Avocados offer many health benefits. They are high in monounsaturated fats that are good for your heart. Avocados also contain more potassium than bananas, which helps regulate your heartbeat. They are loaded with powerful antioxidants important for eye health.


These smoothie recipes are perfect for breakfast, post-workout nutrition, or an afternoon snack. Avocado adds richness and creaminess without any dairy, sugar, or artificial ingredients. Let's get blending!


Tools You'll Need


To make these recipes, you'll need:


  • A high-speed blender like a Vitamix or Nutribullet. This allows you to blend avocado smoothly with the other ingredients. A regular blender may work but may not blend the avocado as smoothly.

  • Base ingredients like coconut water, almond milk, or spring water. I use coconut water to add light sweetness without sugar. But you can sub in any liquid base.

  • Avocados - 1/2 an average-sized avocado per smoothie. Ripen them at room temperature until just soft but not mushy.

  • Assorted fruits, veggies, nuts, and spices based on each recipe. Choose ripe, fresh options for maximum flavor and nutrition.


  • Use natural sweeteners such as raw honey or agave syrup for a sweeter taste.
