Did you know that avocado is a nutrient booster? Eating avocados actually helps your body absorb more of the nutrients of the foods that you eat at the same time. So why not start your day right by enjoying this delicious nutrient boosting Avocado and Chocolate Smoothie with your breakfast.

Avocado and Chocolate Smoothie

Avocados are also a great source of dietary fibre and per gram, they contain more potassium than bananas (California Avocado Commission, Live Science).

If you're thinking that avocado and chocolate could not possibly taste good together, you really should give it a try. Avocado on its own doesn't have a strong taste so it blends well with other flavours. Plus, all that creaminess in a ripe avocado makes it perfect for use in smoothies.

How to Make it

Make sure to use a ripe avocado for a creamy smoothie. Using an unripened avocado will not blend well. You can use any milk you like, but different brands of almond milk contain more sugar than others, so remember to adjust for sweetness.

Ingredients Overview:

  • Vanilla flavoured almond milk or your favourite milk
  • Ripe avocado
  • Ripe banana
  • Cocoa powder unsweetened
  • Honey or other sweetener
  • Ice cubes (optional)

Steps Overview:

If you're not sure about the level of sweetness, you can always blend your smoothie and taste it before adding any honey or other sweetener.

To make this smoothie, add all of the ingredients in the jar of your blender and blend on high until smooth. Pour your smoothie into a glass and enjoy!

Thursday 5th of March 2015

[…] I used a bit more milk, the regular one and less ice as Fida, because I did not want it to be too cold, and the thing I changed is also that I added one whole banana, because it was quite small. So I was able to get 2 glasses from it and I shared it with my boyfriend who liked it a lot! He wanted to drink mine too after he finished his, so I let him have a sip..:) You can read the original recipe here. […]

We just love avocado. I bet it doesn't leave much of a taste and is used mainly for consistency? My hubby doesn't like bananas in his smoothie so this might be a great fix.

Hi Julie, that's right it really doesn't taste like avocado, it just makes really nice and creamy.
