Chocolate deluxe protein smoothie

What's one of the ways to have chocolate for breakfast and still be able to justify it somehow? This smoothie. It's life-changing. SO GOOD. Okay I'll stop now, because you need to read on and find out how to make this beauty. It's been my go-to smoothie after workouts or in the morning. Rich & delicious without the sugar but with a protein kick. The perfect start to the day or a mid-day treat.

What you’ll need
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 1 banana
- 2 tablespoons of low fat quark
- 2 teaspoons of raw cacao
- 1/2 scoop of Double Chocolate Gold Standard Whey Protein (this stuff tastes seriously good unlike most protein powders)
- 1/2 cup of milk 
- 1/2 cup of water

Blend all the ingredients until smooth and serve up in a nice glass with some cacao nibs/pomegranate/blueberries/coconut on top. Your super chocolate-y smoothie is ready now. 

The avocado might sound like a weird addition but trust me, you can't taste it and it makes the smoothie ultra-smooth. In case you don't have protein powder, leave it out, the quark already adds some protein to the smoothie. This is a relatively filling smoothie because of the banana, avocado and protein, so it will keep you going until lunch (in case you have it for breakfast).
