Chocolate Avocado Shake

Chocolate Avocado Shake:

(click photo for larger size)

1 ripe avocado, peeled and seeded
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk or 1/4 cup honey (i used the honey and it was really good)
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
2 cups vanilla flavored rice, soy, or almond milk
(If using 2 cups plain milk, add 1 teaspoon ‘pure’ vanilla extract plus an extra splash of condensed milk or honey)
2 shots espresso, optional (and of course, i used espresso!)
1 cup crushed ice

Optional garnish:
Shaved chocolate
Whipped cream (doesn't need these at all!)

Put ice, milk of choice, avocado, cocoa, and sweetened condensed milk (or honey) and espresso into a blender and blend until smooth, about 30 seconds. Serve.

what does it taste like? well, you know those gallon (and 1/2 gal.) jugs of thick fatty chocolate milk? it's like drinking that but with some espresso added in.
