Chocolate Avocado Smoothie With Almond Milk
You can make a rich, creamy dessert come alive in the form of a smoothie by creating a Chocolate Avocado Smoothie.
There are endless reasons for choosing the satiating ingredients of Elmhurst Unsweetened Almond Milk, avocado, banana, and cacao.
According to the California Avocado Commission, avocados are a “nutrient dense food that provide substantial amounts of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients with relatively few calories.”
Bananas give the smoothie its main sweetness component and add a significant source of several vitamins and minerals, especially potassium, vitamin B6, and vitamin C.
Finally, not only is 100% cacao powder rich, it “contains more than 300 different chemical compounds and nearly four times the antioxidant power of your average dark chocolate - more than 20 times than that of blueberries.”
Enjoy this smoothie for breakfast or dessert (or both)!
