What’s cooking at the abode of the Chocolate-Covered Vegan? Why, something chocolate-covered, of course!

Just your run-of-the-mill, chocolate-covered strawberry smoothie (featuring strawberries and chocolate almond milk as the main players… sometimes I throw a banana in there, too).

Yeah, yeah– everyone knows how to make a chocolate-strawberry smoothie. But I don’t have time for an elaborate post today.

I’ll tell you what– come back for my next post, and you will be rewarded with some juicy relationship gossip ;o).

Tara, Billy, Bonnie, Gemma, Shelby, Allison, Emma, and anyone else to whom I owe an email—I will email soooon!!! Sorry it’s taken me such a long time! (Seems I’m as bad of an emailer as I am a commenter… speaking of which, someday soon I will catch up on commenting too.)

Katie is the baker, photographer, and author of the popular blog Chocolate-Covered Katie. Her favorite food is chocolate, and she believes in eating a balanced diet that includes dessert every single day. More about Katie—>

    SERIOUSLY!! no need to apologise!! (im a terrible speller by the way) and anyways that looks AMAZING, you might think alot of people have made that but im not one of them! SURELY i will have to make it soon, but i ALSO came here to congradulate you on your veganism! ive been looking at having a vegan diet (diet meaning what i eat daily) but its so hard to have to look up ingredents to make sure it doesnt contain animals-but i would LOVE to i just think its so sad and cruel to eat animals and some people dont even think about what their eating do you ever find it strange that when someones eating a cow they call it steak and not cow or pig they call it pork and NOT pig (hmmm….maybe because they dont want to think their eating a killed cow or pig) guilt maybe? but anyways im again here to thank you for commenting on my blog1 YOUR such a sweetheart! <3

    Oops! That last comment from “Mean Mel” was really me! I’m at work and using the reception’s computer. Sorry!

  8. Katy says:

    I love smoothies! Perfect for this hot weather we’ve been having!

  9. magpie says:

    Yumm – I adore chocolate almond milk :)

  10. Alice (in Veganland) says:

    that doesn’t look like chocolate “milk”! you need more chocolate! hehe

  11. ~randi~ says:

    Actually for some reason, I never thought of that! I shall try this smoothie for sure. YUM!

  12. Kati says:

    Hey, I just made a smoothie post, too! Must be it really is that time of year…

  13. Ricki says:

    I must be the last person on the planet to come to this combination of flavors–but have never had it! Now, of course, I must. :)

  14. Vegan On Stage says:

    yummm chocolate almond milk…I wish i wasnt allergic… DANM!!!!
    on your previous post…

    I think thats so awesome that your little cousin has gone veg!!! its such a hard choice for someone so young…especially a boy (im not sure why but for some reason, my guy friends are wayyy more likely to eat meat than my girlfriends)


  15. Kati says:

    Of course you can add me to your blogroll!

    That’s so cool about your cousin, too. Veggies of the next generation!

  16. Cody says:

    I love smoothies, but they always give me a stomachache for some reason. I don’t understand why fruit is okay, soymilk is okay… but together, they are an assault on my tummy.

  17. kristin s says:

    that smoothie sounds good.. i havent made one in a while!

    I think great minds think alike… and head to whole foods even when its raining cats and dogs! haha but that was one of the worst storms ever!! I saw you in the frozen foods aisle again, too! i think you might have seen me also, but i wasnt sure. i’m tall with curly brown hair.

  18. selina says:

    how is it that i never thought to make a strawberry chocolate smoothie??

  19. Anonymous says:


    what kind/brand of almond milk do you use? I am looking for an organic unsweetened almond milk with no carrageenan, but it’s near impossible to find! Just curious about what brand you are using. Thanks so much! :)

  20. Simple and Divine says:

    Twin! Stop that negative talk NOW! :) You’re wonderful. Period :)

    (PS) My mom loves the unsweetened chocolate almond milk… Me? I think it tastes so bland!
    OMG, heat it up in the micro and it’s amazing!

  21. aTxVegn says:

    Of course you would make your strawberry smoothie with chocolate milk – brilliant!

  22. loveofoats says:

    yummy smoothie… I have made a similar one w/ chocolate whey powder & vanilla almond milk… Now I want to try the chocolate almond milk – sounds & looks delish!

  23. Avery Yale Kamila says:

    That smoothie looks and sounds so delicious!

  24. CeciLiA says:

    yummoi! Nothing beats smoothie … ok, maybe not in this weather :0( I recently found out that I can CUSTOMIZE my own smoothie at a local juice bar (I feel so SPECIAL) and strawberries and banana are always in my mix!!

    OOooolala… a JUICY relationship gossip?! Gosh, I love gossiping (yea, I’m nosey!) hehehe…. Hope you have a great day ;0)

  25. Caitlin says:

    Mmm, that sounds delicious! I’ve been making smoothies for breakfast almost every day, but I never add chocolate to them (just fruit and sometimes kale)–I think tomorrow I’ll make one with chocolate for a special treat, though! Sounds yummy. Lol, international spy–I like that idea! Sounds much more exciting than international insurance. :)

  26. The Voracious Vegan says:

    Chocolate and strawberries….such a lovely combination!

  27. shellyfish says:

    Your blender must love you for putting such yummy things inside!

  28. Lizzy says:

    I was looking at that post this morning and was like “Noooo, why did I eat my last strawberries yesterday? I want that exact same smoothie now!” =p

    I think I must try almond milk real soon. There’s only the regular one available, but it’s been smiling at me from the cupboards ever since I read everyone raving about it 😉

  29. Jennifer says:

    That smoothie sounds perfect. I just tried the chocolate almond milk for the first time recently and it is really good!

  30. Vegan_Noodle says:

    I love chocolate milk in my smoothies!!
    I am pretty sure I owe YOU an email!! Ugh, too many things to do.
    Can’t wait to hear a little gossip…

  31. Traci Anne says:

    Sugarplum, is there a ring on your sweet little vegan finger? :)

  32. ChocolateCoveredVegan says:

    Hmmm, I might have seen you… but since I didn’t know it was you, it didn’t stand out in my memory. I can’t believe we keep meeting in the frozen-food section! Next time I’m there, I’m totally going to be on the lookout for you, and I will probably make an idiot out of myself by stopping every single girl with brown curly hair and asking if it’s you!

    Sorry, I can’t help :o(
    I use Almond Breeze, but it does have carrageenan in the ingredients.

    Hahaha it’s not an engagement ring, if that’s what you mean!

  33. The Veganette says:

    I got a brand new magic bullet-esque food processor/blender yesterday and have been searching for good smoothie recipes all day…should have known you would have something great!

    My inagural smoothie was 1 banana, 1/2 c soy yogurt, lite silken tofu, almond butter, and flax seeds…yummm! I am going to try yours tonight!!

  34. Cherry says:

    What a great combination of flavors! I love almond milk.
