Strawberry and Avocado Smoothie

Smoothies are my favorite on-the-go options - for breakfast, pre or post-workout or even for a snack, there is always a good occasion to sip on a refreshing and healthy drink. 

The choices are infinite with so many different healthy combinations.  I love trying new recipes and this one is a good alternative for people who look at their “sugar intake” and want to try a low-glycemic version as I am using the avocado the give it its creamy texture instead of bananas.

It is super quick and easy and it takes less than 5 minutes to prepare it.

Healthy Strawberry and Avocado Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • Half of a medium avocado (~50g)
  • ½ cup frozen strawberries (~100g)
  • 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or any of your favorite milk)
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (~22g)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp rolled oats (optional)
  • Filtered water (optional)

Directions:

  • Add all ingredients into a high powered blender
  • Blend until smooth. Add water to reach the consistency you desire.
  • Enjoy!

For the banana lovers, you can always switch the avocado for a medium frozen banana. Smoothies are just a simply way to increase your nutrients intake (especially because most of the food used is consumed raw). You can be very creative by mixing up greens (spinach, kale...), fruits & veggies (think about frozen cauliflower or beets) and superfood (hemp seeds, maca powder, raw cacao powder, chia seeds...).
