Tropical Avocado Smoothie

Tropical Avocado Smoothie, Super creamy, full of fiber, and loaded with so many health benefits!

Tropical Avocado Smoothie

Ingredients:
2 cups milk
1 large ripe avocado
2 tsp agave nectar
1 cup frozen tropical fruit (I used a combo of pineapple and mango)
1 scoop of Protein Powder (optional)
shredded coconut (optional)

Directions:

  1. Pour 2 cups of milk into a blender.
  2. Remove avocado from skin and remove the pit. Cut the avocado into large chunks and add to blender.
  3. Add agave nectar, desired frozen fruit and scoop of protein powder; if desired. Blend for 20 seconds.
  4. Pour into glasses and top with shredded coconut; if desired.

This smoothie is like an avocado milkshake…it has a wonderful smooth and creamy texture. I personally use Jay Robb protein powders, I use either the egg white or whey protein. I don’t like protein powders loaded down with junk you can’t even read and I like that the Jay Robb powders use natural ingredients and use stevia to sweeten their protein powders. I have tried other healthy protein powders as well but the Jay Robb brand tastes the best to me thus far. In this smoothie I used the Jay Robb Pina Colada Whey Protein Powder to add an extra tropical flavor but feel free to use whatever flavor you want. This smoothie would also be equally delicious with out the added protein powder if you don’t want to use protein powder.

Hopefully the avocado in this smoothie doesn’t weird you out, It really does taste good and the avocado does not dominate the smoothie, it really has a more tropical fruit taste with the added creaminess of the avocado.
