Benefits of drinking a tasty Chocolate Avocado Smoothie:
- Chocolate Protein Powder, most are sugar-free and antioxidant-rich with cacao powder.
- Avocado contain healthy fat, awesome for the pregnant mama diet, helps improve vision and aids in lowering depression.
- Adding chia seeds to your chocolate avocado smoothie adds Omega-3’s, which aids in preventing strokes and heart attacks, full of fiber and antioxidants.
- Don’t have chocolate protein powder, I highly recommend purchasing, however, you can use other ingredients.
- Cacao powder and an entire avocado can be used in lieu of the chocolate protein to make a great avocado chocolate protein shake.
I do not have protein powder, can I still make this avocado chocolate smoothie?
Yes you sure can make this smoothie. Add one teaspoon cacao powder and the entire avocado and you will replace the protein powder.
