Happy Monday, friends!
Jeff was out of town at a conference most of last week, so I had a great week of healthy cooking and recipe creation for pretty much every meal. It probably helps that our CSA started up again this month, and I’m in over my head in veggies. Salads are a must with every meal!
This smoothie recipe is actually adapted from Barre3. I’m currently participating in the June Barre3 Anywhere Challenge and although my workouts have been pretty consistent for the first three weeks of the challenge, my eating has been a bit all over the the place. Traveling certainly didn’t help, but with Jeff gone, I figured it was my week to really jump on board with the healthy eating side of things.
However, I must say I was pretty skeptical about adding avocado to a smoothie. Now, I love me some avocado–but blended in a fruit smoothie? I was pretty sure that was going to be gag worthy. But, of course, I was completely wrong. I couldn’t taste it all all!
Even better, it added a creamy, almost milkshake-like consistency to the smoothie while also adding healthy and filling fats, turning this snack into a full on meal. I am definitely going to have to try this addition more often!
