Today I made this Healthy Chocolate Avocado Smoothie with Almond Milk. Yum, yum, yum! When I was a kid I used to love homemade chocolate milk shakes. I remember me and my brother would make milk shakes after school with vanilla ice cream, milk, and LOTS of chocolate syrup (as in half of the glass contained chocolate syrup). It was super good, but oh my, if I tried drinking that concoction now I would probably be doubled over from a stomach ache for days.

So with this Chocolate Avocado Smoothie, I’ve combined my love for chocolate and my love for creating a healthy smoothie to go with that craving.
This is the first time I’ve used an Avocado in a smoothie. I’ve heard of people doing this and have always wanted to try it.
I LOVE Avocados, as in I eat like one a day!
Avocados have almost 20 nutrients and minerals in them, which makes them some sort of a super food. It’s a good healthy fat to have in your diet.
And the best part…I had my son try this smoothie and did not tell him what was in it (because he doesn’t like Avocados), and guess what…he gulped this down soooo fast! He was like ‘Wow mom, this was a great chocolatey smoothie, you should put this on your blog’!
Woohoo, 2 points for me on getting my son to have a healthy smoothie he loves! 🙂
