Smoothies are a staple at my house. We drink them for breakfast, post-workout recovery drinks, and for a delicious snack option! I love them because they feel like a little treat even though, if done right, they can be packed with some serious nutrition! I'm excited to bring you a Creamy Avocado Cacao Smoothie recipe, using New Horizon® Organic High Protein Chocolate Milk in Reduced Fat Chocolate Milk to create a smoothie that will surely become your new favorite!
We are huge chocolate milk lovers in my house and now that I have discovered that New Horizon Organic High Protein Chocolate Milk packs 12 grams of organic protein into each 8-ounce serving, I have found my new favorite chocolate milk brand and my new favorite smoothie ingredient! High Protein Chocolate Milk is such a great addition to any recovery smoothie post workout. It's also satisfying enough for a delicious breakfast that will stay with you until lunchtime because of its protein content!
I created a creamy avocado cacao smoothie that could easily pass as dessert but is loaded with some serious nutrition! This smoothie has a full serving of spinach, fruits, healthy fats and, thanks to New Horizon Organic High Protein Chocolate Milk, has a complete source of dairy protein! The chocolate milk makes this smoothie extra smooth and delicious, and you are going to love it!
After a hard workout, I crave something that will nourish my body and that will help support strong muscles—and New Horizon Organic Protein Milk does just that! My whole family has been loving this chocolate milk and while we all love this smoothie, a glass on its own is delicious and satisfying!
