Although I love going to Jamba Juice or other smoothie places, the smoothie can get expensive and when they are so easy and cheap to make at home — why go out? Plus you can add more fun and healthy items at home.
Whenever blueberries or strawberries or other fruits are on sale at the store I stock up and freeze them — perfect for smoothies!
Berry Avocado Smoothie
1 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup almond milk
1 Tablespoon whey protein powder
1/2 Tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 avocado, frozen
1/2 cup blueberries, frozen (you can use any berries: strawberries, blackberries, raspberries etc.)
1/2 cup strawberries, frozen
1 cup fresh baby spinach
1. Place liquids into blender and add all other ingredients.
2. Blend until smooth — about 5 minutes. Serves 2.
Nutrition Notes: Good fats, protein, antioxidants! A powerhouse smoothie!
Taste Test: Like I’ve said before, the addition of avocado makes for a super smooth and silky product! The addition of the spinach is something that may sound strange but you can’t even taste it — it just adds more of a nutritional punch to the smoothie!
