A simple, delicious, nourishing smoothie. The avocado adds a beautiful silky texture as well as filling good fats and loads of nutrition.
- 1 cup pineapple (approx) or orange, diced
- 1 banana/s
- ½ avocado/s
- 250 ml coconut water (1 cup)
- Ice (if required)
Leftovers can be frozen into little cups or ice-block moulds for a fast, healthy snack another day.
If you want a green boost, add in a handful of baby spinach (the smoothie in the photo has this). Spinach is pretty flavourless so it hides very well behind most flavours in a smoothie. Fresh mint is also lovely with this flavour combo.
Change the colour
Add raspberries to turn it pink.
Add protein (for more sustenance)
I often add a scoop of 180 Nutrition Superfood Protein powder (coconut flavour). They have both a whey protein and vegan (dairy-free) options. Shop for it HERE.
Replace the coconut water with a nut milk.
