Yacht week is right around the corner! I needed a (healthy-ish) mix-up to my normal kale smoothie, so I researched different types of smoothie recipes. I've always wanted to try a smoothie made with avocado instead of a banana - voila! Easy to make and very filling!
As I have suggested before - I'd pick up your avocados from the store a few days before you plan to make anything with avocados. I put mine in a bowl with my bananas and apples and they seem to ripen up in one or two days.
Berry & Avocado Smoothie, recipe adapted from various sources
- 1 cup blueberries (or you could do 1/2 cup strawberries, 1/2 cup blueberries)
- 1/2 avocado
- 2 tsp. flax seed
- 1 tsp. whey protein powder
- 2 handfuls spinach
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup water
- a few ice cubes if you aren't using frozen fruit
Place the the almond milk and water in the blender first, then the spinach/berries/avocado, and then the flax seed and protein powder. Blend everything for a minute or two. If I'm not drinking this immediately, I put it into a blender bottle, and store in my fridge to grab on the go the next morning.
