    Just tried my first green smoothie...

    My wife is starting to get more and more on board with me which is really making me happy. She saw a site that had some Green Smoothie recipes on them and wanted to try them. It's not something I'm going to be drinking much of because I have a lot of weight I need to loose and am not ready to add too many fruits into the mix yet but I have to say it was very tasty

    We used 2 bananas, 6 strawberries, two hand-fulls of spinach and two cups of water.

    I've seen some other thread posts about Green Smoothies so I was wondering who all drinks them and what are some other good recipes that would fit a little better into my weight loss stage?

    I did that Google search and it had so many good links I thought I'd just paste the search link for you.

    I'm looking for a good avocado smoothie recipe myself.

    I don't post to my blog often but since you both asked about green smoothies, specifically ones with avocados in it I thought I would link to my smoothie recipe category.

    I used to make smoothies often then stopped. Starting this week I am going to make more smoothies and will publish more recipes on my blog. I am planning on creating a smoothie recipe e-book again.

    Let me know if you try any of the recipes and what you think of them!

    Here is one recipe:

    1/2 C Coconut Water
    1 Peach
    1/2 Avocado
    3 Cinnamon dashes
    Top with Ice
    Find me at Cheers!

    Try this:

    1 cup of coconut milk
    1/2 avocado
    1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
    2 teaspoons of maca powder
    1 handful of spinach
    1 banana (optional; I add this in PWO)

    If you like things on the sweeter side, double the amount of blueberries.

    I use coconut milk, honey, cinnamon and flax seed as the base of the smoothie and just throw in whatever fruit I have at the time. Today was honeydew melon and blackberries. Have them once a week-ish.

    It's a good way to use flax seed as the blades break them up - supposedly makes them digestible. Also gives it a nice crunch.

    My husband takes avocado with milk and Truvia, blends it up and it is delicious. Not sure if you drink milk or are looking for something fancier, but I love this recipe because I love the clean sweet taste of avocado and it really brings it out.

    I just made this. Yay?

    It was really good, but today I just made one of the best smoothies I ever had.

    2 small oranges peeled
    1 apple cored
    1 large avocado
    Spoonful of goat butter (sounds weird I know lol)
    1/2 spoon of sunflower lecithin
    Heaping spoon of Maca
    Heaping spoon of Chlorella
    Some cinnamon

    Then I juiced a head of romaine, half a bulb of fennel with the tops, and a carrot.

    Added all that to the blender. It was so damn good!
