This strawberry avocado smoothie is a quick treat you can make for breakfast or as a snack. You can’t taste the avocado but it adds all kinds of richness and creaminess plus other good things we all need. This smoothie is a fresh and fruity way to start the day.
Cool, creamy and fruity – this strawberry avocado smoothie is one way to cure those mid-winter blues. I’ve been making it in the morning as a bright start to the day or as an afternoon snack if I start feeling a little slumpy because slumpy is so not a good look.
It’s pretty in pink, it’s a banana-free smoothie but isn’t lacking in creaminess, it’s a quick 5-minute prep and blend situation, and it’s got a strawberries and cream theme going on with a surprise pop of lime that wakes up all the flavors.
- It starts with frozen strawberries, but you can really use any kind of frozen berry you like if you want to switch up the flavor. Blueberries, raspberries, a combo of berries will all work well.
- There’s some avocado in there, too, which adds lots of richness and creaminess but you can’t taste it. I added it to up the happy quotient because avocados are full of good-for-you things.
- Some honey adds sweetness and a splash of fresh lime juice adds some zing.
- I use 2% milk but any kind of milk you love will work!
Two quick tips for the best smoothie experience:
- If you can find sliced frozen strawberries buy them. If not, you can use whole ones but even my high-powered blender has trouble breaking them down all the way sometimes. My advice: if you use whole ones place them in the blender with the other ingredients and let them thaw out for five minutes or so.
- I am particular about smooth thickness. I prefer a thinner smoothie, but if you like yours thicker cut back on the milk. Start with less and add more until yours is just right.
If you’ve got a case of the slumps, make it! If you feel amazing and not slumpy at all you should still make it. It will just add to the amazingness.
Happy blending 🍓
