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

Spinach Berry Smoothie

I had to share this spinach smoothie as it surprised me with how good it turned out!
 At work we were discussing “detox” smoothies and adding vegetables into our smoothies both of which I had never tried before. My co-worker told me that by adding spinach to a smoothie not only does it have many nutritional benefits but also no odd taste. I was kind of curious to see if this would hold true (to be honest I did not believe her!). To my surprise, it actually tasted delicious, there was no taste to the spinach (and it blended so nice) – the colour was a bit off but if you can look past that it’s delicious!
– 1 banana
– 6 strawberries
– 1/2 cup of blueberries
– 1 cup of Almond Fresh Vanilla milk
– 1 cup of spinach (washed and stems removed)

1. Combine all ingredients into blender.
2. Blend until desired consistency. 

And voila! Perfect breakfast solution for at work! Don’t mind the messy desk!
