Chocolate Avocado Smoothie. Vegan. (Tastes like pudding!)
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!

I am so making this. I have about 8 avocados (don’t ask my husband went to the store for me!!) My girls will love this! 🙂
Hope you love it as much as we do!
I don’t think your crazy, this sounds great! I definitely want to give it a try and your photos have me sold!
Totally yummy and no guilt! Good things 🙂
I cannot WAIT to try this! I am not a huge fan of the flavor of milk substitutes, so I would probably try this with whole milk + a little extra vanilla to make up for the lack of vanilla almond milk. Might even add some pistachios or almonds. My little one would destroy a glass of this, for sure!!
My kids clammer for it! I don’t use milk (cow’s) but almond milk for everything. So good!!! Can’t wait to hear what you guys think of the recipe. oxo
