This is my youngest daughter’s current favorite smoothie. She can’t get enough of it, so I need to keep a constant stash of ripe avocados. The avocado contains healthy fats that are filling and makes this smoothie creamy (like a banana would), but you can’t taste it. We have made this with raw cocoa powder, natural and dutch cocoa (our favorite). This is great as part of breakfast, or an after-school snack!
