Blue-avocado Smoothie Bowl

March 3, 2014 · 6 comments

This weekend, I was craving a protein pancake but didn’t have any eggs in the house so I decided to be a little creative with what I had on hand.

I had two ripe avocados that needed to be used, so I decided to try putting some in my smoothie. I’m not sure if it was the avocado, but this smoothie was light, flavorful and filling! I topped it off with a little left over muesli from MixMyOwn.com.

ALWAYS FRESH PRODUCE

I drink smoothies pretty fast and having to use a spoon made me slow down and enjoy it much more. Of course if your smoothie is watered down, this may be hard but the avocado thickened it up quite a bit I think making it easy to enjoy like a bowl of yogurt.

Blue-Avo Smoothie Bowl 

  • 1/2 small Banana (2-3 inches)
  • 1/4 cup Frozen Blueberries
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1/4 of an Avocado – didn’t measure but about 1/4 of the entire thing
  • 1 packet Perfect Fit Protein Powder, Vanilla
  • 2 tbsp Muesli or Granola on top (Optional)

Combine the ingredients in a blender and mix well until it is a smooth consistency. My banana was not frozen but I wish it had been to make it creamier. I topped it with muesli (a lower sugar granola alternative). Enjoy!

I know I’m not the first to eat a smoothie with a spoon out of a bowl, but this was the first time I have enjoyed a bowl myself. Same thing with putting avocado in my smoothie, first time for everything! Are you a fan of eating your smoothies?

I’ve got a very ripe avocado in the fridge now. I’ve used Florida avocados in smoothies before and they are amazing. Thinking of adding my Hass to a chocolate protein smoothie tonight. We’ll see!

That looks delicious! I had almost the exact same thing this morning. I love the idea of adding avocado though- filling and creamy!

I’m impressed that you have avocados that need to be used up! Mine are gone so quickly!

Avocado in a smoothie eh? I have never thought to try this, I’m sure it thickens it up really well!?

I put avocado in my smoothie the other day, which I’ve only done a couple times before. It made it so thick that I had trouble drinking it out of the glass. I should have used a bowl and spoon like you did!
