Sweet and salty chocolate goodness, this salted chocolate smoothie is like heaven on a hot day. Thick and creamy, you’ll almost think you are eating a shake!
When I shared my cranberry smoothie recipe, Jennie G left me a lovely comment asking if I had ever used ice cubes in my smoothies to make them more shake-like.
I hadn’t so I had to give it a whirl.
Ya’ll that simple change turned my normal smoothies into thick rich lusciousness. I turned into a smoothie drinking monster.
What you need to make this Chocolate Smoothie
- ice cubes
- milk of choice
- cacao powder
- sea salt
I’m not kidding, I’ve upped our raw milk a half gallon a week to help with this new addiction. I also started adding salt and yes mam, I’ve drunk this Salted Chocolate Smoothie almost every single day this week.
It’s simple, tasty and I promise you’ll lick the spoon.

Have you tried freezing milk or herbal tea in cubes and adding those to your smoothie?
I haven’t! I’ll have to try this soon. Thanks for the tip Marianne 🙂
Your smoothie definitely equals yum!
This looks awesome! I’ve been eating salted chocolate bar with almonds lately and I love the chocolate – salt combo, this smoothie will be a much healthier way to indulge!
It’s so simple and yummy 🙂 Thanks Kari
I have a weakness for anything salted and sweet. Chocolate, caramel, it doesn’t matter. The combo is just perfect.
This sounds divine!
That’s funny because I’ve always added ice to my smoothies or coffee fraps etc., I’ve often had people tell me that my smoothies are ‘too thick’! I always felt that without the ice I was just drinking flavored run down yogurt or milk 🙂
My husband is a huge smoothie kick ever since we got a Blendtec so I’ll be sharing this recipe with him asap!
This was crazy good. I was craving a sweet or salty snack this afternoon and made this smoothie, but used frozen banana chunks instead of fresh banana and ice cubes, and unsweetened almond milk. Added a dash of pure vanilla extract and a bit of coconut sugar because I was afraid it wouldn’t be sweet enough. Next time I’ll try it without adding any sweetener.
Yeah! This is my favorite smoothie and I make it once a week 🙂
