One of the many complaints we receive is that people do not have enough time to eat breakfast in the mornings. This Avocado and Berry Breakfast Smoothie is the exact solution for those extra busy mornings.
I am sure that many of you have heard the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. While every meal that we eat is important, consuming breakfast helps to get our day off to the right start. When we go all night without eating, we need something to energize our bodies to begin our day.
Avocados have tons of healthy fats and potassium. They bring so much flavor to anything you add them to. The berries in the smoothie have a ton of fiber that also help to keep us full and keep our digestive tracts running smoothly.
The best part about this recipe is that it only takes about five minutes to make! All you need is a cup of almond milk, some plain greek yogurt, ½ of an avocado, ½ of a banana, ¼ cup of blueberries and strawberries, nutmeg, and some ice. Toss all of the ingredients into a blender and blend up until it is a nice, smooth consistency.
You can put all of the ingredients except for the almond milk and yogurt in a small baggie and keep in the freezer so it is all ready to go when you wake up in the morning. Then all you need to do is to throw the fruit, yogurt, and almond milk in the blender and you can even drink it on the way out the door. What do you like to put in your smoothies?

- 1 cup of almond milk

Why do you use Almond milk instead of regular milk? Also, why Greek yogurt? What is the difference there?
Hi! Great question. Plain Greek yogurt usually has more protein/less sugar than plain regular yogurt, which I prefer. For the milk, I just prefer the flavor of almond milk. Hope this helps!
Just tried this smoothie recipe today. I usually add more fruit and less liquid than what is in this recipe to my smoothies, so I was expecting it to turn out super watery and not very sweet. However, it turned out to be delicious, with just the right amount of sweetness and a great consistency! This is my very first recipe of y’alls to try. My cookbook is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, and I’m super excited to receive it and try many more!
That’s so good to hear!! We hope you LOVE the recipes in the book! When you get to it, pretty please leave us a review for the book too! xoxo
I love smoothies but not a fan of Bananas at all. Anything else I can use.. Plantain? I need the potassium that i know bananas provide
Hi! You can sub whatever fruits you enjoy. For extra potassium, go for spinach, plain yogurt, avocado, and/or cantaloupe in your smoothies. I actually enjoy adding pureed butternut squash to smoothies- it’s a great sub for bananas! xo
I am constantly looking online for tips that can benefit me. Thank you!
