I have been playing around with smoothies. Trying to find a concoction that is both tasty and will fill me up for quite a while. It also has to be full of healthy ingredients.
This is my latest smoothie! Its so tasty and easy to make on a work day. You can even make it the night before and store it in the refrigerator.
These measurements are all approximate. Sometimes I add a little more or a little less of some ingredients depending on what I have on hand. I’m not a fan of banana in my smoothie. If you like banana, you could substitute one in for the avocado.
Berry Smoothie (Paleo/ Dairy Free/ Vegan/ Refined Sugar Free)
1/4-1/2 ripe avocado (depending on the size) **
1 c. berries (mix and match)
1 c. spinach leaves
1 Tbsp. ground flax (I’m sure chia seeds would work well)
1 Tbsp almond butter (or any nut butter)
1 Tbsp. honey (use maple syrup for vegan)
1/2-3/4 c. water (or whatever milk/milk free product you use)
1 Tbsp coconut oil
Put all the ingredients into a ninja, magic bullet, or blender. Blend until smooth.
Makes one large serving or two smaller ones.
** I sprinkle lemon juice on the remaining avocado and wrap it in plastic wrap.
Store it in the fridge. It will go a little brown, I just cut that part off.
