My favorite Avocado Smoothie Recipe

I love avocados, but they’re not really something that you can just throw in a blender and blend away. Avocados are very ripe, so you have to let them sit for a bit before blending them. The key to making this recipe work is not letting your avocado get too ripe or it will turn into a liquid! Once you’ve got all your ingredients together, simply mix everything together in one container and drink up!

Ingredients:

  • Avocado
  • Pear
  • Spinach
  • Lime juice (optional)

1 ripe avocado

You can tell when an avocado is ripe by the color of its skin. If it’s light green, the avocado is past its prime and will likely be more bitter than flavorful in your smoothie (though you can still eat it if that’s what you want).

If you’re not sure whether an avocado is ripe, look at its stem end—if there are no green spots or brown spots on it, then congratulations! Your avocado is ready to go into your blender and make yourself some deliciousness!

To store avocados properly:

  • Peel off any remaining stickers or wax paper from around the outside of each piece; pat dry with paper towel before placing in container. Do not wash until ready to use because once washed they begin losing nutrients which makes them more susceptible to spoilage due to exposure

1/2 fresh cored pear

Pears are a good source of fiber, vitamin C and pectin. Pectin is a type of soluble fiber that helps lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels by binding to bile acids in the digestive tract. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help prevent heart disease by preventing inflammation in the body.

Pears contain antioxidants, which may protect against cancerous cell growth by neutralizing free radicals from being created naturally within your cells (this process is known as oxidative stress).

1/4 cup spinach

Spinach is a member of the Chenopodiaceae family, and it is rich in vitamins A and C. Spinach also contains iron, folate, magnesium and potassium. The iron content in spinach can help lower blood pressure levels by improving oxygen delivery to the body’s cells.

Juice from half a lime

  • Lime juice is a great way to add a bit of tangy flavor to your smoothie. It’s also very good for you, because it has vitamin C and helps with skin health.
  • If you’re using fresh lime juice, measure out half an inch or so and mix it in.

1/4 cup water or coconut water (depending how thick you like it)

You can use water or coconut water, depending on how thick you want your smoothie to be. I like a thicker smoothie, so I use water. If you prefer a thinner consistency, use coconut water instead.

3 ice cubes

I love ice cubes in my smoothies, but you’re probably wondering why. It’s all about texture and flavor—ice cubes add both! I want to make sure that my smoothie has a good balance of taste so I don’t just end up drinking water.

Using the right amount of ice is also important because if you use too much crushed ice it will make your smoothie watery, which isn’t very appealing at all! So instead of using crushed ice or even chunks of fruit (which can also make things too sweet), try using small amounts of diced fruit or other ingredients like nuts or coconut flakes instead.

This is a delicious and healthy smoothie packed with vitamins.

This is a delicious and healthy smoothie packed with vitamins. You can add or remove ingredients to suit your taste and you can use other fruit instead of pear, coconut water or other liquid instead of water.
