Looking for a delicious, but nutritious, way to start your day? This recipe should do the trick.
Our rich and delicious smoothie owes its creamy texture to the addition of avocado. Chock full of healthy unsaturated fat and vitamin E, avocadoes are a heart-healthy ingredient that impart lots of nutrition without any aftertaste. Avocadoes are also a good source of fibre, helping support digestive health as a whole. This milk chocolate smoothie is just what our Registered Dietitian, Michelle Latinsky, ordered!
To start, you’ll need:
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1 banana
- ½ an avocado
- 1 tbsp of cocoa powder
- 1 cup of ice
- 1 scoop of protein (we used Jamiesons Essentials™ plus Protein Milk Chocolate)
- Maple syrup, to taste
Add all ingredients to blender except for maple syrup.
Once blended to desired consistency, pour.
Add maple syrup if desired.
