Alyssa's Favorite Green Smoothie with greens, avocado and SO much goodness!

Sitting here pondering my Saturday, preparing the to-do lists in my head, all I really want to think and talk about is the delicious my absolute FAVORITE green smoothie that I'm currently sipping on.

This morning, packing up my blender with yummy green goodness, I realized this was the fourth day this week I had made this exact smoothie. I figured since I've been enjoying it so much, I should share it you too!If you've ever wanted to try a green smoothie, I'm sure that you've turned to Google to see what your options are, only to find out that there are

If you've ever wanted to try a green smoothie, I'm sure that you've turned to Google to see what your options are, only to find out that there are tons (like literally millions) of green smoothie recipes out there. How could you choose? Everyone has their own twist to making a healthy green smoothie and trust me, I've tried my share of them.

I've found ingredients that I love to include in every single one (like Kale and Spinach), and I'm happy to repor that I've finally found a recipe that has the perfect amount of sweet and green. It's so yummy.

Some of my New Year's resolutions were to eat more veggies, eat less sugar and to have a liquid meal each day. It's easiest to have my liquid meal at breakfast because I totally adore smoothies, especially sweet, fruit-based smoothies. To cut back on sugar, I've tried to avoid packing my morning meal with just fruit and have played around with different green ingredients. I've tried peas, swiss chard, fennel, parsley, kale, spinach, avocado, among others and finally found the combo that gives me the exact type of smoothie my body craves every morning.

For this recipe, the sweetness comes from berries and coconuts, the amazing, creamy texture comes from avocados (they almost act like bananas in the texture they bring). I've combined my fave dark leafy friend, the almighty kale, along with avocado, my lovely little antioxidant-packed blueberries, almond milk and unsweetened coconut.

Sipping this, you would almost never know you were drinking vegetables for breakfast, aside from the very green color!

  1. I feel like you are going to think I am a mean person who loves to correct people, and trust me, I’m not, but i just wanted to point out that you used the wrong “you’re” at the end of this is. As I type this I realize how common a mistake like this is and how silly of me it is to comment about it, but I do editorial work for my local newspaper, and well, I’ve sort of grown a knack for pointing these things out!

  2. Where’s the “Pinterest” button for this one? I don’t see it and this is definitely one I want to pin – no bananas and no celery! Woo hoo!
