Two-for-One Chocolate Avocado Smoothie/Pudding

FREE Smoothies For Weight Loss Bundle

Today’s guest post is from Anna from Your Healthy Place website.  She writes some very inspiring articles on changing your attitude towards food and has an amazing collection of healthy recipes and cookbook with samples for you to try.

Anna Wootton from YourHealthyPlace.caMy name is Anna Wootton and I am a certified health coach at YourHealthyPlace.ca and creator of Life is About FUN, Not Food!, an 8-week program that helps women overcome emotional eating and regain control of their weight and their life.

When Katherine contacted me about doing a blog post, the timing could not have been more perfect. I am a big fan of recipes that have you in the kitchen for as little amount of time as possible, and because I encourage my clients to always nourish and fuel their body but not restrict their cravings, I was just about to get to work on a decadent green smoothie involving two of my favourite things: avocados and chocolate!

While this smoothie may not look green (it is, I promise, but cocoa’s brown tends to trump avocado’s green!), it certainly is thick, so I’m hoping the Green Thickies readers appreciate it!

healthyplace-logoIn fact, because I use ground flaxseed in this smoothie (always a great addition for its Omega-3s!), the longer you leave this to sit the thicker it gets. I actually have half of this smoothie with a sandwich for lunch, for example, and then put the rest in the fridge and by dinnertime it’s thickened up so I have the rest as a pudding for dessert! Nothing like a two-for-one smoothie recipe, right?

I hope you enjoy, and come hang out with me some time at Your Healthy Place, or on TwitterFacebookInstagram or Pinterest!
