Boozy Chocolate-Covered Raspberry Smoothies are the one cocktail that’ll satisfy your indulgent side without ruining all the work you’ve put into that summer bod. No one will even realize these smoothie cocktails are so healthy!
I just made you a healthy way to do cocktail hour (which means it’s ok to hit you with two cocktails this week, right?). Yep, I committed to making a healthy cocktail, or as my bestie Susannah lovingly calls it, “an oxymoron smoothie.”
You all KNOW me. I get on the healthy train as much as I can, but when it comes to my cocktails… Heaven help me, I can’t give them up. My affinity for cocktail hour at the end of the day is just too strong and I refuse to give it up. I also refuse to give up patio day drinking when the weather gets nice.
So what’s a girl to do when she wants to stay on track and still indulge?
I make healthy things a little sinful.
This is where my secret weapon comes in – creamy Dream Ultimate Almond.
If you are a fan of almond milk and haven’t tried Dream Ultimate Almond yet, you need to walk run to the store right now and get yourself some. Of all the almond milks I’ve tried, Dream Ultimate Almond is the creamiest and smoothest of them all, whether you’re trying sweetened, unsweetened, or my personal fav, vanilla. That’s why it works SO well in drinks and smoothies.
Sipping on this smoothie cocktail is like devouring a bowl full of chocolate-covered raspberries and coming out of the binge with a nice little buzz. It’s a great way to enjoy your libations with a healthy twist (there’s 20 grams of almonds in every serving!) and honestly, I can’t think of a better way to kick off a day of day drinking.
I mean, you’re getting your food base started WHILE you drink. #winning
