This extra thick and creamy chocolate smoothie bowl is fruit-free except for some low-sugar, heart-healthy avocado. It’s packed with nutrients like magnesium, protein, omega-3s and antioxidants and the taste and consistency is somewhere between chocolate pudding and cake batter.



  • 1 serving (44 g) Vega Performance Protein in Chocolate
  • 2 tbsp (15 g) raw cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp (20 g) chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp (15 g) nut butter of choice
  • 1 cup (125 g) frozen chopped zucchini
  • 1/4 cup (30 g) fresh or frozen avocado
  • 1/4 cup (30 g) fresh or frozen cooked, chopped sweet potato
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (optional)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plant-based milk or water


  1. Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and pulse until combined. To keep it extra thick, don’t over-mix or mix too long as the heat from the blender will melt it. Pulse until it’s all broken down and creamy but still a bit chunky.


To make this into a drinkable smoothie, increase liquid to 1 cup and then adjust as needed to reach desired consistency.
