Chocolate Blend Dessert Shake

This one is a sweet version of my standard morning shake. The kids love it and it's a great sneaky way to get some good fats into my very fussy son! I personally like it really cold, so I often put it in the freezer for 5 minutes after I have made it or/and use coconut milk that has been in the fridge overnight. The mix of the avocado, banana and coconut milk make this one so creamy, like eating a cream! This one is a great one to make with the kids.
