‘Fill Me Up’ Paleo Avocado Smoothie

paleo avocado smoothie, avocado shakeI’m no stranger to a smoothie recipe. They are quick and convenient for breakfast or a filling snack, and they remind me of eating ice cream. Yum.

This one is particularly reministant of ice cream thanks to the avocado. Its super creamy, and give it a few extra minutes in the freezer after blending and you can enjoy it with a spoon as opposed to a straw. I sometimes keep a batch of this in the freezer for an after-dinner treat.

Avocado aside, the raw almonds amp up the “filling” factor even further, in addition to giving this a nice balance of healthy fats and protein in combination of the sweetness of the fruits.

You can top this with some bananas, Chia seeds or chopped raw almonds for a little texture.
