Avocado Peanut Butter Smoothie

There’s very few ingredients I think you can mix together in a smoothie, and NOT have it taste delicious  Fruit, Bananas, some leafy greens and coconut/almond milk is a very basic recipe for yumminess.

But I’ve got to say, this avocado smoothie is beyond amazing and it completely embodies what a smoothie should be. It’s creamy and silky; light and sweet. Avocados can be super rich and thick, but the almond milk and peanut butter give it a thinner consistency, with a nice sweet kick. I’ve been trying to concoct a new smoothie every day this month for a tag I saw on Instagram for a 30 day smoothie challenge. I usually have a smoothie for breakfast every day, but this is a nice incentive to not stray from such a healthy morning option.

What’s you favorite smoothie combo?

Meat of 2 avocados

1 1/2 cups almond milk

1 1/2 cup frozen banana

1 cup spinach

1 cup kale

1/3 cup peanut butter or any nut butter

1 tbsp golden flaxseed

  • Mix all ingredients together in a high speed blender until creamy

  1. Any suggestions on what I could substitute for the banana? My son has dairy/egg allergies & needs to gain some weight, so I’m looking to include more healthy fats into his diet. He loves peanut butter, but turns his nose up at avocados, and they are jam-packed with healthy fats so I was hoping to disguise them somehow. Trouble is, banana (even a small amount) gives him very bad gas pains. Does it act mainly as a sweetner? Perhaps I could try adding some non-dairy vanilla ice cream in its place?

  2. Thanks for your comment Heather. We have one of these smoothies every day and love them 🙂 I actually made one yesterday and forgot to add the banana! It really does taste a bit different without it, but yes, it is mainly for sweetening. I think some vegan vanilla ice cream would be perfect! Even non-dairy vanilla yogurt would probably be fine. This smoothie is pretty thick and creamy so I think either one would be good 🙂

  3. Heather, I just tried making this and I didn’t have a banana around, so I substituted 1/3 cup red grapes. It turned out great!

  4. That sounds awesome Taylor! I have a bunch of frozen red grapes so I am going to try this tomorrow!

  5. How many calories do you think that is? I have a Mom with pre-diabetes, 95 yr, and trying to help her gain weight. We can’t do fruit smoothies anymore.
