recipes to make you feel good inside and out
#CHOCOLATE LOVER? THIS #CHOCOVADO SHAKE IS FOR YOU!
On Monday I had joined a couple of girl friends at a pool and it was so hot outside that we went to the snack counter and split a vanilla milkshake 3 ways! This shake was the old fashioned milkshake that has a million calories in it. Normally I would not opt for such a high calorie snack. This got me thinking…is there a way to enjoy a milkshake without all the calories and enjoy it just as much?
Yesterday I decided to search the internet for such a recipe…and it seems there are many people out there drinking chocolate smoothies without drinking a million calories per serving! It is a Chocolate Avocado Banana Smoothie. I will call it “Choco-vado-shake”. And its delicious, rich, satisfying and cold…all those things I desire during the summer.
Here is how to make it: serves 1, but double for 2
Blend on highest setting for 1 minute until smooth. It is very thick, so much so, I was eating it with a spoon and it tasted like chocolate mouse! Delicious!
You may add greens if you want it to be a green chocolate smoothie…spinach would probably be the best choice because it is the most mild flavored green.
Enjoy this smoothie!
