Ready to kickstart your morning with a healthy avocado drink? Yes (don’t run), we’re going to make a drink with AVOCADO! This Avocado Banana Green Energy Smoothie recipe is full of nutrients, has great macros including protein, and is delicious!
Why avocado? Simple! It’s packed with healthy fat, will give your smoothie a creamy texture, and has a pretty neutral flavor (aka you can’t really taste it when mixed with other ingredients)!
Take out a blender and add into it 3/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla milk substitute, 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, 1 1/2 scoops of protein powder, 1/2 an avocado, 1 banana, 1 cup of kale or spinach, 1 or 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, and some ice!
Whatever flavor you use for your protein powder is up to you, I like vanilla for this recipe. As long as it compliments the banana, you should be good to go! Let me know if you try anything outside the box in the comments below.
Blend your green energy smoothie up until smooth.
Pour your smoothie in a glass or into a shaker bottle and you’re ready to go!
This green energy smoothie is super quick, about 80% cheaper than you could buy it for at a shop, and tastes amazing.
If that’s not enough incentive to at least try it once, I don’t know what is!
Now for your next healthy kickstart, go try our Iced Protein Coffee recipe.
