Also known as my daily smoothie, this creamy Chocolate Blueberry Smoothie with frozen blueberries, avocado, dates, and cacao is the smoothie I always come back to. It tastes like a dreamy chocolate milkshake and is actually satisfying thanks to all the healthy fats. This banana-free blend packs 8g plant protein and 10g fiber. Make it in the blender in 5 minutes and say hello, breakfast!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 heaping cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 ripe avocado
  • 1 large pitted Medjool date
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 ice cubes (optional for thickness)
  • optional: 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, handful of spinach


  1. Place all ingredients in a high speed blender or Nutribullet. Blend until completely smooth and creamy.
  2. Pour into a glass and top with cacao nibs for crunch. Devour!


Soak dates in a bowl of hot water for 5 minutes to soften up if they're hard.

For an even creamier smoothie, you can use half an avocado. You can also use frozen avocado and omit the ice.
