Since having a bun in the oven, I have been craving smoothies every morning. I think my sweet bambina must be a health nut already because she does a little dance after I slurp one down.
I feel so good knowing that every single ingredient I use is simple, whole, nourishing food. Just the way we as humans should be eating, otherwise known as "real food" or food with purpose!
It has been forever (at least since my matcha smoothie days – pre-pregnancy) since I tossed an avocado into a smoothie. I know what you're thinking.. "foolish joy". I agree! How could I have deserted this wonderful, buttery, fruit for months on end? Well... I've had my fair-share of guacamole and guac devilled eggs, as you might have noticed, so I'm still getting my avo fill in other ways.
Avos do something magical to smoothies that cannot be described in words, but it makes them uber creamy ... like the kind of creamy you remmber slurping in milkshakes as a kid. The main difference here is that this smoothie isn't full of additives!
This uber creamy smoothie serves 1 person generously or two (or 3 in my case). I normally share my smoothie with Walker.
You may have noticed I am using Greens+Kids (mixed berry). I used to add the regular Greens+O (Vegan) but since I'm pregnant, I have to avoid all the botanical ingredients in the regular greens+. The kids version has 25 organic fruits and vegetables.
It does NOT have skim milk added (in case you're wondering why the label states that). Health Canada mandates supplement companies to list skim milk if there are probiotics in a product because they are grown on a dairy medium, not unlike the large majority of probiotics on the market today.
I hope you love this smoothie as much as I do!
Have a joyous day!
