Blueberry - Avocado (or banana)Breakfast Smoothie (a la Ice cream special)

Here is the big reveal! Going by the looks of it not many people were interested in knowing. But in the hopes there are a few silent one interested in knowing how to enjoy a perfect ice cream like meal in the morning I am typing up this post. This smoothie usually sustains me through afternoon better than any carbohydrate filled breakfast has ever done.

I got a big bag of frozen blue berries at Costco and I crave for this smoothie every single morning. If there is time amid all the rush to get the kids out of the door in the morning they get a share too else it is all for me. Of course it is great afternoon back from school snack and filling enough to last through to dinner time.

Blueberry Avocado Smoothie
I have used Avocados which is my favorite or bananas and cold milk besides the blueberries. For a vegan version almond milk or just plain water will work. The only requirement is whatever liquid you use has to be cold like milk in the fridge cold. The blueberries have to be frozen if you want a thicker smoothie and frozen bananas well makes everything taste good.

Most days just this smoothie by itself is big enough for a breakfast. Sprinkle some granola on top for a change or more fresh fruits.

Blueberry Avocado (or banana) Breakfast Smoothie
Preparation Time:15 minutes
Serving Size:1
  1. 1/2 Avocado or 1 banana (cut and freeze if preferred) or 1/4 Avocado + 1/2 banana
  2. 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  3. 1/2 cup of milk (or 1/4 cup water)
  4. 1 tsp or less of raw sugar or honey (optional)
  5. Take all the ingredients in a blender and blend together and pour out and enjoy.


  1. After school snack is a big thing on my mind these days. the 5th grader is hungry when she gets back and needs something substantial. Tearing my hair most days to decide what to have for her as it has to be pre-made.
    I make smoothies but if you say this is filling, I am going to make this more frequent and maybe add the avocado as it probably will make it more filling

    1. DD does sports and is ready to eat the pantry. Comes home very hungry. This most certainly fills her up. Actually just east the Avocado is filling on it's own. Another idea for you if she likes Avocado, toast bread slices with some butter, cut up the Avocado, sprinkle with some salt, pepper and tiny bit of lemon juices. Mine love that too.

      But nothing compares to this sweet ice cream like smoothie though.

  2. In a million years I would not have guessed avocado!! That's genius, ISG. Also like the banana-blueberry idea. When this kitchen space is finally (sadly) empty of the garden's bounty, I would like to keep the blender out and handy to make something like this.

  3. I hardly ever make smoothie, i am in love with teh color of this smoothie looks so good.

  4. Wow, such a beautiful smoothie to kick start a day..Love that beautiful colour.
