    Pineapple banana avocado smoothie

    It should come as no surprise that I have another smoothie to share with you all this week, this time featuring avocado! Typically, I spread it on sandwiches in lieu of mayo, but today I decided to use it as a smoothie base to add natural creaminess and texture. My Pineapple Banana Avocado Smoothie is a great way to start your day,

    Ingredients

    • Banana: The best fruit to add to your smoothies to naturally sweeten without adding sugar.
    • Avocado: Creamy and full of protein, they’re also a great source of heart-healthy mono-unsaturated fatty acids.
    • Pineapple: Extremely tropical in flavor, its sweet and tart and a fantastic source of Vitamin C.
    • Plain yogurt: Without adding much in flavor, it adds necessary liquid and aids in the creamy texture, while being a great source of probiotics.
    • Vanilla extract: Helps to sweeten and balance flavors of the smoothie.

    Start your Pineapple Banana Avocado Smoothie by cutting your fresh pineapple, making sure you cut enough to remove any green or brown spots so you don’t get any bitterness from the shell.

    Switch Things Up

    • Change out the fruit. Mango could be used in place of pineapple, or just add to the mix with some fresh berries.
    • Increase the protein. Use Greek yogurt instead of regular to increase the protein levels in this smoothie. Or add some protein powder!
    • Make it dairy-free. Instead of yogurt, use coconut milk or almond milk.
