An Avocado Smoothie is a great way to start the day off right. It’s super creamy and has just the right amount of sweetness from local honey.
I love making smoothies for breakfast. It’s such a healthy way to start off my morning. Avocados are a great source of omega-3, dietary fiber, vitamins B6, C, E and K and potassium. They are also a great source of folate, which is important for pregnant and nursing mamas. I don’t know if I have ever made a creamier smoothie and this one. The avocado, banana, and yogurt blend together to make a truly dreamy smoothie. Did you know that using local honey can actually help fight seasonal allergies? This is a great way to support your body AND small local farms.
A few simple and healthy ingredients are all you need to make this delicious Avocado Smoothie:
- 1 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1 large ripe banana
- 1/2 cup milk (or almond milk)
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 tablespoon honey (local is best!)
Combine the yogurt, banana and milk or almond milk in a blender and process until smooth. (Note, the more ripe your banana, the sweeter your smoothie will be.)
Pour the mixture into a glass and enjoy!
If you’ve got a hectic morning like I often do, make up a bigger batch of this Avocado Smoothie mixture. Portion it out into freezer-safe mason jars, leaving 1-inch head space. Secure the lids tightly and freeze. At night, take one smoothie out of the freezer and put it in the refrigerator. In the morning, you can just grab and go! It’s a great time saver for those busy mornings.
