Avocado Smoothie

rich & creamy

This smoothie recipe includes a whole avocado. Avocado is a great alternative to dairy, turning your smoothie into a milkshake-like treat.

Ingredients

¾ Cup frozen Strawberries (the smaller the better)
¾ Cup frozen Mango Chunks
1 Banana, cut into 1-inch chunks
Flesh from 1 ripe Avocado
½ Cup Orange Juice
½ Cup Pomegranate Juice
1 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Antioxidant Smoothie Blend

Directions

Place the fruit in the blender in the order listed. Pour the 1/2 Cup of orange juice into the blender and cover.

Start the blender on its highest setting, then remove the lid insert and start pouring the pomegranate juice through the opening in the lid. You may have to stop and stir once or twice, then continue pouring juice into the blender until the smoothie begins to blend in a vortex.

While the smoothie is blending at a constant rate, add your scoop of Superfruit Blend Powder (or whatever smoothie addition you prefer) through the opening in the lid. Blend for 10 more seconds, then serve and enjoy.

Chef's Notes

While they are a cool luxury, you certainly don’t need a big ol’ fancy blender to make this smoothie. The trick lies in the order in which you add your ingredients, and also in how you incorporate the liquid into your smoothie. Follow the directions, and your not-so-fancy machine will do the job quite well.
