Protein, fiber, omegas, antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, and yumminess! This smoothie beverage totally has it all. It’s super easy, quick, and will cure just about any chocolate craving. There’s no dairy, no sodium, no cholesterol, and no refined sugar (all depending on the milk you use of course). If you don’t care for avocado, sub half a banana. And if you’re aiming for a more raw food life style, simply make your own nut milk! Soak nuts (almonds or cashews work great) overnight, discard water, and blend until smooth with refreshed water (three cups water to one cup nuts).
This is great for:
anyone looking for a healthy snack
picky kiddos needing more fiber, vitamins, or just healthy stuff in general
pregnant ladies! protein protein protein and fiber fiber fiber. SO important when pregnant.
nursing mamas… use coconut milk! Coconut is supposedly GREAT for your breast milk supply. I’m not a doctor, but I’ve heard the rumors… and even if it’s not true… how amazingly rich and delicious would this be with coconut milk!? plus good fats and calories are a thumbs up.
1- 1 1/4 cup milk of your choice (we tend to stick to almond milk in this house)*
quarter avocado (or banana)
two squares raw cocao goji energy bars**
four dates, pitted.
*milk amounts will vary by how thick you want your drink. It’s an incredibly filling snack— and has enough calories and nutrients to be a whole meal. Adding a bit more milk will make it a little lighter and can maybe make a bit more in case you feel like sharing need to share.
**we found these little health superfood gems in the bulk bin at whole foods, but you can find them by different companies and packaged at many health food stores. Or you can order a bag through amazon.
Make sure you pit your dates and peel your avocado. Stick everything in blender and process until smooth. Voila.
It’s really freaking good (and good for you).
