Chocolate Avocado Smoothie

This ¬†smoothie is more like a treat!!! ūüôā So creamy and so delicious. Loaded with protein from the All Natural peanut butter and healthy fats from the almonds and avocados – Guaranteed to fuel you up Pre Workout or even great as a filling snack or yummy dessert option.¬†

 

Ingredient Highlight: Organic Carob Powder :  another Farmers Market Find. 

Carob powder has a similar appearance to cacao powder, but it has  a milder sweeter taste. Carob powder provides more fiber than cacao powder. *Rich in antioxidants.  Carob provides a type of carbohydrate that may prevent hemorrhoids, fight constipation, lower cholesterol and regulate blood sugar levels. *helpful for treating diarrhea in children.

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 1/2 cup of shaved almonds
  • 1 Organic banana¬†
  • 1/4 cup of organic Carob Powder
  • 2 tablespoons of Organic peanut butter
  • 1 cup of Almond Milk
  • 1/2 cup of ice water (my preference)
  • topped with Peruvian Organic Cocoa Nibs (Farmers Market Find)

Instructions:

1. Slice avocado and remove seed. Add all ingredients to the blender or Nutri- Bullet. Blend well and enjoy! 

 

NOTE: The thickness of the smoothie can be made to our liking. I used half and avocado to avoid the pudding like consistency. *If you like a thicker consistency, use the whole avocado. You can also freeze it and enjoy and a frozen treat as well.
