The Smoothest Smoothie


Hello all! I know I have been gone for awhile. This is due to a wonderful and difficult diet I have started called the Whole 30. If you have not heard of it, you basically completely cut out sugar of any kind, alcohol, all grains including corn, legumes, peanuts, dairy, carageenan, MSG, sulfites, potatoes, and obviously desserts and junk foods. For 30 days straight without cheating at all. It has been tough but it will pay off in the end, I know. It is supposed to heal your body and digestive tract and stomach. In a sense, it resets your body and cleanses it. So, point is due to this strict diet, I have not been making any delicious desserts or any of that. 
But I did discover/make up a really good, healthy, no added sugar smoothie! It sustains you for a few hours too, so you can have it for breakfast or take it on the go! The avocado and spinach (I know it sounds kinda weird but its not) makes it extremely creamy and smooth. Seriously the best smoothie I've ever made. And I have made a lot of smoothies in my day. Feel free to use whatever type of fruit you like, and as many of different types as you wish! I only used frozen fruit because it is what I had on hand, but fresh would be even better. Try it out! I promise I wont wait so long to post again ;) xoxo

  1. Looks really good, Allie.
    I will have to try it.
    I think the avocado and spinach probably make it taste really good.

  2. This comes out looking kind of a weird color, probably due to the spinach added, but it tastes really good! I was pleasantly surprised. Felt healthy drinking it.
