This Apple Avocado Smoothie is rich and creamy because of the addition of banana, spinach, and ginger. It’s a great way to start the day.


1 cup plain, unsweetened almond milk

4 cups loosely packed spinach that’s about 2 large handfuls

1 medium avocado peeled and pitted

2 medium apples any kind you like, peel on, cored, and quartered (if not using a high-powered blender such as a Vitamix, cut into rough dice)

1 medium banana cut into chunks and frozen

2 teaspoons honey or maple syrup plus additional to taste

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger or 1/4-inch knob of fresh ginger (if not using a high-power blender, mince the ginger first; use less than 1/2 teaspoon if you’d like a more subtle taste. This smoothie has some zip!)

A small handful of ice cubes

Optional additions: chia seeds flaxseed, protein powder, almond butter, or other nut butter of choice


In the order listed, add the almond milk, spinach, avocado, apples, banana, honey, ginger, and ice to a high-powered blender.

Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness and spices as desired. Enjoy immediately.
