Adding frozen avocado to smoothies has been the biggest smoothie “hack” for me to get the thick creamy texture that I need!

My everyday smoothie is a chocolate avocado one and today I have a green/vanilla flavored version to share.

You can buy your avocado chunks already frozen, or you can dice an avocado and freeze in a plastic bag.  I’ve done both and both work well for smoothies.

Between the frozen avocado, frozen banana and paleo yogurt, the texture of this smoothie is perfection if you love a really thick, creamy smoothie!

Of course to thin it out, just add a little bit more almond milk until you get the texture you want.

What You Need to Make this Avocado Green Smoothie

Simple ingredients make the best smoothies!  Here’s everything you’ll need for this one:

  • diced frozen avocado
  • frozen banana slices
  • spinach or kale
  • plant based yogurt (I used Culina)
  • unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • plant based vanilla protein powder, optional
  • maple syrup or raw honey

How to Make This Thick Creamy Avocado Green Smoothie

Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  I like to use my Vitamix for this one because it makes 2-3 smoothies.  

You can always divide the recipe in half to make one large smoothie if you prefer, and won’t need a large blender for that amount.  

For smaller or single serve smoothies, I use my Ninja blender.

How to Sweeten This Smoothie

The bananas and vanilla protein powder will sweeten the smoothie somewhat, but you’ll probably also want to add a small amount of sweetener depending on how sweet your protein powder is.

I like honey or maple syrup, and they also work well if you’re omitting the protein powder completely.

If you’re not using sweetened protein powder, use honey or maple syrup to taste until you get the right level of sweetness – about 1 tablespoon.

I hope you’re ready for a new go-to healthy green smoothie!  Grab your ingredients and favorite blender and enjoy!
