Serves 2


  • 1 ripe avocado (medium)
  • 3.5 oz bar dark chocolate (70-85% dark)
  • 2 Tbsp raw cacao powder (cocoa powder)
  • 3/4 cup milk of your choice
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup (add additional tbsp depending on your sweet preference)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 scoop protein powder of choice (I use Alaya Naturals Collagen Powder or the Alaya Naturals Grass Fed Whey)


  1. Roughly chop the chocolate.
  2. Set in a heatproof bowl and place over small pot of simmering water (about an inch of water in the pot, and make sure bowl does not touch the water).
  3. Stir occasionally until chocolate is melted and set aside.
  4. Scoop out the avocado flesh and add to the food processor.
  5. Add all the remaining ingredients including melted chocolate.
  6. Blend until smooth.
  7. Taste to see whether you'd like additional maple syrup.
  8. Eat right away or transfer to an airtight container and chill in fridge for up to 2 days.
