Avocado Green Smoothie

By April 21, 2014Blog, Recipes

Here is a great anytime recipe that incorporates avocado for healthy fats and increasing the absorption of other nutrients. I use this recipe with all of my busy clients that don’t have time to “cook” a meal.

1 scoop high quality protein powder (I use Reservage Organics Grass-fed Whey, or Vega Sport Plant Based)
6oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk
6oz filtered water
1/2 medium avocado
2Tbsp Navitas Naturals Chia Powder
1-2 handfuls organic spinach
1Tbsp fresh crushed almond butter (you can use the brand Justin’s Almond butter if needed)
1/2 medium banana (this is usually for athletes preparing for a hard interval workout but feel free to add)
1/2 fresh lemon or lime squeezed
Optional: 1/2-1tsp Navitas Natural Maca Root Powder (this is a GREAT energy booster and will also increase libido) Go easy at first because it has a strong taste.
Ice Optional

Place all ingredients into blender and blend on high for 45-60 seconds. Pour and enjoy or put in a small cooler for later.
