Creamy Chocolate Avocado Smoothie
This is no ordinary green avocado smoothie - it's a creamy double layered chocolate version made with our cacao powder! It's great for satisfying those sweet chocolate cravings without the sugar crash! With the added health benefits of maca powder and chia seeds, it's the perfect nourishing breakfast or snack! - Kira Constable

1 medium avocado (peeled and de-seeded)
2 large handfuls of spinach
