Big news, guys! Eatmail subscribers already know this, and it’s sort of good news and bad news. The bad news is that I won’t be coming out with new recipes/sending the Eatmail for the next three weeks (*gasp!*). But the good news is after that three weeks I’m going to have some major recipe inspiration…of the Asian variety. That’s right, I’m headed to Asia!

If you’ve navigated to the “Live” side of the menu bar, you may have noticed I like to travel/talk about travel/photograph my travels a lot. I’ve gallivanted around Europe, hiked through South America (and picked up a boyfriend-tulip-man along the way), and experienced Africa, but Asia hasn’t worked its way into my schedule, that is until now.

The general itinerary will involve us starting in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and eventually making our way to Bangkok, Thailand. If you’ve ever visited these parts and have food/fun recommendations, I’d love it if you’d drop a comment below!

Avocado Chocolate Smoothie

So onto today’s recipe, a Chocolate Avocado Smoothie. Apparently in much of the Southeast Asian cuisine, avocados are eaten as a sweet rather than savory. We did the whole avocado chocolate pie thing, but if you’re crunched for time and just want a simple, decadent smoothie without loads of guilt, whip up this heathy avocado smoothie!

    What a unique idea! I’ve never thought of using avocados in sweet recipes before, but this has definitely changed my mind about that 🙂 Pinning it for later!

  4. Maggie Unzueta says:

    Looks so rich and perfect. Avocado, must try it!

  5. Madeline says:

    I have heard avocado can make a great smoothie/ice cream, but have been skeptical. This though looks perfectly creamy and deliciious!!! <3

  6. Lauren says:

    I’ve seen avocado with chocolate pudding before – this looks awesome!

  7. Heather says:

    Yum! That sounds more like a milk shake which is great with me!

    I’ve tried using avocado in my recipes like this one. I see it done all of the time. Your smoothie looks divine!

  12. Svetoslav Dimitrov says:

    Oh, My, God!

    This sounds like a super epic smoothie! I adore them – I drink every day. My favourites are with bananas, peaches, carob powder and fresh ginger (I add water or oat nut milk to make it smoother).

    I am definitely trying this!

    Thanks!5 stars

    1. Sarah says:

      Thanks, Svetoslav!! I’ve never actually tried carob powder, sounds like you have a pretty epic smoothie routine as well though! 🙂

  13. Susie says:

    My daugther and i made this and it tastes awesome! She calls it pudding lol thanks for sharing!

    1. Sarah says:

      So happy to hear, Susie! Haha , it can be a little thick. Don’t hesitate to add some milk to thin it out 🙂

  14. Therese says:

    This was fabulous! Mine was the consistency of pudding, but I didn’t mind a bit. Just ate it with a spoon. I substituted the brown sugar with two packets of Stevia to make it more Keto diet friendly.5 stars

    1. Sarah says:

      Yay, so happy to hear Therese! It’s definitely on the thicker side, but you could thin it out with a bit of milk next time if you prefer a more liquid smoothie 🙂

  15. Amy Marie Orozco says:

    I just made this, and will be making it again and again. It was delicious. Very delicious. I found I needed more milk. I used plain soy milk. Next time I may add some roasted almonds or walnuts for some crunch. Also may substitute agave or honey. I’m really happy with my new find of a recipe. I live in an area known for avocados, so it’s always nice to have new and different recipes. Thank you.5 stars

    1. Sarah says:

      Ah so nice you have an excess of avocados! I would make this smoothie all the time in that case 😀 Enjoy playing around with the ingredients in it!
