The Ultimate Green Avocado Smoothie! Made with avocado, banana, kale, almond milk, and protein powder (optional). Top with pistachios and cacao chips for a great way to start the day! This green avocado smoothie is vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free.
My husband and I typically start our days off in a hurry. While we love our slower mornings on the weekends (hello, yummy Healthy Sweet Potato Pancakes), our weekday mornings are a sprint to feed the baby, get him changed, get ourselves ready, and send the hubs off to work while I get ready to work from home. With such a busy start to the day, a quick and easy breakfast recipe is completely essential!
This green avocado smoothie recipe is one of our favorites for making in advance and freezing for busy mornings (more on that below). Just make a big batch of the recipe, pour into mason jars, and keep frozen to take with you during the week. It’s a lifesaver!

Benefits of green smoothies
Smoothies are always a great idea for a quick breakfast! They’re delicious, easy to make, and loaded with nutrition. Green smoothies are especially good for you since they’re filled with dark leafy greens, such as kale and spinach. They’re full of healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants!
How to make a green avocado smoothie
Combine avocado, kale, almond milk, and a banana in the blender. Add in vanilla protein powder to make the smoothie even creamier!
My favorite protein powder for this green avocado smoothie recipe is the Arbonne Vanilla Protein Powder. I love that it’s vegan, plant-based, gluten-free, and that it doesn’t use fake sweetener. Oh, and it actually tastes AMAZING! You can purchase it HERE.
What fruits to add to an avocado smoothie
Banana pairs wonderfully with avocado in a smoothie. Other great fruit options are apple, orange, pineapple, mango, or blueberries!
Make this Ultimate Green Avocado Smoothie the night before
This green avocado smoothie is perfect for making ahead and freezing! Simply blend the ingredients together, pour into mason jars, cover with lids, and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Once you’re ready to drink the smoothie, either thaw it out in the refrigerator for two hours (or overnight) or heat it up in the microwave for about 1 minute.
