I’m not really much of a smoothie person. Especially fruit smoothies. There is just something about the texture of frozen fruit blended that I can’t get past. It doesn’t go down smooth and I don’t like to chew my drinks. 😉 I tried really hard to like fruit smoothies when I was going through this juice cleanse phase. {Which I don’t recommend…if you’ve never been hangry before you will be on a juice cleanse}.

Basically the only kind of smoothie you’ll catch me drinking is something that has peanut butter and chocolate in it. And some yogurt to make it creamy. I’m not entirely sure if this really counts as healthy though, so I added some avocado to make me feel better about myself.

I had some left over after I made these avocado oatmeal raisin cookies and since I don’t normally eat avocado I tossed it first into a ziploc and then into the freezer. I meant to let my sister, the avocado freak, eat it while she was visiting in September but I totally forgot. I had to use it up though because all our spare freezer space has been devoted to housing all the pork products that were just delivered from our favorite farmer. Seriously, have you ever eaten humanely and locally raised pork or chicken? It is the BEST you’ll ever taste.

What were we talking about? Oh, right. Smoothies. Normally you add a banana into a peanut butter smoothie but I don’t like bananas so I left it out. Weirdly enough, the avocado gives it a kind of banana-y flavor anyway so if you’re a banana fan I bet a frozen banana would lend not only to the creaminess but play nicely with the avocado flavor, too.

Are you a fruit smoothie drinker? Or do you prefer something smoother like peanut butter and chocolate?

I modified it slightly to fit my diet. I used a cup of unsweetened vanilla cashew milk, 3/4 cup of frozen avocado chucks, about two table spoons of natural peanut butter and, paleo protein powder. I will say it was very good. Next Iā€™m going to replace the milk with water and the peanut butter with kiwi and see how that taste.

This smoothie may be the only thing i'll be convinced to consume avocadoes for! I hate the green demons but alas, my diet needs some in it :( lovely recipe Meaghan, may i ask what the nutritional values are? Or just the calories even! Please and thank you ~*

This would be the only way I'd eat avocado, too! If you don't like the taste of avocado make sure you add a banana to cover up the mild flavor it brings to the smoothie. And I don't calculate calories but I know there are lots of helpful websites like myfitnesspal.com and caloriecount.com where you can put in the ingredients and amounts and calculate the calories!

It works! And if you like bananas they make a great addition for an even creamier texture :)
