Have you tried an avocado smoothie before? Don’t judge just yet… I’m not completely crazy! You at least have to try these healthy, creamy and delicious smoothie recipes!
First- avocado’s are oh so creamy! They blend so well in smoothies. Especially helpful if you are not a banana lover or want to cut back on your fruit/natural sugar intake. Replace bananas with avocados for the same creamy texture!
Second- you can’t even taste the avocado! (I’m being serious) The taste of the avocado is masked from the almond milk & fruit!
Third- avocados are HEALTHY! Health benefits of avocados: provides a dose of healthy fats, a high fiber content & is a vitamin and mineral powerhouse… to name just a few benefits of avocados!
Fourth- they belong to the fruit family & not the veggie family 🙂
Avocado & Granny Smith Apple Smoothie
1 granny smith apple
1-2 cups leafy greens of choice (I used a mixture of kale & spinach)
1/2 an avocado
1/2 cup Unsweetened Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk Blend (I know it’s a mouthful)
1/2 tsp vanilla (optional)
Dash of cinnamon (optional)
Handful of ice cubes.
Optional: Feel free to add your Superfood of choice to the smoothie- maca, flax seeds, chia seeds, spirulina, chlorella… etc.
Look at how creamy that baby is? Yum!! I love a creamy smoothie! I need a spoon & straw for this one! Especially when it is a full meal!
Blueberry Avocado Smoothie
1 cup of blueberries or mixed berries
1-2 cups spinach
1/2 an avocado
3/4 cup coconut flavoured almond milk
Handful of ice.
Place all ingredients in blender & blend until creamy! Serve & enjoy!
*If the avocado smoothies are not sweet enough for you feel free to add a few drops of stevia or sweetener of choice.
*I find it best to blend all fruit, veggies and liquid and then add in the ice and blend again at the end.
