I’ve been craving from Avocado Mousse and have been patiently, patientlyyy waiting for my avocados to ripen on the counter. This time, I wanted it to be dark — dark chocolate dark.

I was also a day too late for National Spinach Day (who knew such a thing existed?), but nevertheless, this was worth the wait. The baby spinach adds zero flavor and one hundred percent nutrients to this not-so-green machine. Toss in bananas, almond milk, some almond butter and now you’ve got yourself a healthy Chocolate Almond Butter Smoothie.
