Deliciously Healthy Avocado Blueberry Smoothie Recipe
A healthy, low carb Avocado Blueberry Smoothie, made high in protein with healthy fats for staying power. This delicious green blueberry smoothie is the perfect breakfast or snack.
BLUEBERRY SPINACH SMOOTHIE WITH AVOCADO
This smoothie is power-packed with everything you need to start your day off on the right tone.
Avocado, spinach, and blueberries are all nutrient-packed superfoods, and combined into a creamy smoothie make breakfast magic.
This is not a very sweet smoothie. To keep it lower in carbs, I left out banana, which I almost always add to my smoothies. It’s creamy from the almond milk and optional whey protein, and the perfect way to power up before a workout or if you know you need a little extra to make it all the way to lunch.
INGREDIENTS IN AN AVOCADO BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE
-Spinach – just a handful to keep this from being too thick!
-Yogurt – use what you love.
-Unsweetened Coconut – I love the texture this adds but it’s optional if you don’t love coconut!
-Optional for sweet-tooths: Honey or your favorite sweetener.
HOW TO MAKE THIS HEALTHY SMOOTHIE
Either buy frozen blueberries or freeze your blueberries prior to making this smoothie. Frozen blueberries are actually sweeter than fresh! It’s also okay to freeze avocado halves that are about to go bad and use them up for smoothies! Fresh or frozen avocado is fine here.
Add all ingredients to a blender, and process until thick and creamy. I like my smoothies very thick, but if you prefer thinner, add more almond milk or less ice.
Taste, and adjust by adding sweetener or additional milk.
MEET YOUR NEW MORNING SMOOTHIE
Smoothies can be a very healthy breakfast, or a calorie and sugar bomb. Choosing to add veggies and healthy fats, like spinach and avocados, helps bulk up your smoothie without adding the sugar of multiple servings of fruit.
Make your smoothie even healthier by using almond milk instead of a juice, which only adds more sugar. Most of the time, you’ll find you don’t need the extra sweetness anyway.
So, give this recipe a try! It is healthy and delicious.
