This is a truly healthy smoothie option for you chocolate lovers out there. Raspberry paired with dark chocolate and sea salt makes this an unforgettable snack or breakfast.


  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • ½ avocado, pitted
  • ½ large very ripe banana, sliced and frozen
  • 3 tablespoons natural cocoa powder or raw cacao
  • big pinch (about ½ tsp) sea salt
  • 1 ½ cups milk of choice (I use brown rice milk)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds, optional
  • 23 soft Medjool dates (can substitute 23 tsp honey)


  1. Add everything to the blender and puree on high for a minute or two. You should arrive at a thick consistency—think slightly melted frozen yogurt.
  2. Taste and adjust to your liking, then pour into a glass and enjoy immediately.
