Avocado Smoothies

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 🙂

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.
