This requires a Vitamix or other high speed blender
1/2 cup almond or coconut milk
a handful of ice (frozen almond or coconut milk--or the chocolate version
thereof--may be used instead
1 medium-large avocado (or two small)
2-3 tbs organic cocoa powder (I use Trader Joe's)
a shake or two of ground cinnamon, if desired
a generous splash or two of vanilla
a generous splash of Kahlua or Frangelica, if desired, to keep 'em guessing
a squeeze of honey, agave or coconut nectar
Put ingredients into Vitamix in the above order.
Quickly adjust Variable Speed from 0-10, then put on High Speed, using the tamper until it is all mixed together (less than one minute). Ideally, you will hear the sound change while four "peaks" form, but many do not hear this, so expect to blend between one and two minutes and don't stress about it.
Taste and enjoy, making adjustments as listed below if necessary.
As with any of my "recipes," have fun and play around! You can add a handful of nuts if desired, banana...even a small amount of leftover grapes or spinach (yes, you hear correctly)
Too soft and squishy? Add frozen banana or more avocado
Too firm? Add more almond or coconut milk.
You cannot go wrong! When adding ingredients, follow the same Vitamix steps as above, but run only until mixed, about 30 seconds
