Avocado Smoothie

Sharing is caring!

This avocado smoothie is doubled up on creaminess with its combination of avocado and banana. That’s probably its most notable feature that sets it apart from other smoothies. It also has an interesting flavor combination which I find quite enjoyable.

  • plain almond milk
  • lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • liquid honey

You can make this smoothie vegan by omitting the honey or replacing it with agave nectar or another sweetener.

Tips

As we all know, avocado is prone to browning and it does so fairly quickly. One way to combat that in a smoothie is to add an acid like I did in this recipe. It’s not likely it will take you more than a few hours to drink this smoothie, but just in case, it’s armed with lime juice and pineapple.

Here is how to tell if your avocados are perfectly ripe and ready to use:

  • You should go by both color and feel.
  • The color will have changed from a bright green to a much deeper green.
  • The texture will be slightly soft when you add gentle pressure.
  • If it’s mushy when you apply pressure, it’s too ripe.
  • At this point, it’s ready to blend. If you still need a day until you plan on making the smoothie, transfer the ripe avocados to the fridge.
