This delicious Chocolate, Avocado, & Banana Smoothie recipe is dairy free, gluten free, and with a simple tweak works for Paleo too! Smoothies are a nutritious way to start the day and with the chocolate in this one, the kids will think they are having dessert for breakfast!
Smoothies are a super easy, very nutritious way to start the day! There are so many different options that it’s pretty much impossible to get bored with them. This dairy-free smoothie is made with avocado (which gives them an extra creaminess), banana, coconut milk, and cocoa powder!
Smoothies are a great way to sneak in some healthy options so easy when you have a picky eater! Children that wouldn’t consider touching an avocado or spinach are quick to drink it if you add chocolate or berries. The possibilities are truly endless! Best of all, you only need a blender to make smoothies, so you don’t need any fancy specialty kitchen items to clutter up your counter top! Although this smoothie blender would be nice to have if you make them often!
Smoothies also work well as an after-school snack or a quick pick-me-up after a workout. Stick with natural sweetness like raw honey, bananas, or maple syrup for a healthier smoothie than those made with sugar or sweetened yogurt.
