Avocado Smoothie

I tried to think of a cute title to this post, but alas, they were all duds. So I’m keeping it simple.

Today we’re rapping ’bout…you guessed it…avocados in your smoothies.

I’m a huge fan of smoothies for breakfast, especially when it’s 80 degrees at 7am. I had a bunch of extra avocados on hand from making guacamole this weekend, and I thought I’d toss a little bit into my morning smoothie (instead of the almond butter).

The result: Heavenly. But I knew it would be because ANYTHING with avocados is God’s gift to us.

I added about 1/4 avocado and the result was a delicious, creamy, and satisfying meal. And you can’t taste the avocado, btw. Since I also added a bunch of kale, the drink was an olivey green color.

Today’s smoothie:

1/2 banana

ground flaxseed (I dont measure, I just dump in..about 3T)

1T flax/borage oil

bunch of kale

1/2 cup frozen blue berries (frozen from my farmer’s market)

1/2 cup frozen strawberries (Cascadian Farm’s organic)

1T Lucuma powder

2 scoops  rice protein (I use Metagenics)

drop of vanilla extract, dash of cinnamon

1 cup organic unsweetened almond milk

Throw it into my Vitamix and blend. I usually top off with raw cacao but I ran out today.

Drank it up at 8am and was full until 1:30! Now THAT’S a satisfying, healthy breakfast!
