Blueberry Avocado Smoothie

Start your morning off with a delicious, nutrient-packed smoothie! Avocado provides a uniquely silky smooth texture to this smoothie without an overbearing taste. Plus, avocados are great to kick off the day since they’re high in potassium, fiber and healthy fat.

Make-Ahead Tip: Freeze smoothie packs to quickly add to your blender. Just place all ingredients except milk (or liquid of choice) into a freezer-safe ziptop bag and freeze. When ready to blend, just add to blender with liquid and blend!
