3 pitfalls that are stopping you from Creating Healthy Habits that last

Avocado and Berry Breakfast Smoothie

One of the many complaints we receive is that people do not have enough time to eat breakfast in the mornings.  This Avocado and Berry Breakfast Smoothie is the exact solution for those extra busy mornings.  

Healthy Smoothie Recipe

I am sure that many of you have heard the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  While every meal that we eat is important, consuming breakfast helps to get our day off to the right start.  When we go all night without eating, we need something to energize our bodies to begin our day.  Many times, when we make healthy choices for breakfast we are more likely to make healthy choices throughout the rest of the day as well.  Studies have shown that people who eat breakfast have a healthier weight, better focus, and have less risk of many chronic diseases.  

Avocados have tons of healthy fats and potassium and may even help lower cholesterol levels.  They bring so much flavor to anything you add them to.  The high fat content (keeping in mind they are healthy fats!) helps keep you full for hours so you are not starving by the time lunch rolls around.  The berries in the smoothie have a ton of fiber that also help to keep us full and keep our digestive tracts running smoothly.  

Healthy Smoothie Recipe

The best part about this recipe is that it only takes about five minutes to make! All you need is a cup of almond milk, some plain greek yogurt, ½ of an avocado, ½ of a banana, ¼ cup of blueberries and strawberries, nutmeg, and some ice.  Toss all of the ingredients into a blender and blend up until it is a nice, smooth consistency.  

You can put all of the ingredients except for the almond milk and yogurt in a small baggie and keep in the freezer so it is all ready to go when you wake up in the morning.  Then all you need to do is to throw the fruit, yogurt, and almond milk in the blender and you can even drink it on the way out the door.  What do you like to put in your smoothies?

    Why do you use Almond milk instead of regular milk? Also, why Greek yogurt? What is the difference there?

      Hi! Great question. Plain Greek yogurt usually has more protein/less sugar than plain regular yogurt, which I prefer. For the milk, I just prefer the flavor of almond milk. Hope this helps!

    Just tried this smoothie recipe today. I usually add more fruit and less liquid than what is in this recipe to my smoothies, so I was expecting it to turn out super watery and not very sweet. However, it turned out to be delicious, with just the right amount of sweetness and a great consistency! This is my very first recipe of y’alls to try. My cookbook is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, and I’m super excited to receive it and try many more!

    Hi
    I love smoothies but not a fan of Bananas at all. Anything else I can use.. Plantain? I need the potassium that i know bananas provide

      Hi! You can sub whatever fruits you enjoy. For extra potassium, go for spinach, plain yogurt, avocado, and/or cantaloupe in your smoothies. I actually enjoy adding pureed butternut squash to smoothies- it’s a great sub for bananas! xo
