You've gotta try it!

What would you say if I told you that you could enjoy a chocolate shake and not feel guilty about it...not one little bit?  Would you believe me?  Would you trust me? {Ha reminds me of the saying, "never trust a skinny cook."}

Meet the Chococado! 
This is an amazingly yummy shake.  You would never guess the ingredients by the look or by the taste. 
It's DELICIOUS - and you should try it!!  Trust me!

In a blender combine:
1 avocado
1 large handful of spinach
1 spoonful of cocoa powder
a few drops of stevia to taste (I used a bit of agave)
a dash of vanilla
1-1/2 c. of chocolate almond milk
lots of ice

Blend until smooth and enjoy!


  1. We juice and/or blend drinks every day now. I often use organic canned coconut milk diluted 50% with water as a base. I want to make my own almond milk! Anyways, I bet I could do this shake with the coconut milk and a little more unsweetened dark cocoa powder. The avocado sounds weird but I'll try!! :-) Come sip one in our 80 degree weather with me! xoxo

  2. Karen,
    I bet the coconut milk would work fine, it just might not be as chocolaty. You don't taste the avocado or the spinach - just creamy, chocolate bliss. Would LOVE LOVE to sip with you in your 80 degree weather!!

  3. This was really good Carol! I used soy milk instead so added some extra cocoa powder and sweetener , since it wasn't chocolate milk. Very tasty, filling and healthy! WooHoo! :) BTW - I always read your blog, even though I don't often comment! Love you friend! :)

  4. Just tried it! Yum! I didn't have any agave so I just used raw honey. I also used the coconut milk. MMM enjoying right now. :-)


I always look forward to reading your comments. Thank you for taking the time to leave one. :-)
