Chocolate berry smoothie that tastes like dessert recipe
This chocolate berry dessert smoothie is actually really easy to make. It benefits from the fact you can use frozen fruit if you prefer, which means it is easier to keep the ingredients on hand. Cream cheese also usually lasts quite a long time, so you can easily make another cream cheese smoothie!
Philadelphia / Cream cheese.
Blueberries – You can use frozen or fresh blueberries for this blueberry smoothie.
Blackberries – You can use frozen or fresh blackberries for this blackberry smoothie.
Heavy / Double Cream – If you don’t have heavy / double cream, you could increase the amount of Philadelphia you put in tot he smoothie, and slightly increase the amount of water. That will give you a similar effect to the cream.
Dark Chocolate – If you are restricting the amount of carbs and sugar you consume, then you need to use a very dark chocolate. I like to use Lindt 90% dark chocolate, as it is very low carb, which helps when making Keto smoothies.
First things first, prepare the ingredients for your blueberry blackberry smoothie.
If you are using frozen blackberries, be sure to blend them first so that they mix well in to the final berry chocolate smoothie.
Add the chocolate and blend. I recommend blending this now as much as you can, because otherwise your blender may struggle to blend it into the final blackberry smoothie.
Add the blueberries. Unlike with the blackberries, I do not recommend blending them before starting with the other ingredients, because they will mix fine in to the final chocolate blueberry smoothie.
Add the Philadelphia cream cheese.
Add the heavy / double cream.
Add the Stevia or Erythritol.
Add the water.
You now have an amazing chocolate berry dessert smoothie! Enjoy!
