Choco-Cado Milkshake


This chocolate milkshake is my new favorite snack. It’s sugar-free and loaded with healthy fats!

If you’re not a fan of avocados, don’t worry– I don’t care much for their flavor, either. It’s totally hidden in this creamy shake, thanks to the cocoa, cinnamon and sweetness from the liquid stevia.

If you’re new to using stevia, try the NuNaturals brand. It’s my favorite, with no bitter after-taste!

Choco-cado Milkshake
serves 2

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups water or almond milk
1 ripe avocado
2 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
liquid stevia, to taste
2 handfuls of ice

*optional: 2 handfuls fresh spinach, for a green milkshake

Directions

Throw all the ingredients into a blender, and blend until completely smooth and creamy. (you shouldn’t see any flecks of avocado, or it kinda ruins the effect…) You could easily stop here and serve this mixture over ice.

But if you have a high-powered blender, like the Vita-Mix, throw two handfuls of ice into the blender and blend until ice-cold and creamy! It’s just like a milkshake!!

The cinnamon is like the “secret ingredient” to this drink– it really takes the flavor over-the-top, while hiding any avocado flavor.

Thank you for this recipe, it was SO delicious. I used cardamom instead of cinnamon, because I’d run out, and raw creamed honey for sweetener… And no ice. The almond milk was cold enough for me. It was incredible!

Wow! I have been eating much lower-carb lately and have been search for a smoothie, or even better, a green one (I love adding spinach to my smoothies!), that does not use bananas or berries as a sweetener. This is the only tasty looking one I’ve found thus far and I will give it a try. I think I’ll try freezing the almond milk beforehand and seeing what that does for the texture. Thanks so much!

This tasted horrible! I threw it down the sink.

I used a combo of hemp milk and water and over a dropper of vanilla stevia and I made sure to only use a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon and I could still taste it and barely any chocolate. It was a very watery almost flavorless (except for the cinnamon) drink.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE… been using this milkshake recipe now for months and still my children beg for it! You are amazing and love to try anything you create! I know it will be great! Holidays were awesome and I was able to use your recipes and treats to make my life healthier – not to mention my family as well! Keep up the GREAT work!

Megan! This is really good. I substituted the stevia with maple syrup (2 TBSP) and it was yum! I don’t like stevia bc it leaves an after taste…

I can’t wait to try this tomorrow! I am so happy I found your Candida recipes, because I am on a Candida cleanse… I’m dying for some chocolate ! Also, I had trouble coming up with breakfast ideas, so this will be fantastic! How did you know when you were done the cleanse?

I don’t like to use stevia, are your smoothies sweet enough so that it won’t be required?
