I love it when something healthy tastes absolutely decadent.
This shake is brimming with vitamins and nutrients, but all you’ll taste is the sweet and rich flavor of a chocolate covered strawberry–> in the form of a milkshake.
Featuring a frozen banana and strawberries for an ice-cream-like texture, plus a bit of avocado for added creaminess, this shake is something you can indulge in daily, without any guilt! I always sneak a handful or two of leafy greens in my smoothies and shakes, but no one will ever know, thanks to the sweet strawberries and rich cocoa powder.
It’s no wonder that I’ve enjoyed this shake nearly every day this week!
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shake
1 cup water or almond milk
1 frozen banana
1 cup frozen organic strawberries
1/4 ripe avocado
2 handfuls fresh spinach
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 heaping tablespoons raw cacao powder
ice, if needed for texture
In a high-speed blender, combine all of the ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy. Add a few ice cubes, if desired, for a thicker, more ice-cream-like texture. Serve immediately!
*Note: If you don’t own a high-speed blender, I’d recommend blending the water, avocado and spinach first, until they are completely broken down with no bits or pieces visible. Then, add in the frozen fruit, vanilla and cocoa, and blend again until completely smooth.
