Chocolate Avocado Shake

March/April 2013

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (62 votes)

This rich, healthy chocolate shake recipe is dairy-free and gets its creaminess from avocado instead of ice cream. If you aren’t avoiding dairy, you can use regular low-fat milk and any type of semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips in place of the nondairy chocolate chips.

Tastes like Chocolate Pudding!

My kids and I enjoyed this recipe very much. I added some egg white protein powder and a handful of spinach and it left me feeling full and energized all morning. My son said it was a "winning" smoothie recipe.

good but not creamy or sweet enough as the recipe stands

I'm disappointed. I had to add in another half of an avocado to get it to what I would consider creamy and it required a couple more tblsps of sugar to get it sweet enough. Maybe my blender did't cut up the sugar well enough or maybe I should try to melt the sugar with a teensy bit of water so it will dissolve b/c once the ice is in there I taste bits of frozen chocolate and sugar.

Loved it!

Loved it! I could drink it everyday.

Loved it!

This was really good, easy to make, tastes great. I could drink this almost every day. It's easier to blend the melted chocolate in without the avocado, so blend without the avocado and ice; then blend in the avocado, and finally the ice. Yummy!

Easy to make, tastes great
Love from an avowed avocado hater...

I just don't like guacamole. And thought, I would never like anything avocado, until I decided to make this. I was so impressed. I did not make it dairy free, since I did not have non dairy chocolate chips or almond milk. I will be sure toad to smoothies I make . This gets a full five stars from me!

Easy to make.
