Ingredients

Ingredients

  • Milk – can also use your choice of milk or milk alternative. Coconut Milk, Almond Milk, soy milk, oat milk etc.
  • Cocoa Powder – unsweetened Cocoa Powder.
  • Spinach – spinach leaves that have been rinsed and dried.
  • Avocado – half a de-pitted ripe avocado.
  • Sweetener – use your preferred sweetener.

Ingredient Substitution

For a vegan-friendly twist, you can easily substitute the milk in this smoothie with a plant-based milk alternative. My recommendation is almond milk.

🥑 Avocado Note

For the creamiest and smoothest texture, it’s best to use a Ripe Avocado in your smoothie.

🍓 Fruit Pro Tip

If you’re thinking of incorporating extra fruits, opt for Frozen Fruits. This eliminates the need for additional ice, preventing any dilution of your smoothie’s flavors and maintaining a creamy consistency.

Step 3 Blend everything on high speed until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.

🥤 Texture Pro Tip

Adjust the amount of Milk to control the thickness of your smoothie. Add more for a thinner consistency or less for a thicker one.

Paring Recommendations

Pair your healthy smoothie with delightful accompaniments like my Coconut White Chocolate Clusters or Candied Glazed Macadamia Nuts. These sweet treats perfectly complement the smoothie’s rich cocoa flavor, providing a blend of textures and tastes, making it a satisfying and healthy snack.
