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.
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)
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!
