Summary

This refreshing smoothie is packed with healthy fats and fiber from avocado and banana. It's excellent as filling breakfast to-go, or as a pre- or post-workout snack. You can use almond milk or any other nondairy milk for a lower carb, vegan beverage. Or, for something sweeter and fruiter, you could use orange juice. Avocado is great in smoothies because it provides a rich, creamy texture.

    Love this! I will definitely be having this often. It was creamy, sweet, and tangy. I made it with orange juice and just a little bit of ice.

    Made this and it is my least like smoothie. Can't not recommend because someone may feel differently. Not just for me. Icy cold didn't help either.

    Quick, easy and satisfying smoothie. Best when the avocado and banana are at their most ripe point.
