Avocado Green Smoothie

I found this recipe and have changed out and added some produce to suit my taste buds. I love this smoothie. The avocado gives it a very creamy taste. This is a great way to drink your veggies first thing in the morning!


3-4 small carrots, broken up
3-4 celery sticks, with greens if possible, broken up
1 red pepper cut up
1/2-1 avocado without pit and peeled
1-2 handfuls fresh spinach or kale
3-4 fresh tomatoes or 2 14oz canned organic tomatoes
1/2-1 cup rejuvelac or water
a few sprigs fresh cilantro
a pinch cayenne pepper and salt

Add veggies to blender, we own a Vitamix which does a great job. Blend until all mixed. I've also added some lemon cod liver oil or some flax seed oil in the past. Also try adding a few tablespoons of nutritional yeast. If you come up with your own recipe, Please share, I'd love to hear from you. Avocados are a good source of potassium. Please visit www.avocado.org/nutrition/ to learn more about the benefits of avocados. The next time you have an extremely ripe avocado, don't throw it out, make a veggie shake!

Serves 4 or more and some left over!


  1. That sounds like a very nutritious smoothie!

    Thank you for sharing!


  2. Hi there,
    How do you store your avacado since they turn color once you peel them?

  3. There are a few things you can try to keep the avocado fresh. If I decide to use only 1/2 of an avocado, I slice in half length wise, usually the pit stays in one half. I will use the half without the pit and leave the pit in the other half and store that in a container in the refrigerator. I usually try to eat the unused avocado within a couple of days of cutting it.

    I've also read that mashing up the avocado and freezing it will help it keep fresh. Hope that helps.

  4. Avocado Smoothies are my Favorite. I often make one with Raspberries, Peaches, Raw Cacao Powder, Coconut Milk and half of a Avocado. Its like chocolate mousse :)

    Loving this site. We have similar taste in recipes I think!
    Wanted also to invite you to participate in a weekly event I host titled Seasonal Sundays. I love eating seasonally- and love this event so much for all the inspiration it brings.

    Wonderful finding your blog :)
    Happy Sunday!
