Your Place For All Things Yummy

Creamy Green Smoothie


  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 avocado You can also now buy frozen chopped avocado, which is probably cheaper and just as good for this use.
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 cup plain, natural yogurt
  • squeeze honey
  • 1 cup almond milk or water Add more if it's too thick!


  • Blend until smooth!

I never use a recipe for smoothies, I just add ingredients I love. BUT please learn from my blender blow-up mistakes and be sure to add liquid first, then soft ingredients like fresh fruit or yogurt, then the frozen stuff on top. If you hear the blade whirring but don’t see any action, quickly push OFF and give it all a little stir to loosen it up. I’ve killed a Vitamix, a Blendtec, and a Ninja blender – all just a day or so over the warranty. I’m now on a cheapish blender I bought on sale at Canadian Tire and I really like it. It’s quiet AND so far is durable. This smoothie was yummy – I have no idea about the exact amounts but have guestimated to give you a guide. Enjoy!
