Looking for a healthy on-the-go breakfast this month?  This avocado smoothie is a great way to fuel your day without heating up the kitchen!  Made with chocolate almond milk, creamy avocados, frozen banana, and ground flax seeds, it is quick and easy to get you out the door fast.

Why do you put avocado in a smoothie?    Because it is loaded with healthy fats and gives your chocolate smoothie a rich and creamy texture.  And using almond milk means it’s vegan as well!  Overall, a healthy way to start the day.  And who doesn’t love chocolate, right?

Tips For Making A Chocolate Smoothie

Making this chocolate smoothie is seriously simple because you start with Almond Breeze® Chocolate Almondmilk. Made with real Blue Diamond almonds, it contains 50% more calcium than regular dairy milk.

Seriously, it’s delicious. Drink it straight or blend it into a smoothie.  You’ll love the taste, guaranteed (or your money back).  It’s available in a variety of sizes and flavors which are all free from dairy, soy, and lactose.

Like most smoothies, this one is pretty easy to make.  

  1. Get out your blender and pour in your  Almond Breeze® Chocolate Almondmilk. 
  2. Break the frozen banana in half or thirds and toss that in as well.
  3. Spoon in the ground flax seeds
  4. Remove the skin from the avocado and scoop it out.  Add the avocado into the blender as well.
  5. Put the lid on the blender and puree until smooth!

Pour your smoothie into a glass and top with more ground flax seeds, a few mini chocolate chips, and some fresh mint if you want a bit if visual appeal.  Of course, you can just skip the decorating and enjoy it plain as well!

Ingredient Additions and Substitutions

Here are a few recipe additions, substitutions, and variations if you want to switch things up a little bit. 

  • Fresh spinach:  Greens make a great addition to this chocolate smoothie.  Spinach will add nutrients without changing the flavor at all.
  • Protein powder:  If you want a real boost of protein, add a scoop of your favorite protein powder.
  • Seeds:  Add chia seeds or flax seeds for more fiber and protein if desired.  
  • Nut butters: If you want more protein, add whatever nut or seed butters you have on hand.  Cashew, peanut, or sunflower butter are all great choices. 
  • Sweeteners: I find that the Almond Breeze® Chocolate Almondmilk is sweet enough in this smoothie, however, if you want it sweeter, add a few medjool dates or a little bit of honey or agave nectar.
