Chocolate Avocado Smoothie Recipe

Hiya Gorgeous!

If we’ve been friends for any length of time, you likely know that I LOVE smoothies. In fact, I have one every. single. morning. It’s the perfect way to apply my add before you subtract approach to nutrition by helping you get more bright, beautiful fruits and veggies into your day. Plants are the medicine, after all. They’re packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants that neutralize free radicals (Source), as well as phytochemicals (the cancer fighters!) (Source). Flooding your body with all that goodness first thing in the morning is bound to put a little extra pep in your step. Plus, they come together in a few minutes flat, making them perfect for a quick healthy breakfast.

With a smoothie fetish that runs so deep, you can imagine how tough it is to find a fav. My Peachy Green Smoothie is at the top of my list each summer, but I’ve gotta say it changes daily. Today’s little beauty is ALWAYS in the running, though. It’s a dreamy Chocolate Avocado Smoothie that’s as nutrient dense as it is delicious!

I promise it doesn’t taste like guac, gorgeous. The avocado adds more texture than flavor, making this glass of goodness velvety smooth (plus rich in healthy fats, potassium and fiber to keep you full!). What you’ll really taste is the CHOCOLATE. The cacao in this cutie is sure to make your heart happy (that’s true literally, too, since cacao is full of flavonoids that promote healthy blood pressure and circulation). 

So if you’re ready for a healthy breakfast recipe you can make in minutes that will also satisfy your sweet tooth, look no further! Just grab your blender and get ready to be delighted.
