Recipes: Avocado Berry Smoothie

This morning I started my day with Key Lime and Grapefruit Whipped Shea Butter Scrub and an Avocado and Berry Smoothie to help my metabolism started after 8 hours of sleep! Eating a balanced breakfast including good carbs, protein and fat can help reduce the risk of weight gain, fatigue throughout the day and muscle wasting*. I need to keep up my energy for soapmaking after all!

This recipe only takes about 5 minutes and is a great way to start your day! This recipe is packed with protein and due to the avocado this does have a fair amount of fat but it is good fat and it will give you sustained energy until your next meal unlike quick burning simple carbs. For your reference I included nutrition info below.

  • 16 oz Pure Almond Unsweetened
  • 2 scoop , 100% Whey Protein. NOTE - any protein powder will do. I used EAS Vanilla Whey Protein powder. If you use another protein powder nutrition info will vary slightly.
  • 1 cup Strawberries, Fresh or Frozen
  • 1 cup Blueberries Fresh or Frozen
  • 75 g Avocado(about 1/2 fruit)
1) Wash the blueberries and strawberries. I like to wash fruit ahead of time and freeze it and use the frozen fruit in my smoothies but you can use unfrozen as well, or store bought frozen fruit as long as it is unsweetened whole fruit.
2) Slice strawberries if necessary.
3) In a blender add Almond Milk, Berries, Protein and Avocado and blend on high for ten seconds, and then in 3 or 4, five second pulses.
Serve immediately - 2 servings

Here is to happy healthy mornings!



  1. Thanks for posting this recipe. My sister and I have been having lots of juices and shakes lately and it really helps keep us going.

    Happy Easter. 

  2.  I would love to get a recipe! I like adding flax seed and nut butter too! It all depends on what I am having a shake for - my post workout shakes are a little different for instance. There is a Chocolate peanut butter raspberry shake I really love making!
