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.
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?
