Ingredients

  • 1 medium avocado peeled and pitted

  • Unsweetened almond milk, cashew milk, oat milk, or other nut milk can be swapped for coconut milk.
  • You can use frozen avocado instead of fresh avocado.
  • The ice cubes will help the smoothie thicken. Skip them if you want the smoothie to be thinner.
  • To store: Store the green smoothie for a day in the fridge but you’ll have to give it a mix as the ingredients may separate. 
  • To freeze: You can freeze the green smoothie in an airtight container with some space on top as the smoothie will expand as it freezes.
