Recently I’ve started drinking avocado strawberry smoothies for breakfast. They are so delicious and now I can’t imagine my mornings without a smoothie. I especially love the smoothies with avocado. The avocado adds a great creamy texture, almost milkshake like consistency. If you add strawberries and frozen banana you will get cool and refreshing smoothie that tastes like a dessert more than anything else and offers plenty of vitamins and nutrients. The natural healthy fats from avocado transform this smoothie into a luscious velvety shake.
Bananas and strawberries are exceptionally healthy foods that provide numerous health benefits. Bananas are high in potassium and low in salt and able to lower blood pressure, protect against heart attack and stroke and act as a prebiotic. Strawberries are extremely high in vitamin C, which helps boost your immunity and protects you from infections. They are also high in potassium which prevent the breakdown of bone that comes with age. Because all of that, this avocado strawberry smoothie recipe is an awesome way to start off a day in a healthy way.
- ½ 12 oz avocado
- 4 oz fresh strawberries
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 small frozen or fresh banana
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- Cut the avocado in half and remove the seed. Use a spoon to scoop out the avocado flesh. Combine the avocado, strawberries, honey, water, lemon juice and banana in a blender and puree until smooth. Serve immediately.
