Avocado Chocolate Oat Smoothie
From “the Avocado Affair”
Vegan, Gluten-free, dairy-free
Cacao, like avocado, provides us with even more health benefits.
When raw, cacao contains more antioxidants than acai, goji berries, blueberries, any tea, or red wine.
Catechin, one of the antioxidants found in cacao, may prevent cancer and reduce the risk of heart failure, stroke, and diabetes.
It is also being studied for potential use in the treatment of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
Oat is rich beta-glucan, a soluble fiber with numerous health benefits working with cocoa and avocado, in addition, it helps the digestion and increases the feeling of fullness.
½ ripe medium avocado
1 cup of water*
¼ cup rolled oats
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract spices at your convenience
1/4 cup blueberries or raspberries (optional)
*I use water, tea, or coffee, depending the moment of the day.
Blend all together to obtain a very syrupy smoothie, delivering energy and fullness feeling for few hours when you are stressed out with low energy
