This is a delicious smoothie that reminds me of the chocolate covered blueberries we bought every Christmas. Light and sweet, perfect for a summer night snack! I use fat free cocoa mix to make it lighter, or my favorite flavored cocoa mix, like chocolate hazelnut, to change it up a bit.

I was looking for a light treat that would help me use the frozen fruit I'd recently purchased (trying to eat better). I saw this and was initially turned away by the calories but decided to try an altered version. I used 1% milk and a few tablespoons of Ovaltine instead of the hot chocolate & syrup. As advertised it is very light and sweet -- a simple treat for someone with a sweet tooth. I'm not sure how chocolately the "real" version would be...mine had a nice balance. Thanks! Read More

This was.....not good. I used whole milk instead of skim because that was all I had. The packaged cocoa mix gave the smoothie an odd texture and flavor. My kids drank half of it and then refused I didn't care for it. I won't make this again. Read More

The first time I made this I made it as is and I still liked it. The second time I used one scoop of Slim Fast chocolate mix instead of the hot chocolate mix and I threw in half of a banana. I didn't use any chocolate syrup at all. I was looking for something a bit healthier and more of a breakfast substitute... so this way it just kind of amps up my slim fast drink and gets some fruit in my diet. Read More

This was ok but not the greatest. I don't like blueberries very much but was able to handle this. My boyfriend thought it was good but a bit different therefore making it hard to get used to. Otherwise it was a simple recipe and very easy to make. Read More

Made this as a snack for the grands...they both loved it! I only used one packet of hot chocolate for 3 smoothies & I added several tbp. of vanilla yogurt. I froze some of it in ice pops for them to enjoy another day. Read More
