For some reason it took me a while to try an avocado in my smoothie, but now it’s one of my favorite ingredients. Avocados give your smoothie a rich and creamy consistency while providing an array of health benefits.

Here are a few avocado health highlights.

  • Rich in antioxidants including Lutein, an eye friendly antioxidant
  • Studies have shown the monounsaturated fats in avocados help reduce cholesterol
  • Provides a good amount of soluble and insoluble fiber
  • Contains healthy fats and is an underrated source of protein

Now for the creamy avocado smoothie recipe, which I find keeps me satiated for hours. Enjoy!

Creamy Avocado Smoothie Recipe

The Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 avocado, peeled and seed removed
  • 1 tablespoon coconut shreds, flakes, or raw meat
  • 1 serving of your favorite chocolate protein powder (I prefer Sun Warrior)
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey

The Add-ons

  • Fresh mint leaves or mint oil
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries of choice
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder and/or nibs
  • 1 serving of your preferred green superfood powder

Show Time

Place all the ingredients into your high-speed blender and blend for around 30-45 seconds or until nice and smooth.

    Thanks for a great smoothie website. I love trying your new recipes every week! I was used to making mostly kale, spinach and apple smoothies… Now I have a whole new array of combinations and the work has been taken out of it for me. My favorites are the avocado and the chocolate smoothies. I have one for lunch almost everyday and make them for my grandson too! :)

    I can’t believe you went through all of these recipes for us. Thank you so much for your hard work and it’s truly appreciated by me and surely others. I bought a vitamix recently and now I shall try your many smoothy recipes that you have so graciously made available to all of us. Many thanks :)

    I would really like to know how healthy (or not!) a smoothie I have put together this morning without a recipe please.

    1 avocado
    1 ripe mango
    1 ripe banana
    half stick celery
    about 3 inch of peeled cucumber
    spinach
    flaked coconut
    coconut water
    bit of almond milk

    It is the first one I have done without a recipe that I have thoroughly enjoyed and would appreciate your views. Sorry I couldn’t find where to post this as a separate request to this post!!
    thanks
    Karen

      Hi Karen,

      Your ad hoc smoothie recipe is definitely healthy! It must have been creamy and delicious with a whole avocado. My only minor critique is that it might be a little high in sugar; so you could use only 1/2 banana and/or 1/2 mango next time.

      Regards,
      Ryan

    hi,I am going to make your creamy avocado smoothie again as soon as I buy some more ingredients to make this smoothie in my blender.would it be ok to put a whole avocado in this smoothie instead of half an avocado?
    kim

    • Ryan Carmody #

      Yes, a whole avocado would make this smoothie that much more nutritious and creamy!

    hi,i am going to make your creamy avocado smoothie in my blender,but I don’t have any coconut shreds,no mint leaves,but I have everything else to put in your smoothie.
    can I put coconut extract and peppermint in your smoothie with the rest of the ingredients?
    can I put a while cut up avocado and chia seed powder in your smoothie?
    kim

    • Ryan Carmody #

      Hi Kim,

      Yes, you can substitute with coconut extract and peppermint and use a whole avocado and include chia seed powder! Let me know how it turns out.
