Chocolate Raspberry Creme Smoothie

Another full meal deal smoothie.    This one is thick and creamy thanks to the addition of avocado, and the chocolate flavor disguises the baby greens!  Slurp!

  1. Tessa this looks amazing! I just posted a cantaloupe smoothie last week using Great Lakes Gelatin (an excellent grass fed source of gelatin). Love having a quick breakfast with one of these smoothies. Can’t wait to try this :)!

    This looks amazing, Tessa! Wow! I think you’ve got something there with the gelatin. I’ve been making smoothies every morning (with hemp protein) – so thick and creamy. That’s really my idea of a smoothie. Thick and creamy. Love! :-)

  3. Amy Jo says:

    This is gorgeous and absolutely delicious!

  4. So my last three breakfasts have been submissions to Raw Foods Thursdays. And now I just found my breakfast for tomorrow! Thank you! (And tomorrow’s my birthday, so Chocolate Raspberry Creme Smoothie sounds like a perfect way to start the day!)

  5. This one looks great too. Thanks for sharing at Wildcrafting Wednesday.

  6. Love it! I need to add avocado to my shopping list. I made a chocolate pudding a few times for the kids that included avocado and they ate it up, no questions.

    Thanks for another great recipe for Motivation Monday!

    YUM! This looks like a great morning smoothie :) Thank you!

  9. This sounds great! My hubby and I have been enjoying avocado in our smoothies and it keeps me full till lunchtime! With all those greens and berries, the colors we make aren’t always so appetizing but yours looks great!

  10. Lol, I love that you slipped greens in there and no one would ever know ;) Thanks for sharing this on WNWNW, I’ve pinned it.

  11. Kathy says:

    I wandered here from Fight Back Friday (I think). This was a BIG hit at our Easter brunch (I double the raspberries).

    thank-you.

    Another great recipe that packs a healthy punch! Thanks for sharing over on Tuesday Greens.

  19. You’d never even know there was baby spinach in this smoothie, what a great drink to give a nice hidden health kick! It looks really creamy too, like I should get a spoon and dig in like dessert :)
