Since cutting back on dairy and sugar, this “milkshake” has satisfied my sweet tooth and ice cream cravings many times. If you think having avocado in a chocolate shake sounds sketchy, you are not alone. But give it a try! I was happily surprised that you can’t even taste the avocado. It just gives the shake a rich and creamy texture.


One of my favorite things to do after a long week is to curl up next to my husband, watch a show and have a treat. This shake is the perfect guilt-free movie-watching treat! It is also delicious for breakfast. Both my husband and my almost 2-year old love it. If you find you are a fan of the chocolate-avocado combination, this chocolate pudding is also delicious!


Chocolate Banana Avocado Milkshake


A delicious chocolate, frosty treat. You would never guess avocado is what makes it so creamy.


  • 2 cups cold almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 an avocado
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Add more honey to taste if desired. Enjoy!
