e-Book Giveaway! + Creamy Avocado Blueberry Smoothie

Try this delightful smoothie for an energy boost at any time of day! Blueberries and avocados go amazingly together, we've paired the two in some of our other recipes such as our Blueberry Cream Pie Pudding, and Blueberry-Kiwi Swirl Fro-Yo!

The great thing about this smoothie is it's low sugar, blueberries are very low-gi and instead of a banana you're using avocado to thicken it. You can make this into a meal replacement smoothie too by adding one scoop of your favourite protein powder (we recommend vanilla flavoured).

We have a new favourite non-dairy milk, it used to be just almond milk, but now we've been turning to the almond and coconut milk blend from Almond Breeze! It's more rich than regular almond milk and has a great coco-nutty flavour, perfect for this smoothie!

1/2 a large avocado or 1 small one
1 cup almond/coconut milk
1 cup water (or more to blend)
3/4 cup frozen blueberries
Squeeze of lemon juice (Important! or else it will taste flat)
Stevia to taste
1 scoop protein powder, optional!

Blend all ingredients on high until blended and a smooth consistency.
Super simple! And super creamy even for a vegan smoothie. :)

I'm feeling a little blue this morning
