Good Eats – Power Boosting Smoothie

For all of the avocado lovers out there, this might be the recipe for you. Avocados have a very unique nutrition profile as we all know. It is high in mono-saturated fats, contains a lot of fiber and it is rich in vitamins such as vitamin B, C, E and K. It also contains a lot of minerals such as potassium and folate. Some studies showed that consumptions of avocados has been associated with decreased risk of cardiovascular disease.

We all know that avocado has a smooth and creamy texture, so why not add it into a smoothie. This recipe is another one of those that you can gather all your ingredients, and add it into a blender. As some of you know may know we love things that are quick and easy, what’s better than making a filling smoothie that you can take it to go when you are in a hurry.

This recipe doesn’t make three servings. It’s for one, while you are making it, because of the milk the mixture gets very frothy, so make sure you let it sit for a while before putting in a container.

I added half of the blended mixture into a glass container and top it up with more milk. I like my smoothie not too sweet, that’s why I did half and half. It’s up to you how sweet you like your smoothie to be. Definitely give this recipe a try.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries (or any berries you prefer)
  • 10 walnuts
  • 1.5 scoop of chocolate whey protein powder
  • 1 cup of almond milk

Instruction:

  1. Add all the ingredients listed above to a blender and blender the mixture until it has a smooth texture.

This smoothie is very filling because of the avocado and whey protein that were used. It is also incredibly nutritious and tastes fantastic. If you are adventurous enough to give it a try, let me know what you think about this smoothie.

Until next time.
