avocado with coffee? i know, it sounds weird. but its actually pretty good. the avocado adds a creaminess to the drink without overpowering the taste. in fact, i barely taste it at all.
this can be made with instant coffee powder, or a coffee substitute powder (i have tried both pero and cafix). i often go for the latter, as i can not handle too much caffeine after morning time (it affects my ability to fall asleep at night).
mocha avocado shake
2 tsp instant coffee powder OR coffee substitute powder OR 1 starbucks via packet (if you really need caffeine!)
1/2 avocado, peeled and pitted
1 cup of milk
3-5 ice cubes
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp cocoa powder
5-8 drops of liquid stevia
1. combine all in a blender and blend on high until smooth. make sure the ice is completely crushed.
