Avocado Smoothie

This week has been pretty protein heavy for me but our bodies still rely on fats, especially good fats which aids the absorption on nutrients. One day I will get the diet split just right, but at the moment it’s trial and error and what works best!

So this morning and with some ingredients to use up I quickly chucked this into the blender to go alongside my breakfast of poached eggs on toast (no butter).

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1/2 Avocado (44g)
  • Juice from half a lime
  • 68g Curly Kale
  • 38g broccoli (or one big chunk)
  • 68g Spinach
  • 100ml Orange Juice (or juice of one fresh Orange)

Chuck into a blender (remember to ensure you have the blade in it – I forgot and stood there for a minute wondering why it wasn’t blending) and serve!
