Avocado Smoothie – Budget Bytes

Did you know you can freeze avocados? This information was life-changing when I opened my former restaurant, AVO, in Nashville back in 2015; we used frozen avocado in our signature drink, the Avocado Margarita and let me tell you, freezing ripe avocados saved us a bunch of dough! Now, I buy ripe avocados any time they’re on sale, slice them up, and toss them in the freezer for later. This avocado smoothie is the perfect way to use up frozen avocado. I know avocado in a drink might sound crazy, but trust me, it’s the secret to an ultra-rich, dessert-like smoothie. It’s packed with healthy fats and imparts that same creamy texture that avocados (and guacamole) are known for! This is your new favorite green smoothie.

What Is An Avocado Smoothie?

Citrus and avocado are a classic combination. In this smoothie, I add a creamy, ripe banana and a little extra sweetness from agave nectar, making it an instant winner! Super creamy, bright, and fun, this avocado smoothie is the perfect treat with lots of healthy ingredients involved.

Here’s what you’ll need to make an avocado smoothie:

  • Frozen Avocado: Makes this smoothie lusciously creamy and adds heart-healthy fats, fiber, and omega-3s.
  • Agave: This syrup adds a touch of sweetness to this smoothie to balance out the acidic flavors. Agave is a neutral flavored sweetener unlike maple and honey (which are delicious!) but can sometimes take over flavor-wise.
  • Frozen Banana: Adds flavor, subtle sweetness and creaminess.
  • OJ: Balances the fattiness of the avocado, adding a bright flavor.
  • Lime Juice: Adds a touch of extra acidity to balance out the sweet and creamy flavors.

What Else Can I Add?

This smoothie is a great base to add extra greens or fruit to!

  • I love to add spinach or kale.
  • Frozen blueberries or pineapple make great fruity additions!
  • For a protein boost, add a scoop of peanut butter or vanilla protein powder!
