Mexican Chocolate Mocha Smoothie

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Blended avocado, chocolate, coffee, cinnamon and cayenne chili pepper go into this decadent Mexican chocolate mocha smoothie.

My husband tells me the kids (and by “kids” I mean anyone younger than me) in the neighborhood are calling next Tuesday Cinco de Drinko. I’m pretty sure this smoothie isn’t what they have in mind.

It’s unlikely I’ll be celebrating with tequila or beer or whatever the local pubs are likely to be offering. I don’t handle that stuff as well as I might have ten or so years ago. This drinko, on the other hand, has all of my current personal favorite vices: coffee, chocolate and hot peppers. What more could I ask for to celebrate our southern neighbor’s independence?
