When it comes to breakfast, there are two camps: Savory and sweet. Of course, there’s crossover (sometimes a savory person is feeling sweet or vice versa) and of course, sometimes we want both — because don’t we just want to have it all? And for those times, there’s this double-chocolate smoothie. It’s incredible creamy, thanks to avocado and coconut milk, and it hits that I-just-want-chocolate-for-breakfast craving thanks to not one, but two doses of chocolate. Even better? It’s 100% keto-friendly, not to mention 100% delicious.
