Start your morning off with this delicious Mango Avocado Smoothie that is creamy, refreshing and dairy-free!


Do you ever just have one of those days where you realize you probably should have never gotten out of bed??  Yeah that would be today.  If anything could have gone wrong, it definitely did this morning…..let’s see, my alarm failed to go off so I overslept, I skipped my shower in an attempt to rush out the door, but of course couldn’t find my keys to save my life, then proceeded to try and go a faster route to work, but that was of course under construction and only made my commute longer, then if things couldn’t get any worse, some idiot rolled into the back of me at a stop light before driving off… my brand new car no less!  Ugh.  And that was all before 9:00 AM.  Like I said, some days are better off spent in bed with the covers pulled over your head.

But enough of my ranting {I’ll finish that up to some unfortunate person in my office later}, here’s a new avocado recipe!  Avocado never ceases to amaze me, I’ve used it in egg salads, made a frosting out of it, used it in chocolate pudding, and of course made myself a simple guacamole.  This little fruit is so versatile that I thought, why not put it in a smoothie??  Well if you ever wondered if your smoothies were creamy before, you probably never had them with avocado – they are SO creamy!  I’m talking borderline soft-serve-frozen-yogurt-that-you-get-from-mcdonalds-kind-of-creamy, yeah it’s kind of amazing.

This smoothie is really easy to make too, simply throw everything into a blender (THIS one is my absolutely faaaaavorite ahh obsessed) and you’re ready to go in no time.  Perfect for grabbing on-the-go and can certainly be made ahead of time, just make sure to keep it nice and cold.


Just a side note, you could always use regular orange juice such as Simply or Tropicana, but just remember that those tend to be loaded with unnecessary sugars.  I’m so fortunate that my local Whole Foods sells freshly squeezed OJ that they will prepare for you right in front of you or while you shop to save you the hassle of doing it yourself, but c’mon, who doesn’t love the fresh stuff??

Hope you all enjoy this and fingers crossed your morning didn’t start off as rough as mine!  Although in hind sight, there could be worse things than running late to work…..sometimes all you need is a long breather and stiff cup of coffee!  And maybe some chocolate…..just sayin.

    YUM! I’ve been on the hunt for smoothies to pin to my Vega Pinterest contest smoothie board and I think this might be the one. I’ve never used mint in a smoothie before, can’t wait to give it a try!!

  2. Tima says:

    Hey I was just wondering if it’s 145 for the 4 portions or just one?
    Either way can’t wait to try this!

    This was so good! Loved it.

    Okay, so I didn’t bother with the measurements because I’m lazy that way AND I added peaches. I’ll definitely make this again, or some variety thereof.

  4. Ursula Bell says:

    I am curious to try this! I’ve been trying to figure out how to add more avocado to my diet. I’ve never really tried eating it plain – just as guacamole so I’m hunting for others ways to eat it. Can’t wait to try this!

  5. Leny says:

    This reminds me of the avocado shake that I grew up with and my grandma made for me. It looks so good and healthy. I will definitely give this a try. Thanks for sharing it.
