This recipe calls for just a few simple ingredients that come together to make the most perfect luscious and creamy smoothie.
- Avocado: The start ingredient to make this recipe creamy! If you don’t want to use avocado, you can sub for your favorite nut butter or my homemade pumpkin seed butter.
- Blueberries: I love using wild blueberries for their deep color, but any blueberries work.
- Banana: Adds more creaminess and sweetness.
- Non-Dairy Milk: This will be the liquid base which will help everything blend. You can sub for water, coconut water or my banana milk too!
- Hemp Seeds and/or Protein Powder: I like using hemp hearts for some protein.
Can you freeze avocado?
Yes! However, you just want to make sure the avocados are nice and ripe before freezing them. You can remove the pit and peel, slice them up into chunks and store them in a tupperware container or reusable zip lock bag.
Then just add a few to the blender and you’ll end up with the world’s creamiest smoothie. If you do use frozen avocado instead of fresh for this recipe, just add a bit more milk to help it blend.
How to make this recipe
To make this smoothie, you will want to peel the banana, peel and remove the pit of the avocado, then add all remaining ingredients to the blender. Process until completely smooth, pour into glasses and enjoy!
If you’re using all frozen ingredients, you’ll need to add a touch more liquid to help it blend. I like smoothies pretty thick, so feel free to thin it out a bit. If you want to make it sweeter, you can add 1 date or a touch of honey.
Blueberries mix well with a lot of other fruits, such as all other berries, mango and honey, so feel free to add some of your favorites to the mix!
Can I make it a smoothie bowl? Yes! This smoothie can be as thick or as thin as you want. Decrease the liquid to make it thick like a smoothie bowl, or thin it out with more almond milk.
Can I add protein powder? Definitely. To up the protein content of this smoothie, feel free to add a scoop of your favorite protein powder or collagen peptides.
What kind of non-dairy milk is best? This recipe calls for almond milk, but you can use any kind of non-dairy milk or even water or coconut water.
Can I use frozen avocado? Yes. However, you may need to add extra almond milk to help it blend. Before freezing the avocado, make sure it is nice and ripe so it has a better flavor and texture. You’ll want to remove the skin and the pit and just freeze the flesh to make it easier to use in smoothies.
Can I make this smoothie in advance? I don’t recommend making this avocado smoothie the night before because it tends to separate as it sits. However, you can prep all the ingredients and add them to a zip lock bag the night before, then throw them all into a blender with milk or water in the morning and you’re good to go!
Can I make this blueberry smoothie with no banana? If you don’t like banana, you can sub it for mango to add sweetness.
