This Vegan Green Avocado Smoothie uses just 5 ingredients and is delicious & easy to make, with healthy fats and greens. Plus, it’s Vegan & Gluten-Free!
Hello, friends! I hope you are having wonderful days. In Slovenia, spring has come super early this year as we have been enjoying the sunshine and warm temperatures for days now! The first spring flowers are out already, it’s sunny and just perfect weather! We’re already starting thinking about how to plant the garden this year, although it’s way too early for that 🙂
But, as we think about the yummy veggies we’ll be planting, we’re already adding greens to our meals! So, we have already shared our love for green smoothies (think Detox Spinach Green Smoothie and if you hate bananas – Pineapple Spinach Green Smoothie) and today we’re sharing another delicious combination: a Vegan Green Avocado Smoothie!
This Vegan Green Avocado Smoothie is creamy, delicious and really easy to make! Just place ingredients into a blender, blend until smooth and you’re ready to drink!
At first, I was skeptical about putting avocado in a smoothie, mainly because I have only recently started eating avocados and mostly link the ingredient to savory meals. So adding an avocado to a banana smoothie?
But I’ve seen so many bloggers doing just that and given the health benefits of avocados, I decided to try it out.
And guys, I am converted!
This Avocado Smoothie is just perfect! It’s slightly sweet, there is no overwhelming banana taste, you can not even taste the spinach, it’s creamy and yet light and tangy, thanks to the added lemon juice.
This avocado smoothie will greatly add to your daily nutrition, as adding avocados to smoothies helps you get your intake of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals! And, thought this smoothie is a bit higher in fat, it’s mostly healthy fats (and less sugar), which will release your blood sugars slowly and help you fill full longer!
Plus, this Vegan Green Avocado Smoothie is really delicious!! (coming from someone who generally does not enjoy vegetables in drinks so much!)
- 1 banana
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 1/2 cup plain coconut yogurt
