Low Sugar Avocado Blueberry Smoothie
NutriBullet sponsored this post. As always, I only share products I know and love, and all opinions are my own.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I love a good smoothie. I have an array of smoothie recipes on my blog, many of which I’ve made dozens of times. (One summer I ate this smoothie almost every single day.) But I do see one common pitfall: sugar. It’s often hard to find recipes for lower sugar smoothies.
I’m all for fruity smoothies and I know that a lot of the sugar in smoothies is naturally occurring, but smoothies can easily contain over 80g of sugar. Yes, 80g. And while fruit is good for you, there can be too much of a good thing, so I wanted to share a lower sugar smoothie option with you. This avocado blueberry smoothie has just 16g of sugar but it’s still smooth, creamy, and delicious.
Smoothie portion control
Portion control can be tricky when making smoothies: you throw in a little of this, a little of that, and things can add up quickly. (It’s not just me, right?) You’ve probably heard of NutriBullet, and you know they can blend up your favorite ingredients to make delicious soups, smoothies, and sauces in minutes, but the new NutriBullet is pretty impressive. Oh yeah, and it’s perfect for low sugar smoothies!
Alright, let’s blend this low sugar smoothie!Print
This low sugar avocado blueberry smoothie is creamy and delicious!
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup ice cubes
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup chopped frozen cauliflower
- 1/4 avocado (about 3 tablespoons)
- 1 tablespoon hemp seeds or chia seeds
- Add all the ingredients to your NutriBullet or blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour it into a glass or a bowl and sprinkle with extra chia seeds, if you like!
If you don’t have a high powered nutrition extractor like the NutriBullet, be sure to use riced frozen cauliflower as it’s easier to blend than whole florets so you can get a smoother consistency.
