Smoothies

Strawberry & Avocado Bowl

March 10, 2016

I love adding avocado to smoothies, it creates a really creamy and smooth texture which tastes amazing!

I used to be wary about eating avocados because of the high fat content and all of the scary myths associated with consuming too much fat, but I discovered that not all fat is bad for you! In fact, avocados are made of mono-unsaturated fats which can aid a healthy lifestyle and actually act as a ‘nutrient booster’ by helping us absorb more nutrients when eaten with other fruit.

Ingredients

  • 1 banana, frozen and chopped
  • 5 strawberries, ideally frozen
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 tbsp of oats
  • 1 tsp of maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup of milk (I used coconut)

Method

Simply blend together until thick and creamy, add more milk to make it thinner if you prefer. I topped mine with granola, fruit, seeds and coconut.
