chocolate avocado green smoothie
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 16 oz
  • ½ a ripe avocado
  • 5 or 6 baby carrots
  • 1 cup of spinach, washed
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of cayenne
  • 1 cup of chocolate almond milk (or chocolate/plain milk of your dairy or non-dairy choice)
  • 2-4 ice cubes, as needed, to thin the smoothie
  • Optional 1 teaspoon honey, or to taste
  1. Add everything except the ice cubes to your blender cup or pitcher and blend until smooth. This takes me less than 30 seconds.
  2. Open up your blending container and take a look at the smoothie. It will probably be pretty thick! Add 2 or 3 ice cubes, close the blender back up, and pulse to break up the ice.
  3. Add more ice or liquid, as necessary, until you're happy with your personal smoothie creation.
  4. Enjoy!
