Mar. 30, 2018Hi, I’m Allie, also known as “the Health Mason,” and I’m a blogger, certified health coach, and recipe developer. Today I’m here to share one of my go-to recipes with a secret green ingredient.
Let’s face it, there are too many green smoothie recipes on the Internet to count, and believe me, I’ve tried many combinations! However, my all-time favorite must be this green smoothie (called my Go-To Green Smoothie on my website), which of course includes avocado!
Avocado is my secret trick for smoothies. It makes them super creamy and fluffy, while giving you a good boost of healthy fats. I usually start my morning with this smoothie, and thanks to the fats from the avocado, fiber from the ground flaxseed and protein powder, I am full for hours!
I like starting my morning with this smoothie in particular since it is nutrient-dense, because I add tons of greens! I can rest assured knowing that even if I don’t have another veggie the rest of the day I started my morning with handfuls of spinach.
It is the perfect breakfast especially as we start shifting into the warmer months of spring! Enjoy!
