I have avocado and egg on toast pretty much every morning - it's a fruit (yes I checked) I love. It's very versatile and recently I have been putting avocado into my smoothies and experimenting with different combinations (as a juice bar owner this is something I do a lot).

Not only is avocado very healthy it is also a good alternative to banana (to help thicken) and it doesn't really taste of anything - hence wont mess with the flavour of your smoothie.

In this vain I would like to share with you 6 avocado smoothie recipes that I think work well and are perfect for breakfast, dinner or tea.

Hope you enjoy!

A few health benefits of avocado:

  • They are high in healthy fats (monounsaturated - important for heart health)

  • They contain more potassium than banana (potassium helps to regulate your heartbeat)

  • They are loaded with powerful antioxidants that are important for eye health

What you will need before you start……

  1. A blender (I use a nutri-ninja).

  2. A Base (liquid for your smoothie). I use coconut water, as it helps to lift the taste without adding sugar. However you can use spring water or almond milk.

Directions:

  • Blend all of these recipes for around 1 minute

  • Add more liquids for your preferred consistency.

Servings/yield :

  • You should get a 16-20 oz servings from all these smoothie recipes (enough for 1 persons or 2 little ones).

  • Just double up on ingredients if you want to make in batches.
