Paleo chocolate pudding smoothie

Ingredients (makes 2 servings):

1/2 ripe avocado

2/3 cup zucchini, peeled

2 pitted deglet noor dates (dates from Saudi Arabia or the UAE)

2 tbl. cacao powder (NOT cocoa powder, cacao powder)

1 scoop vanilla or chocolate protein powder (protein source of your choosing, i.e. whey, egg white, etc)

2 tbl. unsweetened flaked coconut (omit if you don’t like the flavor of coconut)

2 tbl. pumpkin seeds

1 cup “milk” of choice

2 ice cubes


Add all ingredients to Vitamix blender and blend on smoothie/frozen setting until smooth.  No Vitamix?  Use a food processor, a regular bender won’t do.  Add one packet of monk fruit in the raw or stevia in the raw if you don’t think it will be sweet enough for you.
