This is the creamiest smoothie I've ever had. In the past, to get a smoothie really really creamy I had to add banana. I like to make "no fruit" smoothies because smoothies that are loaded with fruit aren't quite as healthy as ones that aren't. Today I added avocado....and it blows away the banana for the creamy texture! What's more? ...avocados have even more potassium than bananas and are FULL of those healthy fats that are so good for us!
I'm calling this the "Skin Smoothie" because it's loaded with nutrients, collagen, antioxidants and healthy fatty acids. Ready to get your glow on?
- 1 c. unsweetened almond milk (look for carrageenan free --> I like New Barn or Califia Farms brands
- 1 scoop Vanilla Plant Based Protein Powder
- 1 scoop Greens Blend
- 1 scoop Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
- 1/4 very ripe avocado
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (great source of antioxidants...anti-inflammatory properties...and more! One of the healthiest spices!!)
- 2 ice cubes
Blend until smooth and incredibly creamy! I love making "no fruit" smoothies that are ultra healthy....and taste amazing, this one is definitely both.
The nutrients and healthy fats in this smoothie will keep you satisfied for a looooong time. This would be a great breakfast because it's full of protein too.
