This is a high fibre, protein rich, sustaining start to the day. It takes minutes to make so there is no reason at all to buy the heavily processed, nutritionally void varieties of breakfast drinks I have written about here.
If the convenience of a boxed drink is necessary, why not serve it in a sipper cup with a straw. Same same but actually good for you!
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.

2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
½ avocado, flesh scooped out
1 cup full-fat organic cows milk
¼ cup full fat natural or Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons LSA, almond or hazelnut meal
2 – 3 tablespoons brown rice syrup or real maple syrup (or more or less to taste)
Sweeten with brown rice syrup.
Replace the ground nuts with ground flax (linseed).
Replace the cacao with the flavour you want. Banana, strawberry…the limit is your imagination.
