Green Fruity Smoothie


Everybody needs a go-to smoothie they can't mess up, plus will be satisfying and filling -- and this is mine!


The healthy fat in the avocado and chia seeds provides energy, makes your smoothie filling, and helps your body absorb the fat-soluble vitamins and other nutrients in the other ingredients.

Any fruit will do. I especially like blueberries, mango, or cherries. I aim for about a ½ cup of fruit.


I always add protein powder to my smoothie, but you can also use collagen powder. Protein is very important for promoting blood sugar stability and satiety. I've tried a lot of organic protein powders, and I have landed on one by Nutragen. I like this protein powder because it tastes great and it does not contain any added sugar, sugar alcohols, or stevia. It is organic, dairy-free, and gluten-free. There are 20 grams of protein per serving, which is the goal for a meal or snack. I also appreciate the digestive enzymes.


I N G R E D I E N T S


1 cup non-dairy milk, such as almond, macadamia, or cashew

1 cup organic baby spinach

1/2 cup frozen mango chunks or blueberries (either one tastes great)

1/2 avocado

1 Tbsp chia seeds

1 serving of your favorite protein powder or favorite collagen powder.


optional addition: 1/2 frozen banana; the riper the more flavorful


D I R E C T I O N S

  1. Add all ingredients to the blender.

  2. If berries or mango are fresh, add 4-6 ice cubes to make the smoothie colder.

  3. Blend until you have a smooth, creamy consistency.

  4. Pour smoothie into a cup (preferably a glass or stainless steel cup) and Enjoy!
