My mother in law shared the recipe for this creamy green smoothie and I love it! The texture is so thick and smooth thanks to the avocado and you’re still getting in plenty of greens!

I’d never done the avocado-in-a-smoothie thing but it’s further proof that avocado makes everything more delicious. I couldn’t believe how creamy and filling it was! This kept me full through the 20,000+ steps we walked in Washington D.C. Yes, 20K steps!
