Chocolate Avocado Pudding Smoothie

Chocolate Avocado Pudding Smoothie

A special glass for a special smoothie :)

This is the perfect dessert recipe if you enjoy rich, creamy, chocolatey goodness.

It’s also a tasty, healthy, and filling breakfast or meal replacement.

After years of making smoothies I rarely get as excited over new recipes as I did this one. It really was out of this world delicious. Mind you, that’s coming from someone with an extreme weakness for chocolate ;)

The star ingredient in this recipe is avocado, which provides the thick, creamy texture and is loaded with nutrition. The nutrients in avocados are good for your heart, skin, and eyes. They also help protect against cancer, reduce inflammation, reduce cholesterol, and perhaps best of all, improve the absorption of all the other nutrients in your smoothies.

There’s no shortage of optional add-ons for taking this smoothie to next level of deliciousness. Topping it with fresh raspberries and bee pollen is my plan for the next blend. Enjoy!

    Why doesn’t it taste good like the first time I did it?

    I used only 1 tbsp honey, 1tbsp cocoa powder, dash of salt, 1 big avocado, 1 cup of water..

    first time it tasted very good like a desert..

    now i changed avocado and it tastes not good.. and i used different avocado types..
    tastes not good, also too much taste of the avocado i think now.. first time wasn’t a problem (didn’t taste the avocado but more cream chocolatde).. i used smaller avocado first time i think and not the same type like in the picture below.

    now i used bigger.. like in the picture:

      My best guess is that the avocado wasn’t fully ripe. From your pictures the skin looks pretty green, when ripe, it’s usually a darker green/brown.
