  • 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.

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.
