Creamy Green Smoothie, Boost Morning Detox Work!

Green smoothies are filled with green leafy veggies. But they are so tasty, you won’t even know you are eating them. The addition of a half of an avocado to this green smoothie adds a creamy twist to the classic green smoothie.  This is the smoothie I recommend to all my friends who are skeptical about drinking anything GREEN.


8 oz. filtered water
handful of baby spinach
½ of a ripe avocado (if you are looking for something super
creamy and comforting – especially during colder months – add the whole avocado)
½ of a banana
1/2 of a lime
handful of ice


Combine the ingredients listed above into a blender. Any blender will do, though a high power blender makes the smoothies even creamier and more delicious. Add water and ice to thin or thicken as desired. Make sure the ice is fully blended. Top with squeeze of lime if desired.

lauren - 1/4 c almond butter, 1/4-1/2 c agave, 1/8 c cocoa, pinch of salt, medium avocado, 1T coconut oil or coconut butter, 1 tsp vanilla. Process all in food processor for 2-3 minutes. Super easy and super delicious.

this looks soooo good. De Maria, you leave in the pit and spray the avocado with cooking spray. But you still have to wipe it off or cut it off unless you want to eat the cooking spray!

Avocado pudding, I would LOVE that recipe!

JuicyNoelle... how ironic... I just made some avocado pudding. It's soooo good.... and nobody ever detects the avocado in it.

I have good luck just by leaving the seed in the half I'm not using and wrapping it up well before I toss it back into the refrigerator. If you're really open minded, avocado pudding is also quite good :>)

That sounds really good. i will have to try that tomorrow morning. I just have to remember to buy avocado. Do you know how to keep it fresh if you cut the other half for the next day?
