You need to try this smoothie. Don’t let the color scare you.
The other day after work I was jonesing for a smoothie when I saw the avocado sitting in the fridge. A light bulb went off in my head and this delicious, cold and creamy concoction was born.
Avocado Spinach Protein Smoothie
In the blender:
- 6 oz water
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I like the Designer brand)
- 50 grams of avocado (a little less than 1/2 an avocado)
- As much spinach as you can fit in your Magic Bullet.
Blend. Add more spinach. Blend more. Enjoy.
I first started putting spinach in my smoothies after reading all the other bloggers rave about their Green Monsters.
Life has never been the same. For all you non-belieievers, you really can’t taste the spinach. Really. And the avocado just brings this smoothie to another, awesomely delicious, level.
