I love avocados, and ESPECIALLY in smoothies. This particular smoothie is rich with antioxidants, fiber, vitamin A, folate, and Omega 3 fatty acids. You can add a bit of sweetener if you’d like, but I enjoy mine as is. My three year old loves this “monster green smoothie”, but doesn’t like the texture of the Chia seeds. If I’m making one smoothie for him, I’ll just add the chia at the end and serve his without.
Mango Avocado Smoothie
makes (2) six-ounce smoothies
1/2 of a Hass Avocado
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/4 to 1/2 cup coconut water (or more depending on your desired thickness)
ice, as needed
agave nectar, Stevia, or other sweetener (optional)
Combine your chia seeds with 1/4 cup coconut water in a small bowl or glass, and let sit for 10 minutes. Add your chia and water to the bowl of a food processor, and add your avocado and mango. Puree until the mixture is nice and smooth, then add your ice. When well combined, start streaming in the remaining 1/4 cup coconut water until the mixture is to the texture of your liking. Add sweetener if using.
