Satiating fiber and healthy fats from avocado and chia seeds make this smoothie a hunger-buster. This has been my favorite creamy spring/summer smoothie now that I have fresh mint and kale in my garden, and MAN is it good!
1/3 to 1/2 an avocado added into the mix makes this smoothie extra creamy. Don’t hate it til you’ve tried it, because it’s my smoothie secret weapon. Healthy fat, creamy texture, delicious taste, and FULL FOR HOURS. Seriously, I challenge you to drink this for breakfast and see how long you stay full until, you’d be surprised. I’m usually reaching for a snack come 10am after eating breakfast around 7:30 (totally normal and expected), but when I drink this smoothie for breakfast I could care less for that mid morning snack. Great for those busy work days when you may or may not have time to honor that am snack hunger. Satisfying and energizing!
This refreshing and incredibly creamy smoothie is high in healthy unsaturated fats, filling for lasting energy! Perfectly smooth and dreamy. A great way to start your day off strong!
Blend all ingredients in a high powered blender on high until smooth. Enjoy immediately!

I’m sure you’ve had it pounded into your head, but remember — don’t be afraid of fat! Fat is vital to absorbing fat-soluble vitamins (A,D,E, and K), helps keep us full and satisfied, and plays many other roles in our body such as hormone regulating, insulation, and brain health. Fat is good! For our heart health, adding in monounsaturated fats in your diet is key (such as nuts and seeds, fatty fish, avocado), and saving our saturated fats (bacon, whole milk, cheese, icecream, etc). for more special occasions can be healthy for our tickers. Fun foods certainly have a place in our eating patterns. 🙂
