Avocados make this dish especially creamy and the healthful fats will help keep you full until lunch. Recipe courtesy of Jackie Newgent, RDN.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 2

  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 portion Ripe Banana
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Baby Spinach
  • 8 leaf fresh mint leaves
  • 1 1/2 tsp Pure Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup raw sliced almonds
  • 1 tsp lemon zest

DIRECTIONS

1 Add the avocado, banana, almond milk, spinach, 2 tablespoons of the mint, and the lemon juice to a blender. Cover and puree until velvety smooth, about 2 minutes.
2 Pour into two bowls. Cover well and chill overnight—or enjoy immediately. (Hint: If you prepare in advance, first cover the smoothie bowl with a piece of unbleached parchment paper directly onto the smoothie to help prevent normal browning.)
3 When ready to eat, sprinkle with the almonds (preferably toasted), remaining 1 tablespoon mint, and lemon zest.
