Nutrition

Avocados are one of the nutrient dense fruit (yes, it is not a vegetable) including 20 different vitamins and minerals, high in potassium and is loaded with heart healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (check out more details here).

Bananas are a healthy source of fiber, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, improves heart and digestive health. They are also rich in various antioxidants and phytonutrients.

Cocoa powder – Cocoa is one of the richest sources of polyphenols and abundant in flavanols, which have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. It also reduces inflammation, increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure. Cocoa may have some positive effects on mood by reducing stress levels.

This is perfect for picky eaters, since it does not taste like banana or avocado. It tastes sweet, rich, creamy, chocolatey made without yogurt using cocoa powder.

Expert tips

Use well ripened banana with brown spots.

Use frozen fruit – This helps keeps the smoothie cold and thick.

Sweeten to your liking – Adjust maple syrup based on desired sweetness

Milk – We uses regular milk to make this dark chocolate shake using cocoa powder. Almond milk tends to have a neutral taste but coconut milk will add a subtle sweetness and coconut flavor.

How do you make this dairy free? Simply replace regular milk with almond milk.

Make it vegan – Use plant based milk like almond milk

Can I use dates instead of maple syrup? The avocado and banana makes this drink very thick, so using dates makes them lot more thicker that is more like a smoothie bowl. So, to make a drink with pourable consistency, maple syrup does the trick.

Best blenders:

A high speed blender like Vitamix or NutriBullet is great for milkshake (we made this in a Vitamix).

Can the smoothie be made ahead?

Leftover shake can refrigerated in a sealed glass jar for a day.

How to freeze?

Pour blended smoothie into an ice cube tray, so that each cube is filled (silicone ice cube trays make an easy removal), freeze overnight until firm. To thaw, place a few smoothie cubes in a mason jar and let thaw in refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours. Shake and drink.

Frequently asked questions

Is it better to make smoothie with milk or water?

Milk adds creaminess, richness, protein and calcium when compared to water.

How do you thicken a smoothie?

Banana and avocado naturally adds creaminess and thickness.

Can you taste avocado?

No. The taste of avocado is masked by the taste of banana and cocoa, so it is perfect for picky eaters.
