Blueberries, spinach, avocado, ginger, hemp seeds…this Avocado Ginger Shakeology smoothie has so many good things in it! Together the combination is surprisingly delicious.
Blueberries and spinach pack antioxidants and help you get your daily dose of fruit and vegetables. A full serving of avocado gives it healthy fats that will help this satisfying shake keep you feeling full for hours. For those who aren’t so sure about putting avocado (or spinach!) in a smoothie—trust us—you won’t taste it, and it adds luxurious creaminess. (Need to ripen an avocado quickly for your shake? Here’s how.)
Hemp seeds are an ingredient you may not have tried, but definitely should! We don’t have room here to go into all of the reasons why hemp seeds are good for you, but if you want to know why these nutrition powerhouses should be part of your smoothie routine, read this article on the nutritional benefits of hemp. These tiny, hulled seeds are available in many grocery and health food stores. If you can’t find them, or you prefer to use something else, sunflower seeds, raw pumpkin seeds, or ground flax are great substitutes.
