In the on going quest to get good nutrients into my children, unsuspectingly if possible, I have fallen in love with avocados and cacao. I have also been on the look out for ways to add their moringa powder into their shakes without it being too noticeable. The kids love their chocolate milk (see our probiotic chocolate milk recipe); yet I wanted to add just a bit more fats to it to make it more substantial, especially for the little ones who might not eat as well-rounded a diet as I would like. After making an avocado chocolate mousse cake that was a smashing success with all ages, I thought I might as well throw it in as a shake. Avocados are awesome fats that feed your brain, especially the brain of a developing young mind. They are loaded with Vitamin B’s as well. All around, I think God created the perfect little meal in an avocado.
Chocolate Avocado Shake
serves about 6-7 child sized straw cups
- 5 cups fresh, raw milk
- 1 avocado
- 1/2 cup cacao powder
- 1/3 cup sucanat
- 3-4 tsp moringa powder
- 1/4 cup raw honey (or more to taste)
- stevia to taste
- Add all ingredients to blender.
- Blend on low for about 30 seconds.
- Pour and enjoy!
If you like your shakes cold, feel free to add in some frozen milk cubes, frozen ice cubes, frozen strawberries, or frozen whey cubes. You’ll be amazed at how rich and creamy this drink is! Cacao covers so many flavors that you can’t even taste the avocado or moringa. It’s good to be sneaky some times. 🙂
