This banana avocado smoothie is rich, creamy, and thick enough to serve as an avocado smoothie bowl or in a glass; a healthy, nutrient, and antioxidant-packed way to start the day! Best of all, this avocado smoothie recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, and uses just ½ banana per serving!
Place all the ingredients in a blender or large jar (if using an immersion blender) and blend until smooth.I find it best to rely on my blender if I’m using frozen ingredients but using an immersion blender in a large jar has the potential to save you extra washing up if you then stick a straw in the pot and enjoy it straight from there.
If you prefer a thinner drinkable consistency, add a little more milk or water.Drink alone as a smoothie or top with several toppings (like a smoothie bowl) and dig in with a spoon!
Using frozen ingredients: if you plan on using lots of frozen ingredients, then it’s best to skip the immersion blender and use a high-powered blender, which will cut through and blend the frozen fruit easily. Using frozen ingredients is always preferred over adding ice cubes, which will just water down the shake.
Freeze your bowl: If you plan to serve this as a banana avocado smoothie bowl, then freezing the bowl in advance will help keep your smoothie thick and chilled for longer. This is most important when using frozen ingredients.
