Chocolate avocado smoothie


What is a chocolate avocado smoothie?

A chocolate avocado smoothie is a creamy chocolate smoothie thickens with ripe avocado and flavored with unsweetened cocoa powder. It’s also known as an avocado milkshake. In fact, it has the similar creamy texture of a keto chocolate milkshake without the sugar loaded ice-cream.

How to make a keto chocolate smoothie?

A keto chocolate smoothie has no banana. While bananas are often used to thicken smoothies, they also contain a lot of natural sugar not suitable for diabetics. Therefore, the trick to make the most delicious thick sugar-free chocolate smoothie is avocado. Avocado is naturally creamy, bland in flavor when combined with cocoa powder and adds the perfect thickness to keto smoothies. Plus, it helps you reach your fat intake and gives you fiber and protein to feel full for longer.

Let’s see all you need to make this decadent chocolate drink

  • Ripe avocado – of course, this is the key to the perfect creamy keto smoothie. Make sure your avocado is soft with no black spots. Avocados are very good keto-friendly vegetables.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • Unsweetened almond milk – I love to use Almond Breeze unsweetened almond milk as it doesn’t contain added sugar and it’s very bland in smoothies
  • Hemp powder –  amazing plant-based protein high in fat, perfect to boost fat burning on keto diet. It also adds thickness to this keto chocolate smoothie. If you don’t have some, you can replace this powder by chia powder, keto protein powder or flaxmeal
  • Ice cubes – this adds extra thickness to the drink
  • Sugar-free crystal sweetener – Monk fruit crystal, xylitol, erythritol or stevia drops! All work well

When to eat your keto smoothie?

This keto smoothie is a great breakfast smoothie as it contains lots of fats, fiber and protein that are all very fulfilling. You can also enjoy this smoothie as keto protein shake after the gym to reload on nutrient and protein. Otherwise, it’s a nice summer drink to refresh in the afternoon and indulge on chocolate.

  1. 5 stars
    Just tried this but I was running super low on protein so I added in hemp seeds, chia seeds and flaxseed which I ground down first. It was super thick and really yummy!!! Will make again for sure 🙂 you wouldn’t believe half an 🥑 was in it. Thank you!
