Pouring green smoothie from the blender into a glass

Truth time: I’ve never been much of a smoothie person.

I would just rather chew my food than drink it. I think the act of chewing helps signal that I’ve eaten a meal and I don’t get that from drinking a smoothie.

My family, on the other hand, absolutely loves smoothies. 

We have a fancy high-powered blender because my daughter makes smoothies allllll the time. Meanwhile, I’m over here eating bacon and eggs. 😉

Enter this avocado smoothie. I’ll eat anything if you throw an avocado at it and this is no exception!

The healthy fats from the avocado make this so filling!

ingredients for avocado smoothie in a blender

This avocado smoothie recipe starts out with just a handful of ingredients: spinach, strawberries, avocado, hemp seeds, your choice of milk (we use almond), and a touch of sweetener. 

Any blender should be able to handle this smoothie, but we have a Blendtec and love it. This NutriBullet has almost 15k reviews and looks like a winner at a much lower price point. 

You really just toss everything into your blender and let it work it’s magic.

Ingredient swaps: 

Hemp seeds are optional here, but we love the nutrients they add. You could use flax seed instead, if you prefer. Both of these are used in my keto oatmeal so be sure to grab some!

Strawberries could be replaced with blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries, but the nutrition info and flavor will change a bit. They’re all delicious options though!

Frozen avocado can be purchased in most well-stocked grocers. It comes in small chunks and is perfect for smoothies. You could chop and freeze your own avocado as well.

The sweetener I use is Lakanto Liquid Monkfruit Sweetener. I love that you only need a drop or two and there is no funky aftertaste. Use my coupon code THATLOWCARBLIFE for 20% off your entire order at Lakanto. (We also use their golden sweetener, powdered sweetener, and chocolate chips regularly in my house!) 

The sweetener isn’t strictly necessary, but we prefer a bit more sweetness to our smoothies so it’s a must for us. You could also use liquid stevia if that’s what you have on hand.

Yield 2 servings
Prep Time 5 minutes
Additional Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups baby spinach

    Just tried this today and it was fine. I didn’t have any sweetener as I don’t really like the low carb sweeteners, so I have steadily been desweetening my tastebuds to the point that porridge made with water is acceptable to my tastebuds (it wasn’t initially). I did everything as per except the sweetener and used chia seeds instead as that’s all my local Aldi had. Nice quick easy recipe for a breakfast that can be made in advance and is simple to consume. Thumbs up from me.

  2. I love smoothies! And I will definitely try this recipe. I like that it’s simple and yet so healthy and it has an avocado in it. A couple of things I’d like to add: Yes, chewing is important because it does signal that you’re eating and helps to slow down the eating process. It’s too tempting to guzzle it down in just minutes. Eating while stressing to get somewhere on time is not good. Second, I’d like to suggest chia seeds as an awesome addition to smoothies. But, stir it in after you pour it into the glass. I’ve had a really hard time with chia gumming up my blender. I have never used the chia powder so I don’t know how that will behave in a blender.

  3. I noticed it said drink immediately, I am not going to drink both serving at 1 time. Does it refrigerate?

      Hi Lisa! It’ll separate a bit as it sets. You could try stirring it back together or just halve the recipe.

  4. Christina Horne

    Hello! I have made cookies with the ethrynol and it leaves the cooling sensation. I don’t like that Will using the monkfruit sweetener do the same?

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Christina! Lakanto Monkfruit is mostly erythritol with a bit of monkfruit extract added. I find less of a cooling sensation with this blend than with straight erythrtiol, but you might still get some of that sensation.

  5. Chia doesn’t have any flavor, it helps thicken the shakes, and it’s good for your health.

  6. Hi Karly, will chia seed powder be ok as a substitute for the hemp seeds, and if so, at what measurement?

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi AJ! I’ve never tested this with chia seeds, so I really can’t say. If you give it a try, let us know how it turns out. 🙂
