Chocolate S’mores Smoothie to Kick Off Summer

Chocolate S'mores Smoothie by FamilySpice.com

Most of the time, what I find in the produce aisle inspires me in the kitchen. And with summer here, inspiration can be found everywhere. My favorite season, hands down, is summer. I love the warm weather, the laid back schedule and all of the fun summer foods my family and I enjoy during these months. Summer is just the best time of the year.

The summer months also means we are making smoothies all the time. I love how easy they are to prepare and the kids love a cold, frothy treat for breakfast or as a snack. I can sneak in all kinds of secret healthy stuff in a smoothie and all the kids see is something delicious to eat.

I typically add protein powder to our smoothies, but many of them have a bad after-taste that is so not kid-friendly. And since pasteurized eggs from Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs became readily available in San Diego, I now like to drop in a raw egg in the smoothie for added protein. The kids are safe from salmonella poisoning and they get the protein they need without the bad taste. It’s a win-win for all of us.

I asked my eldest, The Professor, for a new smoothie flavor he would like this summer. He thought long and hard and finally shouted, “I want a s’mores smoothie!”

Of course, he did. What shouts out SUMMER better than a chocolate s’mores smoothie?

This smoothie uses unsweetened cocoa power. To sweeten the smoothie, I used ripe bananas and a bit of honey. Feel free to adjust the sweetness to your taste buds. I wanted a healthy yet fun snack, so I kept the smoothie mildly sweet. Plus, it is garnished with graham cracker crumbs and topped with a flaming marshmallow. Why add even more sugar? Feel free to substitute with mini marshmallows, a dollap of marshmallow cream or nothing extra at all.

Now resume your summer fun.

    These would make one feel like a kid again! What a fun, fun treat!

  5. What could be better than family around the campfire with this flaming treat! What a creative twist to a summer favorite!

  6. The toasted marshmallow and the graham cracker crumb crust on this make this really look like quite the dessert! Good to know its not a sugar bomb but instead is sweetened with bananas and honey, definitely looks a lot worse for you than it is :)

    • My kids wanted it sweeter, but I reminded them it was a nutritious smoothie and not a milk shake!

  7. I want to face plant into this smoothie, very badly!
