Avocados are one of my favorite foods. They’re rich and creamy with a delicate flavor that pairs well with so many ingredients. Most people think of guacamole when looking for an avocado recipe. (For good reason…yum!) But avocados are great in other recipes like creamy salad dressings and smoothies.
Here’s a recipe for green smoothies with spinach and avocado. The spinach adds a fresh flavor and the avocado gives the smoothie a thick and creamy consistency. Sweeten as desired with your favorite natural sweetener.
