t surprised by my “Oh, why am I even asking you!? I’ll make it, so if you don’t want it or don’t like it, don’t eat it.” „It’s really simple; the only thing that matters is that my friends are open to my food games. Everything else is left to the imagination…

This is how I mixed:

  •     1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  •     1 banana
  •     1 spoon of honey
  •     1/2 avocado
  •     1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  •     150 ml + 3 tablespoons oat milk
  •     a couple of ice cubes
  •     1 tablespoon of coarsely grated chocolate, for decoration

First, I mixed chia seeds and 3 tablespoons of milk in a bowl and let it stand for about 15 minutes. Then I shook the chia seeds, which had turned into a gelatinous mixture in the milk, into a blender and added all the other ingredients (except the grated chocolate) and blended until I got a creamy mixture.

I added milk little by little until I got the desired thickness. If you want it to be thicker, 150 ml will be too much for you. I poured it into glasses and sprinkled pieces of chocolate on top. What did the guests say? And what do you think?

Would you like to save something that is light, delicious, yet nutritious for your guests? With this recipe, you can be sure that you’ll want another dessert in no time.

2. Morning dose of love: Protein smoothie for a good day!

Sometimes all I want for breakfast is a smoothie! Ok, maybe not just smoothies, but you’re on a decent site, so the content must remain decent. So, a seemingly ordinary Thursday started with a smoothie. And after the smoothie, nothing was the same. Why? This smoothie was really good.  Soooo! The recipe is actually very simple; you need oatmeal, fruit, a good blender, and a little love.

  •      1 banana
  •     2 handfuls of spinach
  •     2 handfuls of frozen berries or forest fruits
  •     4 tablespoons of oatmeal
  •     2 scoops of whey protein, flavor as desired
  •     2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  •     250 ml of water

Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix until you get a creamy, uniform mixture. If desired, add more water, depending on how thick you want it to be. You add love at the end, when you pour into the glasses. This is a quantity for two. And what else do you need for breakfast?

Oh yes, smoothies aren’t just reserved for tall glasses! Lovers of bowls and spoons could come to their own conclusion.

3. Chocolate smoothie

For all those who want a stronger taste, here is a chocolate smoothie. A smoothie with a small amount of carbohydrates and minimal calories this combination makes a great snack that will allow you to last until the next meal. You can substitute xanthan gum with psyllium husks or chia seeds, depending on your desired texture and goals. Here, xanthan is added to give it a certain thickness and creaminess.
