1/4 cup almonds (soak first if you like)
7 oz water
1-2 Tbs raw cacao powder
1-2 Tbs raw agave nectar
2-3 ice cubes
Soak almonds first in water for an hour, if you like, then drain. Place in blender with 7 oz water and blend until smooth. You can now choose to strain out the almond pulp if you want a very smooth milkshake or keep it in for more fiber and protein.
Add avocado, cacao and agave nectar, blend until very smooth.
Ahh...chocolatey raw goodness! (This doesn't have to be raw. You could use any prepared non-dairy milk, regular cocoa powder and any kind of sweetener. I can see this being very tasty with coconut milk, a little mint at the holidays or even cinnamon and nutmeg.)
