Avocado Banana Green Energy Smoothie

1 Smoothie504 cals

Here’s the deal, today we’re making a smoothie with avocado. That alone might steer people away from this but let me tell you 3 reasons why we’re using avocado:

  1. For the healthy fat it provides
  2. It’ll give our shake a thick, creamy texture
  3. It’s a pretty neutral flavor in this so you can’t taste it at all

With that said take out a blender and add into it 3/4 cup or 6 ounces of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, 1 1/2 scoops or 45 grams 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!

Go ahead and blend it until everything is mixed together, pour it in a glass, and enjoy!

This smoothie is quick, about 80% cheaper than you could buy it for at a shop, tastes great, and should give you a kick start to the day. If that’s not enough incentive to at least try it once, I don’t know what is!!!

    I made this today and can’t believe how good it tasted. Used your protein powder. But not only did it taste great it really helped with a much needed energy boost prior to my morning workout. Btw I made your cauliflower pizza last night And that was amazing also.

    Thanks

    I like it! I’m going to add some ginger next time to make it zestier! Take that smoothie hipsters!

    I must admit, I was skeptical at first. I’ve always been the type though to muscle through things I don’t like for the health benefits. And I must say, I was blown away, this was amazing, it’s going to become my morning shake from here on out. Nice job!

      Glad you liked it Matt!!! Let me know if you try anything else!

        Shoot your site is my main knowledge of cooking since I’m stationed overseas with my family back in the states, everything I’ve made so far I’ve loved, later on I’ll take the time to leave comment on those as well.
