Avocado Banana Smoothie Recipe

I have to admit when I first heard of a smoothie with avocado in it I really wasn’t sure. Avocados in my salad or on my sandwich are great, but in a drink?  Well, I decided to go ahead and give it a try anyway and I am so glad I did.  This smoothie was a hit for just about everyone in my family.  Even my three and four year old liked it.  The real selling point for me is the nutrition that this smoothie offers.

I’ll be upfront though and say that this is more a meal replacement than it would be a snack.  It packs a whopping 572 calories and 17.5 grams of fat, but don’t let that scare you off. These really are calories well spent.  This smoothie has over 1200 mg of potassium, 10 grams of dietary fiber, 16 grams of protein and more than half the RDA for Calcium.  Another plus would be for women who are pregnant or trying to get pregnant, because the 25.9% of the RDA for folate is vital for early fetal development.  It also provides high amounts of vitamins B-6, C, D and E.

Another great tidbit about this smoothie that I didn’t know until I research it, is that avocados have anti-inflammatory properties and even though they are high in fat, the natural raw fat they offer actually help your body absorb fat-soluble nutrients more effectively.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Medium Avocado, peeled
  • ½ Cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 medium Banana
  • 1 Cup unsweetened Original Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbs Honey
  • 6 Ice Cubes

Add all ingredients to Blender and blend to desired consistency.  Make sure when you peel the avocado that you are careful to just take the skin/shell off, the dark green that is just under the shell contains the most nutrition.

So what’s not to love??  This smoothie is creamy and tastes great.  This would be a great breakfast supplement for people on the go or people who just want to be a bit healthier!

    This was lovely!! It didn’t taste much of avocado, unfortunately but it was really great. Almond milk isn’t available where I live though so I used almond flavoured soy milk instead which was still great!

    Ein toller Fellsattel zeichnet sich vorrangig dadurch aus, dass der Fellsattel genauso toll für das Pferd und für den Reitenden sein kann. Dies muss stets der wichtigste Punkt beim Kauf eines Fellsattels sein. Nun kann man ins Detail gehen und detaillierte Attribute der jeweiligen Variationen bedenken. Selbstverständlich spielt auch an dieser Stelle das Alter die nicht unwichtige Rolle. Für die Kleinen eignen sich vor allem anti-rutsch Fellsattel. Bei Großen kann jener Punkt nahezu missachtet werden. Gleich ausschlaggebend ist natürlich der Komfort des Sattels. Jetzt bietet sich ganz stark Lammfell an. Der Stoff bzw. dieses Fell ist besonders soft und ebenfalls schonend fürs Pferd. Ein Fellsattel aus Lammfell ist möglicherweise die beste Option die ein Pferdeliebhaber treffen dürfte. Zwar liegt dieser Sattel auch kostentechnisch enorm höher als Alternativen.
