Having a smoothie for breakfast has been the norm lately, but I really found myself missing the milk or cream I would add to make it silky and smooth.

So this morning I just happened to spot an aging avocado on my counter and thought… why not?  Of course, once I finished my smoothie and google “blueberry avocado smoothie” I realized I was the last person in the world to figure this out.

Whoops, my bad. (Say that in your best “Clueless” voice)

But, after some further inspection, I think the jumbled mass of ingredients I assembled is in fact not something I have seen on the internet before.

Love that you can see little green flecks of veggie in there!

This smoothie achieved everything I had hoped it would.  A thick yet smooth consistency, an abundance of healthy ingredients, and a satisfying great flavor.

  1. I’ve been interested in trying the Paleo diet! I think I could definitely handle it with smoothies like these!

    1. I am only on day 6… so have not really SEEN any results… but I can testify that the swelling I was experiencing from my pregnancy has dramatically reduced! 🙂

  2. Oh that’s awesome to hear! And you are off to a great start already it looks. 🙂

  3. Sometimes the best recipes are the accidentally created ones! I have two friends on the paleo diet, so I may succumb to peer pressure … but the good kind, especially with smoothies like these. I always feel tired at around 10 or 11, and I think it’s because I always have toast or a bagel for breakfast.
