Ingredients

  • 1 ½ c ripe cubed avocado, frozen* see note
  • 1 ½ c raspberries, frozen
  • c vanilla almond milk or milk of choice
  • ¼ c cocoa powder
  • 2 large handfuls fresh spinach
  • 1 -2 T maple syrup or sweetener of choice
  • 1 small banana, frozen* see note optional

Instructions

  • Add 1 ¼ cup milk to the bottom of the blender. Top with other ingredients. You can wait to add sweetener if desired.
  • Blend on high until smooth. Add an extra ¼ - ½ cup milk to desired thickness. Add more sweetener as desired--sometimes raspberries need some extra as they can be a bit tart.
  • Enjoy immediately.

Notes

  • *If skipping the banana, I suggest increasing the avocado by about ½ to ¾ cup. However, since the recipe starts with only 1 ¼ cup milk, you may be just fine. Lots of wiggle room though if necessary!
  • You may not need the sweetener. If your berries are on the sweet side and you are using the banana, it will likely be sweet enough. I suggest blending the smoothie and testing a spoonful before adding it.
