The Most Refreshing Avocado Smoothie

I am a creature of habit.

So when I change up those habits, it’s a big deal!

For the longest time, those that follow along know I have had a slice of toasted Ezekiel bread with greek yogurt and strawberries on top for breakfast.

But then one day I created this gem, and since I have had this smoothie nearly everyday! It’s beyond refreshing, smooth, and creamy. Additionally, it fills me up for those first couple hours starting off long nursing shifts, and the healthy fats give me all the brain power (I also love pairing this with my oatmeal protein PB breakfast cookies, which I will share soon!).

My sister was super skeptical if she would like this when she visited, but she absolutely loved it. After a day or two she was also craving them! I promised her and a couple others I would share the recipe soon. And per everything I share- it’s so easy!

Grocery List:

  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 1/2 of 5.3 oz Toasted Coconut Vanilla yogurt (Dannon) container or 3 TBSP of plain greek yogurt
  • 2 oz. coconut water
  • 2 oz. milk of choice (I use cashew or an almond/coconut blend)
  • 1 packet Stevia
  • 4-5 ice cubes

Directions:

  1. Put it all in a blender (or Ninja), and blend that sun of a gun.
  2. Enjoy!

      2. They are incredible Mackensie. I thought of you as first person to share this with! I had major heart eyes too, and Kristin models the dresses so well. You do need a little shopping spree!!! I hope to help you justify a spree. DJ , your beautiful wife is such a sweet soul who inspires her blog followers , and works so hard in a tough environment , not everyone can work in a hospital. She deserves a little time to do what a girl loves to do , shop! Guys love to fish, have a nice car and go to sports, Girls love to do other activities! I think she deserves to look good in one or two of these pretty dresses! Hope this helps Mackensie, Huggs, Terri.
