I made this smoothie for Cooper and I tonight. It is Saturday night and I thought we deserved a treat. It has milk and greek yoghurt in it, so it part smoothie and part shake and it tastes lush.
A thick, smooth chocolate drink inspired by memories of the Chocolate and Raspberry Sorbet I made last October. I had it in my mind today after talking to Kavey about her ice cream challenge 'Bloggers Scream for Ice Cream'. The topic this month is Sorbets, Granitas, Shaved Ice Desserts, Slushies and Spoom! I have never heard of spoom, but I have enjoyed a fair few sorbets, which I am rather partial to. I don't think I have made a sorbet yet I haven't enjoyed.
* Mango, Rose Wine & Cinnamon Sorbet
* Pear Sorbet
* Chocolate Orange Sorbet
* Melon, Peach & Red Wine Sorbet
They were all good. In fact great. Vastly superior! But none compare to the Chocolate and Raspberry Sorbet. It is so good that it can make you cry. It is a wee fibber too and it will try to persuade you that it is the creamiest of ice creams. So in it's honour I give you the Choco Snazzle Smoothie Shake.
Choco Snazzle Smoothie Shake
A suitably fancy name for a suitably fancy smoothie. Thick, smooth chocolate and raspberry delight. Sweet with a touch of tart. Luxury in a glass.
- 125g raspberries
- ¼ cup/60ml freshly squeezed orange juice
- 3 tsp cocoa powder
- 2-3 tsp runny honey (depending on how sweet you would like your smoothie to be)
- ¼ cup/60ml greek yoghurt
- ½ cup/120ml semi-skimmed milk
1. Whizz up all the ingredients. Taste to see if you would like a little more honey to sweeten the drink. If it is a little thick for your liking, then add more milk and whizz again.2. Pour and serve. 3. Enjoy!

If you are admiring my lovely glass, I can tell you it is from The Pampered Chef. It is one of a set of four Dots Stemware that I was lucky enough to win in a competition over at Pebble Soup which is written by the lovely Solange. I have really enjoyed using my glasses and they even survived a trip through the dishwasher, courtesy of my
I am submitting my smoothie to Ren's Family Friendly Fridays. I am a little late in posting it as a Friday event, but it is also a monthly event, so I am hoping we can look on it as super keen and early for next Friday.
