Avocado Cacao Smoothie

This smoothie is the perfect breakfast brain food - full of good fats and protein to fuel your brain and keep you full until your next meal. In fact, one smoothie I made was so filling I couldn't eat it all in one go, a rarity for someone with an appetite like mine! It is basically like eating chocolate mousse for breakfast, except it is actually avocado and cacao, two powerful anti-inflammatory, protein, vitamin and antioxidant rich superfoods. I found the inspiration for this creation from Hungry for Change's post about why chocolate is good for you (best news ever, I know!). I added and subtracted ingredients according to the contents of my cupboard and voilĂ , a delicious, healthy and filling breakfast smoothie that you can top with all your favourites.
