I'm pretty much all about this protein shake. Don't let the avocado scare you off, it doesn't taste avocadoy at all, it just adds good healthy fat and fiber and gives it a nice and creamy texture. It's really easy to whip up, super healthy, packed with protein and healthy fat and it also satisfies my sweet tooth :). The key is that it's made with healthy real food, aka no chemically tasting artificial protein powder here, the protein comes from hydrolyzed collagen which has a ton of health benefits (here is a great article about the benefits of collagen and how to incorporate more of it into your diet).
Chocolate Avocado Protein Shake
- 1/2 hass avocado
- 2 tablespoons hydrolyzed collagen (psst....you can buy it on Amazon)
- 1 cup maple water
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon stevia (use a bit more if you like it sweeter)
Toss all the ingredients into a blender and you're done! You can also top your shake with a sprinkle of cinnamon and sprig of mint just for a little extra flair.
