Healthy Avocado Smoothie – All the GOOD Fats

I’ve always been a good eater, interested in different flavors, and a lover of food. In high school I loved making my family dinner, especially stir fry (see my favorite stir fry recipes here)! Things are still relatively the same. Stir fry is my JAYUM and I’ll pretty much cook for anyone. One of the best parts about growing up has been experiencing my love for food become even more intense. i just love food. I know I’ve been a food lover since the womb, but never in a million years did I think I’d be drinking avocado-based smoothies! One, because avocados are vegetables, right? (jk they are fruit) and two because avocados are full of fat. That’s right. I use to be one of “those.” A fraidy f(c)at! Guess what, that’s not me anymore. I am all about those healthy fats and feeding my body the nutrients it needs to survive and make sure I am strong enough to climb those hard routes at the climbing gym. This Avocado Banana Smoothie was born out of my desire to make a green smoothie that had some personality. IE: wasn’t actually made with “greens” but other ingredients to make it green! Insert: AVOCADO + MINT + CHOCOLATE CHIPS + Banana Now, beore you go BANANAS over this avocado smoothie, let’s chat about the best fruit from the fruit gods—> AVOCADO.

Avocado Smoothie Q & A

Is an avocado a fruit or is an avocado a vegetable? It’s a fruit, people. A savory, creamy, delicious fruit that is packed with monosaturated fatty acids (the good fat). Avocados are great on toast, smashed into guacamole, and in smoothies! We know you have questions when it comes to avocados, so here are some answers! Can you taste avocado in smoothies? Every taste pallet is different! The flavor of an avocado smoothie is very heavily based on what else you include in the smoothie. If you only add almond milk and avocado, you will end up with an avocado tasting smoothie. We love to incorporate a little something sweet like bananas, maple syrup, dates, or honey into avocado smoothies to offset the earthiness of the avocado. In this Green Smoothie Recipe we use avocado, cauliflower, and spinach and because we added a little sweet you would never know you’re drinking a glass of vegetables. #boom What fruits go well with avocado? When making an avocado smoothie, it is all about your personal taste pallet. Bananas and avocados go very well together because the sweetness of the bananas off set the earthiness of the avocado. However, get creative and throw an avocado into any of your favorite fruit smoothies. Adding avocado gives a smoothie the creamiest and most delicious texture! Do you peel avocados for smoothies? YES, never eat the peel of an avocado! A photo of an avocado banana smoothie

I haven’t made smoothies before and this is delicious. I like how it has mint in it. I omitted the dark choc chips but added chia seeds instead. Thank you!

Supposedly, you can eat the seed of the avocado! If you boil it beforehand and blend it into a flour, it’s great for baking and integrating in salads, stir-fries, dips, sauces, and so much more. Plus, it contains a lot of micronutrients and healthy fats! Who knew, right?! Anyways, I have made and tasted avocado pudding before and it was actually pretty nice! I might have tried an avocado smoothie once or twice, but it was supposed to taste a LOT like a sweet avocado!

This recipe is a great healthier treat option. My kids are pretty good about fruits and veggies, but neither would try avocado. This was an awesome way to sneak one in on them. I made this using chocolate mint and my son loved it. Bachmann’s has an awesome assortment of different mints if you haven’t got your yet.
