Smooth Like Velvet (Chocolate & Banana Smoothie)

The use of avocado in this smoothie makes it smooooooth like velvet. Hence the name, smooth like velvet! 

This smoothie combines chocolate and banana, along with a a piece of heaven (a.k.a avocado!).

Having the avocado in the smoothie as a main ingredient adds vitamins E, B5, B6, folic acid, potassium, and vitamin K. In addition to that burst of vitamins and minerals, it is also abundant in HEALTHY fats! Until I have time to make a separate post on the amazing health benefits of avocados, read more here at a website dedicated to the worlds healthiest foods.



Ingredients:

1 banana, frozen
1/2 avocado
6 brazil nuts
1 scoop chocolate protein (optional)
1/4 tsp maca powder
1/2 C packed greens
1 tbsp chia seeds
Unsweetened chocolate almond milk**

** Make sure it's unsweetened guys.. If it doesn't clearly say unsweetened on the label, it's probably not and it's going to have around 10+ grams of sugar per serving which is just CRAZY. Y'all don't need that much extra sugar, you're too sweet already ;)

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth!


GO CANADA!!
