What's cooking? Wednesday - Chocolate Frosty, vegan style

Playing around with our new toy  :)

Last week my husband bought a new Vita-Mix blender and we've been experimenting with it, making smoothies and green drinks and stuff that I call glop  :)  We're trying not to use sugar, unhealthy fats or processed products in these experiments. 

I've been researching the internet for recipes that sound both palatable and healthy.  I found the following recipe on Pinterest and adapted it slightly.  The texture is really smooth and it's pretty good, although if I were cheating, I'd add some powdered sugar to sweeten it a bit more.

Chocolate Frosty
1 ripe banana, cut into 5-6 pieces
1/2 ripe avocado, cut into pieces
1 T. unsweetened cocoa
1/4 c. milk or milk substitute
2 c. crushed ice

Put all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  Enjoy!
Chocolate Frosty made with banana, avocado, unsweetened cocoa, milk, crushed ice.  That's it!  Healthy and tasty!


  1. Nice work! You guys inspired me to plan on eating more fruits and veggies this week. :-)

    1. Thanks Meghan! I was bad though and did add some powdered sugar after drinking about half of it :)
