If you’re following me on Insta, you probably saw by now that #FashionablyBae and I are in our second week of #Whole30. Not gonna lie, it’s been tough. I went t NYC this weekend for the ultimate girls weekend and seriously struggled around all of the pasta, carbs, cheese, sweets, etc. I wanted it all! But I stuck to it (minus the cocktails, obi) and am feeling pretty proud of myself. The good news: the second week is way easier than the first. The second best part, I’m learning to whip up some pretty healthy & filing dishes to keep me on track.
Which brings me to today’s post. Now, while this cocoa avocado smoothie isn’t completely #Whole30 compliant – actually, no smoothies are – it’s one I love making for breakfast or a dessert-alternative once we start transitioning out of Whole 30. Keep scrolling to peep the recipe for one of my favorite smoothies ever (seriously, even B loves it) and comment below with your favorite blended treats!
Cocoa Avocado Smoothie Recipe
1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk (I love Califia Farms…they also make coffee beverages!)
2 Tablespoons Almond Butter
1/4 Cup Oats
1 Scoop Cocoa Protein Powder (or Cocoa Powder if protein isn’t your thing)
Step 1: Slice a banana into smaller pieces so they easily blend. Set aside.
Step 2: Cut your avocado in half lengthwise and scoop out one half of the Avocado.
Step 3: Pour almond milk into your blender. Scoop in oats, almond butter and protein powder.
Step 4: Add in your sliced banana and avocado.
Step 5: Toss in about 5-7 ice cubes
Step 6: Blend until smooth
Optional: I added some of the oats and banana to the top of the smoothie for a little garnish. You could also top it off with slivered almonds or cocoa powder and cinnamon!
