Avocado Blueberry Smoothie Recipe

Avocado is one of those magical ingredients that can be used in both savory and sweet recipes. This ability to straddle both the sweet and savory sides of the culinary world makes avocado a highly versatile ingredient; perhaps one of the many reasons for its widespread popularity. As well as its versatility, avocado is also known for its plethora of health benefits, and, with the addition of blueberries, another superfood, this smoothie is a true nutrient bomb.

In our opinion, the perfect smoothie should be thick, flavorful, and nutrient dense, just like this avocado blueberry smoothie, created by recipe developer Jennine Rye. Smoothies are a great way to get more vitamins and minerals in your diet, and they are also a great way to reduce waste and use up any fresh produce that might be overripe. Everyone knows how quickly avocados turn from being rock hard to green mush, and this is the perfect recipe to use those avocados that are like ticking time bombs in your fruit basket. Enjoy this as a delicious, nutritious, and filling snack whenever you feel the urge for something healthy that doesn't skimp on taste.

Gather the ingredients for this avocado blueberry smoothie recipe

To make this recipe for avocado blueberry smoothies, first you will need to gather the ingredients. You will need a ripe avocado, a banana, frozen blueberries, lemon juice, honey, coconut milk, and coconut flakes.

Some smoothie recipes call for ice to chill and thicken the drink, but this can end up causing the smoothie to become watery and less flavorful, as the ice will quickly melt and dilute the other ingredients. Instead, Rye recommends using frozen fruit, and in this instance, frozen blueberries. They will do the same job as the ice, but will not make the resulting smoothie watery. Just make sure that your blender or smoothie maker is able to handle frozen fruits — the last thing you want is a damaged blade!

Add the ingredients to the blender

While some might say that the order in which you place foods into a blender will affect the consistency, we aren't too sure about the validity of that statement. To be on the safe side, start by adding the softer products, AKA the avocado and the banana, to the blender. The banana, along with the avocado, helps to give this smoothie it's wonderfully thick and smooth texture. Then, add in the frozen blueberries, the lemon juice, and the honey. Finally, pour the coconut milk into the blender, and then place the lid securely on top.

Blend the ingredients

Once the lid is securely in place, turn on the food processor and let the blender blades do all the hard work for you. Depending on the type of blender you have, it may take a little more or less time until all of the ingredients have been blended to perfection, so keep an eye on the consistency.

Serve the smoothies

When the smoothie is ready, simply pour it out between two glasses and top each smoothie with a few coconut flakes. Any unused or leftover smoothie can be stored for up to a day in the fridge. Just be aware that the ingredients might discolor slightly or separate; the separation can be easily amended by giving the mixture a quick stir before enjoying.
