Strawberry Avocado Smoothie Recipe

This Avocado Strawberry smoothie is creamy and tastes like a dessert more than anything else, but in reality it’s a powerhouse of vitamins and nutrients.

The avocado in this blend allows the body to more easily absorb all of the vitamins and nutrients from the banana and strawberries. This recipe is high in fiber and heart healthy fat and can act as either a weight loss tool, or a part of a healthy weight gain diet.

Coupled with a meal, this can definitely serve as a healthy way to drink extra calories; eaten by itself (in place of a meal) it can also help with weight loss efforts because the healthy fats will fill you up and hold off your appetite. Either way, this is a creamy, fruity treat that tastes more like guilty treat than a healthy diet choice.

Here's what you need to whip up a single serving:

¼ Cup milk
¾ Cup plain or vanilla yogurt
1 Whole banana
1 ½ Cup frozen strawberries
¼ avocado
¼ tsp Vanilla extract

How to make it
Pour the milk onto the blades of the blender, followed by the yogurt. If you want a thinner consistency, add more milk. Add the peeled banana and avocado, and then blend the mixture. When the mix is completely blended, add the frozen strawberries and blend until smooth.

The fat content in this drink is what keeps your hunger at bay for longer. Many people who are dieting try to reduce their fat intake and end up choosing all kinds of “fat free” or “low fat” products that really do more harm than good.

Your body needs fat for many essential functions, and if you cut out too much fat from your diet, you’re never going to feel full, which means that you end up eating more calories than you would have if you would have just eaten the full fat foods in the first place.

This recipe is an excellent source of heart healthy fats; enjoy.

I make a very similar smoothie, but add a handful of baby spinach for some extra greens and use coconut water instead of milk & yogurt for extra hydration. I also add an egg sometimes for protein. YUM!

I made this this morning and I’m really impressed with it. When I'm at my desk at work, I normally feel tempted to snack but after this smoothie, I feel like I can't actually physically eat anything else! I will definitely try the other smoothies on here :)

Hi all,
Just signed up today and wondering if there is any way to 'favourite' a blog? This one for instance I'd like yo keep referencing. I've also read lots of others that I'd like to find again easily.
I'm mainly using my phone, am I missing something or is this not possible?
Thanks guys. I'm feeling pretty pumped to see my results from this program!

I had this for breakfast today and it was amazing! I poured it in a big mug and ate it with a spoon it was so creamy and thick. I only had a few frozen strawberries so I added some frozen mixed berries. I also used plain greek yogurt instead of regular. I felt like I was eating dessert for breakfast. Thank you!
