Vegan Layered Avocado Shakes

If you think these taste like avocados, think again. #chocolatefix


Notes from the LHTC Team:

I'm always looking for ways to make my smoothies more creamy and luscious (read: more milkshake-like). Frozen bananas are a great way to achieve that goal, however they tend to add a banana flavor (obvi.) - and that's not always what I'm going for, especially in the chocolate mint layered "shake" detailed below. In this case, a cubed and frozen avocado actually works perfect. Creamy and smooth texture with a very mild flavor that is completely masked by chocolate, mint, strawberries or whatever your flavor of choice may be.
