You've got to try this if you love chocolate!

Sunday, March 17, 2013

I tried a few new recipes this weekend and this is my favorite. I found it in my collection. It's easy to make and soooooooooo good!

Chocolate Avocado Shake

Makes 2 servings (but could actually be 3-4 since a serving is plenty)

I ripe avocado, halved and pitted
1 1/2 C vanilla almond milk or milk of your choice
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (I used 2 Tbsp of dark chocolate cocoa)
3 Tbsp brown sugar or maple syrup, or to taste
2 Tbsp semisweet chocolate chips, melted or nondairy choc chips
1 Tbsp vanilla extract, or to taste
12 ice cubes

Scoop avocado into a blender; add milk, cocoa, brown sugar, or maple syrup, melted chocolate and vanilla. Pulse and puree until smooth. Add ice and puree until thick and frosty.

381 calories per serving (1 3/4 C)

I put half of this in the refridgerator and drank it later on after blending again.

Let me know if you try it and what you thought of it.

    Unfortunately , I can not have chocolate. I have made other shakes using avocado. I have a Nutra-Bullet that makes a lot of health drinks. For awhile my husband and I were making these .
