This smoothie recipe made with avocado, blueberry, oatmeal, and flax is ideal for anyone including babies, toddlers and kids!
My 10 month old loves smoothies and has been enjoying them for several months now. Typically, they are a great way for mommy to buy some time while the baby feeds himself breakfast.
On a good day, smoothie time can provide mommy with 10-15 minutes of freedom to drink a cup of coffee or, gasp, prepare her own breakfast.
All of that changed with today’s Avocado Blueberry Smoothie. It was gone in 2 minutes. Literally. I turned away to pour myself a cup of coffee and by the time I turned around, it was half gone.
If you have never added avocado to a smoothie, I encourage you to give it a try. The rich, creamy fruit provides a smooth texture to any smoothie and fills your body with heart-healthy fats. For more on the health benefits of avocado, check out my Avocado Egg Sandwich recipe.
Using frozen fruit:
If you’re looking to use frozen blueberries for this smoothie there is no issue. It would take the place of the ice cubes being used.
Do oats need to be cooked first in a smoothie?
You do not have to cook the oats first. They can be blended dry.
Where do you find whole fat yogurt?
Whole fat yogurt is in the yogurt aisle – just make sure it doesn’t say low fat, fat-free, or reduced-fat. It usually says “whole milk plain”.
How long does this smoothie stay fresh for?
This smoothie will keep up to 48 hours in the refrigerator.
