Are you a fan of chocolate milk?

Did your drink ready made chocolate milk or make it yourself using Nestle Quick?
I remember having both as a kid.

Now my tastes have evolved I say and I prefer really good dark chocolate in my drinks.

I wanted to make a smoothie with chocolate in it and while I was playing with ingredients in the kitchen this recipe I am sharing today, ended up being my favourite.

The recipe is easy to make and uses fairly simple ingredients. I did not add protein powder to this recipe but you could easily add it when you make it yourself.

I used good quality dark cocoa powder in the smoothie plus added a bit of cinnamon to the drink. Cinnamon may help in lowering blood sugar, is high in antioxidant potency and is a natural antimicrobial. It also tastes good!
