chocolate slushy

Now that the weather is getting warmer my kids and I like to enjoy refreshing drinks. This chocolate slushy not only served is purposed by being refreshing, but it was easy and perfect for the occasion.

I actually have other slushy recipes in the blog that are equally refreshing. These require fruit so a little bit different than this chocolate slushy version but still delish.

For this slushy I used one of the new products from Silk, Dark Chocolate + Walnut Nutchello which only contains 14 grams of sugar per serving, has no artificial colors or flavors and is verified by the Non-GMO Project’s product verification program.

They have other amazing flavors with even less sugar, The Toasted Coconut + Cashew Nutchello only has 9 grams per serving and it is also equally good. You can also use this one for the slushy, which ever flavor you prefer.

You can sign up to receive the Silk newsletters and take advantage of their many coupons. If you use their products I suggest you sign, you will get many of their coupons and get their products for an awesome price.

Because I used a lot of ice I also used some frozen bananas for this slushy recipe. You can use just ice, or just frozen bananas for the recipe. Either way it will turn out fine but I wanted to mix it up so that the slushy didn’t turn to sweet. My kids loved it so I know I will be making it again soon.

It is a super easy drink that is a great alternative to all the sweet sugary drinks the kids drink over the summer and year round. To make it more fun doing a slushy version was genius for my kids and I think yours would like it too.

And by the way, if you would like to make this drink for an adult version you can add some booze like Kahlua, Baileys, or any other creamy alcohol to it, just saying!

Enjoy!

  1. Avocado and chocolate…a heavenly match, isn’t it?!

  2. Loving this yummilicious and luscious smoothie.

  3. Can you taste the banana?

  4. I love this type of smoothie. I just used avocado in my smoothie this morning, it makes them so incredibly rich!

  5. Does it work without the protein powder? My kids pediatrician recommends they don’t have protein powder often. Something to do with it being hard on their kidneys. But, my son needs to gain weight and otherwise, this seems like a perfect smooths for him. I guess I am wondering if it will taste chocolate enough or would I add more cocoa.

  6. I think my mom (which is very much into those kind of things and tasts would like). But on my side, honestly? The taste of the avocado is VERY strong & overpower’s any other taste. I had tu put apple sauce, lots more coco-powder, hot chocolate powder, maple sirup to try to balance it out & still… I could barely taste the chocolate since the avocado taste was so strong. Mabe my avocados were biger than normal… but it didn’t seem to me.

    So I guess a good recepie for avocado lovers but on my side, i’ll keep them for yummy guacamole!

    • Even w/ the 3 ripe bananas in it? Maybe your bananas weren’t that ripe and that is why the avocado flavor was over powering the smoothie bc w/ 2 avocados and 3 bananas the flavor of the avocados shouldn’t be that intense at all.
