For best results:

  • Chill the water, avocado, and coconut milk for an extra creamy smoothie
  • If you wish to substitute for coconut milk you can use your favorite dairy-free option, or use regular milk (or yogurt) if you do not need a vegan smoothie
  • No avocado? No problem! You can use 1/2 banana instead
  • Be sure to store any unused portion in a tightly sealed container

Optional ad-ins:

  • Fruit- cherries, strawberries, raspberries are all great choices as long as you don’t mind the extra carbs or sugar
  • Collagen- this adds protein, amino acids, and is a great way to support joints, skin, hair, and even the gut
  • Peanut butter or favorite nut butter
  • Mint- adding mint makes this smoothie taste like a dream

Or you could try a dash of cinnamon, add some coffee, or anything else you could think of. Feel free to get creative!


FAQs About This Chocolate Avocado Smoothie

Have a few questions before you get started? No problem, I’ll try to answer them here 🙂

1. Can you taste the avocado in the smoothie?

Nope, avocados help with the creamy texture and add good fats, antioxidants, fiber, and potassium, but they do not overpower the other ingredients. In fact, most people don’t even know avocado is in it.

2. How long is an avocado smoothie good to drink after making?

I have read that a chocolate avocado smoothie is good for 1-2 days if kept in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Personally, I try to drink it within 24 hours.

3. How many servings does this recipe make?

We normally get about two servings out of this recipe.
