Since drinking a chocolate milkshake for breakfast would be unhealthy, why not turn that into a healthy drink instead? I developed The Best Chocolate Smoothie on that idea! I use super healthy ingredients such as avocado, dates, almond milk, spinach, cocoa powder, coconut, and chia seeds. Blend all of that together with some ice cubes and you have a creamy, chocolatey smoothie that tastes like a milkshake. Begin your day with tons of nutrition with The Best Chocolate Smoothie!

What Are the Health Benefits of Dates?
Dates are considered a highly nutritious dried fruit, which are picked from a date palm tree. They are chewy and sweet, and are commonly used as a sweetener in healthy baking. Dates are packed with high amounts of fiber and a low glycemic index. They are also high in disease-fighting anti-oxidants which also contribute to brain health. Dates are super easy to integrate into your diet, and are great in all smoothies!
Smoothies are the best way to get all the fruits and veggies you need in a day. Want more smoothies? Try my Raspberry Mocha Smoothie with Protein!
