dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, paleo, vegan, vegetarian, keto-optional
Ingredients
  • 1 avocado, halved and pitted
  • 1 cup full-fat organic coconut milk*
  • ½ - 1 cup coconut water*
  • ¼ cup raw cacao (or regular cocoa powder)
  • 4 dates, pitted or 1 tablespoon honey or other sweetener of your choice, to taste, a few drops of stevia or monkfruit are great
  • 2 tablespoons melted super dark chocolate or chocolate sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract or 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • pinch sea salt
Optional:
  • collagen peptides or protein powder, optional
  • whipped coconut cream or whipped cream, for serving
  • cacao nibs, chocolate chips or shavings, for serving
  • almond butter for swirling, if that's your thing
  • 1 cup ice cubes, or more as necessary
Instructions
  1. Scoop the flesh of the avocado from the skin and add all of the ingredients, except the ice, to the pitcher of your high speed blender, starting with 1 cup total liquid. Begin blending and add more coconut water (or other non-dairy milk), as needed, to create the perfect consistency. Add the ice at the end and blend until thick, creamy and frosty.
  2. Divide between 2 medium glasses or serve 1, large overflowing glass. Serve topped with whipped coconut cream and cacao nibs. Enjoy!
  3. Note: you can skip the coconut milk and water and opt for almond milk or any other non-dairy milk of your choice to reduce the fat grams, you can also opt for water in place of the coconut water to lower sugar / carbs. Most of the creaminess comes from the avocado.
