Chocolate Avocado Sunrise Protein Smoothie
Vibrant Method Test Kitchen Original!

Avocado in a breakfast smoothie?! Heck Ya! Avocados have nearly 20 essential vitamins and minerals and act as a “nutrient booster” by helping your body better absorb nutrients from the other superfood elements in this protein smoothie. Avocados improve overall immunity, muscle development, digestion, metabolism, and cardiovascular, bone and skin health. They are also the ideal substitute for healthy-fat nuts for those with nut sensitivities or allergies. They lend the perfect creamy texture of this ultra-filling morning breakfast shake. Memory-improving mixed berries are crucial to nervous system and brain health. As a low-glycemic superfruit, they are loaded with Vitamin K, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory elements. Raw cocoa is the highest whole food source of magnesium, which also happens to be the most deficient mineral in the diet of modern cultures. Magnesium relaxes muscles, improves peristalsis in the bowels and relaxes the heart and cardiovascular system. Half a banana yields just the right amount of sweetness without tipping the glycemic impact while providing some Vitamin B6 and potassium. This decadent morning treat will have you thinking you’re eating velvety chocolate pudding for breakfast. Consider this your high protein + high fat sunrise indulgence to kick start your fat-burning metabolism for a vibrant body!
