I know you’re thinking I must be crazy, right?! I was hesitant when I ran across this recipe in one of my mags that I had. I thought why not try it, my youngest daughter is so underweight that the calories (all good) would be a great start to the day. Protein, good fats… it’s all good. Both of my girls loved it! I snuck a taste and it tasted like pudding – even had that consistency to be honest. I put them on table, started making my breakfast and the next thing I heard was slurping sounds coming from their straws. Enough said!
Makes 2 – 2 cup servings
1 ripe avocado, halved and pitted
2 cups of vanilla unsweetened cashew or almond milk (I prefer Silk)
2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
2 tablespoons of maple syrup
1 tablespoons of vegan chocolate chips
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
14 ice cubes
Into your blender or Vitamix, add all of the ingredients. Blend until creamy. This will have a thick, pudding like appearance. Pour slowly into your glasses. Top with a few chocolate chips. Enjoy!
Eeek! Chocolate for breakfast and it is oh so good!
