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

IMG_4821 2

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!

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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!

  1. I think I’m going to have to give this a try! Do you have the nutritional info?

    1. 381 calories, 23 g fat (6 g sat., 10g mono saturated), 0 cholesterol, 45 g carbs, 27g sugars, 5g protein, 11 g fiber, 791 mg potassium.

  2. 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! 🙂

  3. 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!!

    1. 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
