Speaking of rich, indulgent, and chocolaty desserts that win you over every time, one of my all-time favorites is chocolate covered strawberries!

And, there's nothing wrong with indulging every once in a while, but why not just find a healthier alternative like this Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shake, so you can enjoy these irresistible flavors all the time!
It’s not only quick and easy to make, but also energizing and nourishing, containing 310 Chocolate Shake, frozen strawberries, unsweetened almond milk, cacao powder, and almond butter!

Wondering how this delicious shake can potentially benefit your health? Let’s look at some of the key ingredients, below!
Real Cocoa Flavor: 310 Chocolate Shake
For a deep, rich cocoa flavor, I added a scoop of 310 Chocolate Shake into this recipe! This tasty meal replacement shake helps create a chocolaty, creamy base in any smoothie recipe, including this one. Not only does this protein powder taste like a rich dessert, but it contains an abundance of nutrients that can provide you with a variety of health benefits.
310 Shakes are a great way to obtain the necessary micro and macronutrients that your body needs – like high-quality protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. In fact, 310 Chocolate Shake contains 20 key nutrients, including vitamins A, E, D, and K, and minerals potassium, iron, zinc, calcium, and magnesium to help support optimal wellness.
Additionally, if you’re trying to get more greens into your diet, 310 Chocolate Shake has you covered on that front, as well! With a blend of superfood greens in every serving, it makes it easy to increase your daily veggie intake!
Naturally-Sweet Indulgence: Strawberries
For a burst of naturally-sweet, fruity flavor in every sip, I had to include fresh strawberries!
Did you know that a cup of strawberries contains more vitamin C than an orange? This superfruit is packed with antioxidants, fiber, and minerals that can help the body fight against free radicals and support optimal wellness. In fact, studies even show that strawberries may contain anti-inflammatory properties that support heart health.
Plus, when it comes to taste, what easier way is there to incorporate this powerful fruit into your diet than in a chocolate and strawberry milkshake?!
Extra Chocolaty Taste: Cacao Powder
If you’re a chocolate fanatic like myself, you’ll definitely appreciate this next ingredient!
The addition of cacao powder to this recipe really intensifies the chocolate notes in 310 Chocolate Shake. I can almost promise it will thoroughly satisfy your sweet tooth (I know first hand)!
Cacao powder contains powerful antioxidants and flavanols that may support heart health and help reduce cell damage. While regular milk chocolate typically has added sugars, finding a more nutritious alternative like cacao can help to reap the health benefits!
Also keep in mind that the natural sugar from the strawberries plus the Stevia in 310 Chocolate add plenty of natural sweetness to this shake that you won’t even notice you’re using pure, unsweetened cacao powder, promise!
