So what makes this smoothie “chocolate”? Raw cacao powder, which is a Mayan superfood with a ton of antioxidants as well as a great source for magnesium and iron. It’s gluten free, has ZERO grams of sugar, and is only 20 calories per tablespoon.
What makes this smoothie have a “mousse” texture? Avocado. Yepp…I put avocado in this smoothie. If you’re not familiar with this sneaky little trick, it’s life changing. Not only can you get the great health benefits of avocados (e.g. healthy fats and fiber) but it gives this flufffy, mousse-like texture to your smoothies!
