At the time of publication, all recipes were free of the allergens listed as being free of in the title (i.e. soy-free, milk-free, etc.), and all other information shared was accurate to the best of my knowledge.
Though I strive to update outdated information quickly and work diligently to make sure you have the most accurate information possible at all times, it is your duty to double check labels EVERY TIME to ensure that the ingredients you use are SAFE FOR YOU.
Your doctor or allergist should also be your first go-to for information on how to handle your medical needs. That being said, if you DO notice an error, please send me an email letting me know (tell me what page or recipe the error is on, what the error is, etc.), and I will correct the error ASAP.
Thank you so much!

Please Be Advised:
I make sure all of my recipes use foods that are free of the allergens they say they are free of. You will need to do the same. For help with this, please see the appropriate "Alternative Names" page for the allergen(s) you need the recipe free of.

Sweets For My Sweetie: Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Smoothies (Soy, Wheat, Nut, Egg and Fish-Free, Can Be Milk-Free)

Welcome to the second day of
with Natural and Free, Glued To My Crafts and Vanessa's Place!

I hope you all are enjoying this link-up as much as I am!  Have you been over to Stacey's and Vanessa's blogs to check out the Valentine awesomeness they are sharing, too?  I hope so! 

I hope you are linking up your amazing Valentine-themed posts, as well!  Remember there are NO LIMITS on how many posts you can submit, so the more the merrier!  And each post you link-up is another chance to win our amazing giveaway!  Pretty cool, right?

Anyway, here's what I've shared with you so far:

1. Chocolate Syrup

And now, for today, I'm going to show you an amazing way to use that syrup recipe from yesterday with a recipe for: Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Smoothies!

When my kids and I were talking about what recipes I should make for the link-up, my oldest piped up and said I most definitely should have a recipe with chocolate and strawberries in it and it should be a smoothie.  Thus, Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Smoothies were born!  It was a rather brilliant idea on his part, and oh so yummy, too!

This recipe is soy (if you use all soy-free ingredients), egg, fish, nut and wheat-free and can be milk-free (see variations).  Now that's what I'm talking about!
Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Smoothies
1/4 to 1/2 Cup soy-free vanilla or plain yogurt

2 Cups frozen strawberries

1/2 to 1 Cup Chocolate Syrup

  1. Combine all ingredients in the order listed in a blender (amount and type of yogurt and amount of syrup based on personal preference, though I recommend you start with the lesser amount and add more if desired) and blend until smoothie mixture is to the desired consistency. (Note: You may need to pulse the mixture on an "ice crusher" mode until it breaks down a little before going full boar.)
  2. Pour into glasses and enjoy!

Makes 2 to 3 servings.

  • Milk-Free: Substitute a dairy-free yogurt such as SoDelicious for the yogurt.
  • Chocolate-Covered _____ Smoothies: Substitute frozen mixed berries, blueberries, cherries, bananas, etc. for the strawberries.
  • Top with sweetened whipped cream, more chocolate syrup, heart-shaped sprinkles, mini chocolate chips and/or strawberry slices...Whatever you want to do to fancy it up and make it festive and fun!

Super simple, versatile and so very, very yummy!  Life doesn't get much better than this!



Now it's your turn!
