This entry is part of a food blogging challenge, to write about smoothies. Food Blogger Connect conference is the largest event of it’s kind in Europe for food bloggers and writers. This year Cuisinart has partnered with FBC (as official small domestic appliance partner) for a fabulous giveaway: two full weekend conference tickets to two very lucky winners and an opportunity to participate in the cooking demonstration with Celebrity Chef Anjum Anand. The challenge is to create your own smoothie or make a smoothie recipe from Cuisinart or Anjum Anand’s books and post it on their blog and on the Food Blogger Connect Facebook page by 8th of July, 2011 and tweet about it. I started posting my recipes in the general posts and then realised that actually they were great breakfasts for busy single people – so I am going to post them all as unique posts in the recipe section!
My inspiration for my first smoothie, chocolate avocado smoothie has has come from Fuss Free Flavours, who wrote a great article on an avocado pear and chocolate mousse. I thought the key ingredients would make a great smoothie too, with the addition of some natural yoghurt. So here it is, chocolate and avocado smoothie. For instructions on how to make it, head over to the 1+ recipe section here
