Chocolate Breakfast Smoothie (that will really get you up and on the go)

A quick, easy to make and super nutritious Chocolate breakfast (or anytime) drink.
Prep Time5 mins
Total Time5 mins
Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 30 g cacao unsweetened Dutch process or raw (2 tbsp)
  • ½ avocado/s -flesh scooped out
  • 250 ml milk (1 cup) of your choice
  • 60 g full-fat natural yoghurt (¼ cup)
  • 2 tbsp LSA (or almond or hazelnut meal)
  • 60 g rice malt syrup or maple syrup -more or less to taste (3 tbsp)

Instructions

  • Simply place all of the ingredients in a powerful blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Serve over ice (or blend trhough with ice if you prefer). Can't be more simple than that!

Store

  • Leftovers can be frozen into little cups or ice-block moulds for a snack another day.

Notes

Low-fructose

Sweeten with rice malt syrup.

Nut -free

Replace the ground nuts with ground flax (linseed).

Dairy-free and vegan

Replace the milk with a sugar-free nut milk, rice milk, coconut milk or coconut water. Replace the yoghurt with coconut yoghurt.

Add Protein

I often add a scoop of 180 Nutrition Superfood Protein powder (coconut flavour). They have both a whey protein and vegan (dairy-free) options.

Increase the fibre

Add 2 tablespoons of oatmeal, rolled quinoa or soaked chia seeds (for gluten free).

Different flavour

Replace the cacao with the flavour you want. Banana, strawberry...the limit is your imagination.
