This Rocky Road Chocolate Smoothie is an easy, healthy, rich-tasting, chocolatey sweet treat that is perfect for a healthy breakfast, dessert, or an afternoon snack.
On my continuous quest for easy, healthy, delicious foods that fill me up without weighing me down, I was so happy to discover Silk® Almondmilk. Actually, it was my Mother-in-Law who introduced it to me. She used it everyday in place of regular milk for her morning oatmeal or cereal, and drank a couple of glasses of it each day.
I bought the Silk® Dark Chocolate Almondmilk and could not wait to make a smoothie with it. I wanted to add a little variation to a standard chocolate smoothie so I turned this into a Rocky Road Chocolate Smoothie by adding mini marshmallows and sliced almonds. It tasted amazing!
The chooclate smoothie was smooth, rich, chocolately, and delicious, and since it uses the Silk® Dark Chocolate Almondmilk, I can feel good about drinking it.
