Blueberry-Avocado Smoothie

Today, I’m sharing with you my latest smoothie creation. I love smoothies. Love. LOVE!

This one is decent on the health scale: antioxidants from the blueberries, healthy fats from chia seeds and avocado, and completely vegan (as long as you don’t add honey, which is optional anyway). The texture threw me off a little (still getting used to blended avocado) but give it a go and see what you think!


Blueberry-Avocado Smoothie (makes enough for 2)

1-2 handfuls spinach* (about 1.5-2 cups)

1 cup almond milk*

1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (if you use fresh, add some ice cubes)

1 avocado, ripe, pitted and peeled

2 tbsp chia seeds

1 pear, washed and cored

1/2 – 1 cup filtered water (or coconut water)

optional: add 2 tbsp agave, honey, or fresh pear or apple juice if you want it a little sweeter

 

Put all ingredients together and blend, then put into a cute little mason jar and go.

*If, like me, you don’t have a badass Vitamix (and if you do, congratulations!), blend the spinach and almond milk together first by themselves. It helps to get the spinach blended more thoroughly so you have fewer icky chunks.

  1. We made this smoothie just this morning and I had to write to tell you it tasted fantastic. The blueberries are a fantastic food for a healthy breakfast or snack. The blueberries are fantastic and we use them heavily because they are shown to cause the body to lose fat. Thank you.
