Healthy Chocolate Smoothie

Healthy Chocolate Smoothie

This recipe is one of Georgia Harding’s from wellnourished.com.au. I’ve made a few of her recipes and the latest I was keen to try was her avocado chocolate smoothie.  This took 10 mins to make and I made enough to fill 3x200ml and 2x100ml My Lil Pouches.  I tried one batch with LSA meal and the other with almond meal, I preferred the almond meal version as I find LSA has quite a distinct flavour.  I gave one of the 100ml pouches to Lily who ended up with a really nice chocolate moustache, I should have made her sit down to eat it considering we found chocolate smeared all over the coffee table, oh well lesson learned for next time!!

The following is taken straight from Georgia’s website:

So why is it healthy?

Avocado is a fibre rich source of potassium and healthy monounsaturated fat (amongst many other things).  It’s anti-inflammatory and supports heart, brain, and eye health.  The nuts and seeds contribute more fibre, protein, and good fats.  The cacao is a source of health-giving antioxidants.  The natural yogurt is important for digestive health and a good quality cows milk contributes protein and many important fat-soluble vitamins and minerals.

Ingredients

Half an Avocado (I used a full one)
2 Tablespoons raw cacao powder – honestly I just used coco powder as I was not about to run to the shops for one ingredient
1 Cup of full fat milk – I only put in 3/4
1/4 cup of natural or greek yoghurt
2 tablespoons LSA, almond or hazelnut meal
2-3 tablespoons of rice malt or real maple syrup

I also added half a banana because well….yum!

Wizz the lot up in a blender, you can serve over ice if you wish but you don’t have to, I saved some for the park and even took some to work!
