Creamy Avocado, Maca & Coconut smoothie

Ingredients

  • 1 small Avocado
  • 1/4 frozen banana
  • 1/4 of a 400g tin of coconut milk
  • 1tsp Maca powder
  • 6-7 whole almonds
  • Preferred quantity of almond milk Β for consistency
  • Juice of half a lime

Method

Simply place all the ingredients into your high powered blender (I use a nutri-bullet) and keep pulsing until the almonds have purified, released their oils and a smooth creamy mixture is created.

Add almond milk to create your preferred consistency. I love a thick smoothie bowl that I can eat with a spoon so I only added a little almond milk.

Enjoy!

Healthy tip

This deliciously creamy smoothie is packed full of the healthy kind of monosaturated and saturated fat that our body needs to function optimally and will keep you feeling satiated for hours. Fats play a critical role in helping move things along the intestinal tract, they are an important factor in the absorption of nutrients and are necessary for good cognitive function and healthy hormonal balances in the body.
