Anyone else absolutely love adding avocado to a smoothie? It makes it sooooo creamy, must be all those good fats 😉
Can you taste avocado in smoothies?
Avocados have a very mild flavor, especially in smoothies. Depending on the other ingredients you add to a smoothie, the avocado does not have much taste!
Especially in this mint chocolate chip avocado smoothie – mint and chocolate are the primary flavors in this avocado spinach smoothie! And the avocado most definitely is to thank for the creaminess.
Do you peel avocados for smoothies?
Most definitely! Make sure you remove the skin and pit before putting the avocado into your blender – only use the flesh of the avocado! Here are a few tips on how to successfully add avocado to your smoothie…
cut avocado lengthwise into two halves
remove pit with a spoon
cut each half into wedges
scoop avocado out of peel with a spoon
Can you make an avocado smoothie the night before?
Yes, yes, yes! I suggest storing it in a cup with a lid or even a mason jar with the lid secured tightly. When you’re ready to enjoy it the next morning, simply stir with a straw and dive into the creamy, minty goodness that is this avocado spinach smoothie!
A few more tips for prepping this mint chocolate chip shake.
While you can absolutely blend ahead of time and store in fridge like above, if you want the FRESHEST smoothie, measure out all ingredients the night before and freeze them (all except for the almond milk).
And then just before you’re ready to enjoy, pop the frozen ingredients + almond milk into the blender, and blend away to creamy oblivion.
Oh and the chocolate chips sprinkled on top are a must (IMO) so make sure you don’t forget them! I hope you guys have the best St. Patrick’s Day and remember to enjoy this avocado spinach smoothie to make things festive in your home!
