Avocado Green Smoothie with Frozen Bananas and Parsley

[This post is part of my Green Smoothie series]

Avocado is a great ingredient to use in green smoothies. They add creaminess and offer an abundance of healthy fats, vitamin A, beta-carotene and more. The fats found in avocados also help your body absorb the parsley’s vitamins more easily.

I used frozen bananas for this smoothie. If you like smoothies, I recommend always having a bag of frozen banana pieces in the freezer. Bananas are a key ingredient for my green smoothies and having them readily available is very convenient. If you have overly ripe bananas that may go to waste, simply peel and quarter them and toss in the freezer.

Avocado, Banana and Parsley Smoothie Recipe

  • 1 avocado, halved, peeled & pitted
  • 2 frozen bananas (if using fresh, add a cup of ice)
  • 1 bunch parsley (use less if you’re new to green smoothies)
  • 3-4 cups coconut water, or water

    In a blender, combine avocado, frozen bananas, parsley and coconut water. Blend on high until smooth and creamy.

    Total Time: 10 minutes
    Yield: Makes 4 cups

      Avocado, is for me the creamiest fruit ever. I’ll be storing fruit chunks in my freezer from now on…Thanks for the advice!

        Actually, in the recipe I store the banana chunks in the freezer. Not sure about Avocados but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work.

      How long can we store avocado slices in the freezer?

        Hey Anna – I store avo in the freezer for up to 2 months – you can leave longer, but they do go a wee bit…. um…. dark brown…. if you are blending these, make sure you serve in dark glass.

      Thanks for sharing this smoothie. I’m drinking it right now, and it’s really nice! I had to use soy milk instead since I didn’t have coconut milk.
