Avocado in smoothies

Avocado makes a GREAT smoothie addition because it is rich, smooth, and easy to blend, making avocado smoothies extra silky. Avocado also adds a healthy fat that keeps us full longer.

If you don't love the idea of avocado in sweet recipes, don't worry!! When you add a little natural sweetener (such as honey in this recipe) and some chocolate (cocoa powder), the avocado flavor is completely undetected in smoothies!! Give it a try!

Super healthy smoothie

I don't often make smoothies for breakfast, so when I do have a smoothie, you better believe it's going to be GOOD and extra NUTRITIOUS and FILLING.

This chocolate avocado is loaded with healthy, filling ingredients:

 - Avocado adds loads of healthy fats to keep you full and gives this smoothie a rich, pudding-like texture. 

 - Cocoa powder is an antioxidant powerhouse and doesn't contain any sugars. Oh, and it gives this smoothie a GREAT chocolate flavor. I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder in this smoothie and it gives the smoothie a super rich and dark chocolate color. You can use any cocoa powder you like! Here are a few options.

 - A pinch of cinnamon adds more antioxidants to this chocolate smoothie and enhances the chocolate flavor.

 - Honey adds a bit of natural sweetness to the smoothie. Trust me, it's needed unless your almond milk is sweetened. If you want a vegan smoothie, just use agave syrup instead of honey.

 - Shredded coconut flakes add more fiber and filling fats to this smoothie and make it richer and thicker. Use unsweetened ones, if you don't want extra sugar!

 - Almond milk is a nice light vegan milk to help turn all the ingredients into a smooth, drinkable smoothie.

Just blend it all together and enjoy! 

I love my Blendtec blender and use it daily. It's crazy powerful and makes super smooth smoothies.

Here's a Chocolate Avocado Smoothie for you so you can start the day off right with a refreshing smoothie full of healthy nutrient-rich ingredients. This smoothie tastes just like a chocolate pudding!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 Hass avocado
  • 2 cups almond milk or coconut milk (unsweetened, see notes)
  • 1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder, or to taste (start with less at first, add more if needed)
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (optional, see notes)
  • 1-2 Tbsp honey, or to taste (see notes)
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon

Instructions

    Combine all the smoothie ingredients in a blender and blend for 1-2 minutes, or until smooth. Taste and see if you want to add more honey or cocoa powder. Serve immediately, garnishing with shredded coconut.

    (If you're feeling extra, toast the shredded coconut in a dry skillet for 3-5 minutes over medium heat, or until it turns golden brown)

Notes

  • If you use sweetened almond milk (or another sweetened milk), then try skipping the honey, or reducing the honey.
  • The coconut flakes add a little bulk and filling fats and fiber to this smoothie, but you can skip them if you want. If using sweetened coconut flakes, you might need to reduce the honey.
  • If you have leftover chocolate avocado smoothie, you might need to re-blend it to make it extra smooth again.
