Avocado Delight Smoothie

I am a huge smoothie fan! I start my day with one and it leaves me feeling refreshed and ready to face my day. I tried a new combination in my smoothie this week and I fell in love with it! It was my first time putting avocados in my drinks and it was fantastic. It did make it creamier then a banana would so I did have to put in a little bit of water to thin it out.

  • one avocado (spoon out the inside)
  • 2 cups of Almond Milk (I love Vanilla or Cocounut Almond Fresh)
  • 1 cup of peaches
  • 1 pear (skin off and cored) 
  • 3 tbsps of hemp hearts (I used Manitoba Harvest shelled hemp hearts)
  • Pour two cups of Almond Milk in blender
  • Add fruit and hemp hearts
  • Cover and blend
  • Check consistency – may need to add water to thin it out a bit and re-blend if necessary

    My whole family loves the taste of avocados and I love how good they are for you! Almond Fresh is my favourite beverage and I always have it on hand so I&#39;ll have to give this a try. Any idea what I could replace hemp hearts with? My stomach doesn&#39;t like them.<br /><br />Besos, Sarah<br />Blogger at Journeys of The Zoo

      Thanks for stopping by Sarah! Almond Fresh is the best isn&#39;t it? It depends on what you are looking for. I use the hemp hearts for the protein but you can substitute with chia seeds (I am not a huge fan of them as they tend to get almost gel like in a smoothie) or you can put flaxseeds in. A friend of mine also loves bee pollen!

    I will have to try this. I just recently discovered that I love avocado. I never liked it before, but I guess my tastes changed because now I can&#39;t get enough.
