A sweet tasting avocado smoothie made with pineapple, banana, baby spinach, Swiss chard, coconut milk, and of course avocado is enjoyable drinking and very satisfying. Avocado smoothies are wonderfully refreshing, packed with nutrients, and beneficial to help me get my day started.
After a long weekend of stress, because of a predicted major snow storm, ice storm, my teen ill with a virus, changing tickets to Texas and to New York, all to find out that it was not as BIG as the storm was predicted. I needed to get back to some normalcy.
Our family loves and eats avocados almost every day. So adding them to smoothies was a no brainer. Avocado provides not only nutrients, but also gives the rich and creamy texture to the smoothie, similar to a thick and rich milkshake. It also provides a healthy fat, leaving you feeling full and satisfied for most of the day.
Making smoothies are really effortless. Fun too! We like to pack them with nutrients that can provide essential vitamins, healthy fats and fiber to help create the perfect morning boost. We love this recipe because it really makes an enjoyable taste and texture, like I am having a luscious dreamy milkshake. Yum!
