This Creamy Orange Avocado Smoothie recipe tastes like a Creamsicle in a glass. This velvety smoothie ticks all of those healthy boxes. Vegan, Gluten Free, Grain Free, Dairy Free and Whole 30 friendly. Most importantly though, it is delicious.
I remember a time when I never ate avocados.
They just never occurred to me.
Somebody should have slapped me! 😉
CREAMY ORANGE AVOCADO SMOOTHIE
Slowly, these creamy fruits of delight made their way into my grocery cart and after my Whole 30 Experience, it’s been avocado city up in here.
This Creamy Orange Avocado Smoothie is so thick and creamy you could eat it with a spoon.
It’s like a creamsicle dream and you are going to love it on a hot summer day.
I added frozen bananas to make it uber creamy and to replace the milk in this smoothie, which I’ve been doing a lot of lately.
Because of my love of cheese, I’ve pretty much cut cow’s milk out of my diet for some balance. I’ve been loving coconut oil in my coffee ( aka Vegan Bulletproof Coffee ) and I used to use almond milk for my smoothies, however, finding organic almond milk is proving to be a challenge.
I think the time is coming to finally make my own almond milk at home. I wonder if my Nutribullet will be able to handle the load. Have any of you used a regular blender to make a nut milk? I’m curious to know.
Luckily, frozen bananas combined with the aforementioned avocados create an almost soft serve like consistency, deeming any milk unnecessary. If you have any picky pants people to feed, don’t tell them the ingredients.
They will never guess avocado.
They might kiss you though. Because creamy homemade smoothies made fresh are nice. Super nice. 🙂
I hope you enjoy!
