Blueberry and Avocado Green Smoothie

Blueberry-Avocado Green Smoothie RecipeThis smoothie has a creamy texture and mild berry flavor.

I drank this smoothie just before I did a 3-mile run and it kept me going strong. It’s great for a pre-run smoothie or morning pick-me-up!

I added raw maca powder to give this smoothie an extra boost of energy! Maca has a distinctive flavor so if it’s your first time using it, start with 1/2 tablespoon and gradually increase to the recommended serving size on the label as you become accustomed to the taste.

Berry-Avocado Smoothie Recipe

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 1/2 tablespoon maca powder (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds, soaked for 5 minutes
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils (or pitted cherries)
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 8 ounces (236 ml) filtered water

Start by adding the liquid to your blender (I use a Vitamix), followed by the soft fruit. Add the greens to your blender last. Blend on high for 30 seconds or until the smoothie is creamy.

Serving Size: One. (This recipe makes a large, 32-ounce smoothie. It is a meal-replacement smoothie and not a snack. I recommend drinking half right away and the other half about 30 minutes later. If it is too much for you, store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.)
