Snack Size Creamy Avocado Smoothie

After a weekend of barbecuing and s’more making, I came home with the serious need to give my digestive system a break! I’ve been loosely following the Clean Program guidelines for healthy living for years now, and one of their recommendations is to have a shake to replace a meal anytime your digestive system needs a rest. I actually notice a difference in how I feel (including less bloating!) if I go one week having a smoothie for dinner instead of a solid meal. It’s a nice little tip I resort back to pretty often!

So my idea for the Snack Size Creamy Avocado Smoothie was that I just wasn’t that hungry! I also wanted to have something low in sugar to cancel out the amount of marshmallows I ate in a span of 48 hours. This smoothie gets super thick and creamy from the avocado, so no other frozen fruit is needed! I used only one scoop of protein powder (technically a 1/2 scoop per serving) to make sure it wasn’t too heavy. I topped the shake with a dollop of Greek yogurt, a little drizzle of natural peanut butter, and ate it with a spoon! I put the other one in my fridge (I always store my smoothies in mason jars!) for breakfast the next day!
