Are you still with me on those New Year’s Resolutions? Of course, I haven’t been as on top of mine as I planned, but I have my reminders up next to my bed and I am making a conscious effort to do the best I can. That’s all we can really ask of ourselves, after all.
If you’ve fallen off the healthy eating wagon a bit, or if you just want to continue on your streak, this smoothie is the perfect quick breakfast or snack. It has only a few ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
Vanilla protein powder (optional)
Now, let me explain about the avocado before you get all grossed out. Avocado is a great alternative to banana to thicken a smoothie, and sometimes I just get a little banana-ed out. You can’t taste the avocado at all. I promise! Instead, this is a refreshing smoothie with a distinct mint flavor, a hint of green tea, and of course lots of blueberry.
I’ll admit that I’ve definitely been in a smoothie rut lately, sticking to my 2 or 3 favorite combinations, but this recipe has definitely found a permanent spot on my smoothie list.
What’s your favorite smoothie combination?
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 2 cups green tea, cooled in the fridge if possible
- 2 tablespoons honey
- small handful fresh mint leaves
- 1 cup ice (if tea was warm, double ice)
- (optional) 1-2 scoops vanilla protein powder
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until completely smooth.
