If you like your smoothies on the creamier side, adding avocados to the mix will get you there. Avocado smoothies are impossible to resist because they’re both healthy and delicious. Here are three things you should keep in mind when making them.

Ingredients to Avoid

Avocados may be healthy, but they’re also high in fat and calories. That’s why you should use them in moderation and avoid mixing them up with other fatty add-ins, such as dairy milk and nut butters. After all, their main purpose is to make your smoothies extra-creamy, and avocados are already doing that.

Flavor Combo

You now know which ingredients don’t belong inside your avocado smoothies, but which ones do? It all comes down to personal preference and you can experiment with different flavors as much as you want. Avocados don’t have a distinct taste, so it’s best to add some fruits to the mix for sweetness, but making a green smoothie is also an option.

Extra Sweetness

Speaking of making your avocado smoothies, a single banana is usually all it takes, but it’s not always enough. If you’re not happy with your smoothie’s taste, using natural sweeteners, such as honey and maple syrup is always an option.
