About these ads

I love smoothies for breakfast, lunch (sometimes), and even dinner – especially after Bikram Yoga.

There’s a problem though. I usually don’t find that they “last” very long.

Until now. I have been drinking this new smoothie for weeks, more often maybe than I should. But when things are busy, smoothies are magic. I blend this up and I can even drink it on my way to work. Actually, my work has a blender so sometimes I just pack it all in a plastic container and dump it into the blender for a midday boost. I never get to stop for lunch, so this smoothie has been a lifesaver.

 

Want to know what the secret ingredient is?

Avocado.

I have tried it with soaked nuts, nut butters, super food filler, chia seeds, ground flax seed and, to be fair, they are all delicious. It’s just that I get hungry so fast. I’ve tried making this same smoothie without the avocado and substituting, ground flax or ground chia seeds, but it’s really not as good. It’s OK, but the smoothie is definitely better with than without.
