Blackberry Avocado Smoothie (See Jane Make)


I know, I know, green smoothies are all the rage and I admittedly partake in the trend, almost daily.  But sometimes, it's good to shake things up.  I had a bunch of blackberries that I had to use immediately and I've read that people use avocados in lieu of bananas in smoothies (I like a slight banana taste, so used half of both).  Enter: the Avocado Blackberry Bliss.  (I named it myself!)  Would you try this smoothie combo?

- half an avocado
- handful of blackberries (fresh or frozen)
- handful of strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 t. chia seeds
- 1/2 c. almond milk
- half a banana (optional)

- 1/2 c. kale or spinach (optional)

  1. I didn't even consider adding avocado to my smoothies. I will in the future!

  2. looks great. good choice to go 1/2 on the banana. Its one of the higher sugar containing fruits. Too many fruits can make your healthy smoothie into a high sugar one. good choice here with using berries

  3. What exactly do chai seeds taste like? and what are their benefits?

  5. @jenna - they don't taste like anything (in smoothies, at least) and they have tons of fiber and antioxidants!

  7. I'm still mostly staying away from green smoothies since I simply can't imagine that a smoothie with kale or spinach is actually tasty. I do like avocado though, so maybe I'll give it a try. :)

  9. Yummm!! This looks delicious!! Quick question - what type of blender do you use? I've been looking to buy a new blender, and have read tons of reviews online but a lot of them are mixed. Thanks for the recipe! xo

  13. I would totally drink that - loooove avocados ;) I'm a convert to spinach+ banana+almond milk smoothies, but have learned the hard way that you have to be careful about what colour fruit you mix in... once I put strawberries in and ended up with a brown smoothie, which is just NOT visually appealing ;)
