Healthy Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

As a devout chocolate lover with a major sweet tooth, I find it difficult to create a healthy dessert that actually delivers the same rich flavor as my favorite treats. Plus, I'd rather indulge in something a little less healthy than keep snacking on options that may be more nutritious but don't truly satisfy. Balance is everything, right?

However, it is possible to nail a delicious flavor without sacrificing your nutrition goals—for instance, mbg's chocolate beauty & gut collagen+ has a rich, chocolatey taste thanks to organic cocoa and 100% organic monk fruit extract (one reviewer even swears the powder helped replace her chocolate cravings), and it froths up like a dream. In fact, when blended, shoppers even say it tastes "just like a Wendy's frosty."

So, why not create said frosty for a healthy dessert alternative? I snagged the below recipe from mbg's assistant beauty editor Hannah Frye (she once worked in a smoothie shop, so I trust whatever concoction she cobbles together is absolutely great), and, no lie, it tastes just like a peanut butter cup. Plus, with collagen's ability to support skin elasticity and hydration levels and promote youthful texture, it delivers beauty benefits, too.* File this under desserts that satisfy your post-dinner cravings and enhance your health.
