A smoothie is a nutritional powerhouse, especially when it has the right blend of nutrients in it. Avocado smoothies are the perfect go-to breakfast or a healthy afternoon/evening snack when you’re on a weight-loss diet. Rich in antioxidants, fiber, minerals, vitamins, and monosaturated fats, avocado smoothies are an effortless way to add valuable nutrition to your diet, particularly when you’re short on time. If you’ve never tried making a healthy avocado smoothie at home, we have the perfect recipe for you!

How to make an Avocado Smoothie?

Not all great recipes have to be complicated. The avocado smoothie recipe is easy to make, involving just 5 ingredients, (sometimes even less) and takes just 5 minutes to prepare. Avocados lend the smoothie a creamy texture, which when combined with other fruits like bananas, berries, mangoes, and vegetables like cucumbers, kale or cilantro, will make your breakfast wholesome yet delicious. However, you can also choose to have it simply as it is, in other words, sans fruits/vegetables, and no, it doesn’t have to be boring. Let’s take a look at how to make this appetizing and healthy avocado smoothie.

  • Blend the ingredients together until it becomes thick and creamy. If the consistency is too creamy for your liking, simply add more dairy-free milk to thin it. If you are using yogurt instead, add more of it and a bit of water to thin it. You can add more vanilla protein/ protein to it, to add to the sweetness. If the protein powder you're using is unsweetened, add a tsp of honey to it.  
  • Once done, divide the smoothie among different serving glasses and enjoy the drink. Ideally, it's best when you have it fresh, but if you choose to have it later, you can refrigerate it.

Notes

Note that if you want a creamier and thicker version of an avocado smoothie, you'll need more avocados. The more the avocados, the thicker and creamier the smoothie!
Avocado blends well with any fruit and vegetable, so you can always add frozen bananas, berries, kale, spinach, mangoes, etc to the recipe above to enhance the flavor.

Does Avocado Smoothie Really Help in Weight Loss?

Smoothies, in this case, avocado smoothies, are healthy provided you don’t add sugar or any other high-calorie ingredient into it. If you are going to be generous with your add-ins, then you’ll just end up with a high-calorie, sugar-laden dessert, which will make you gain weight instead. If you were to substitute dairy-free milk/low-fat Greek yogurt, with high-fat cow milk, and ice cream or honey with sugar, in the aforementioned recipe, then the resultant avocado smoothie would be nothing short of fattening.
