Clean Eating: Avocado Ice Cream Smoothie

Avocado Ice Cream Smoothie

Eating healthy fats is essential to having balanced hormones, healthy skin, shiny hair and adrenal energy. If you’re experiencing fatigue, imbalance or sugar cravings – it’s possible that you need to add more fat into your diet.

Stress and other emotional triggers can cause intense hunger cravings for sugar rich foods like ice cream, so finding healthful ways to satiate hungry and alleviate cravings is important if you truly want to sustain a clean diet. This recipe is delicious, rich in healthy fats and calories to help give you the fuel you need to sustain yourself and possibly even grab a workout.

This is a small batch recipe that you can make in your blender, however you can double or triple the recipe if you want and throw it in your ice cream maker if you’ve got one for even cooler results (pun intended 😉 There is sugar in this recipe from the maple syrup or honey, so be mindful not to eat too much.

Serves 2-3

1 avocado
1/3 cup cashews
1-2 tsp. vanilla extract or vanilla bean powder
1/3 cup lime juice, fresh squeezed
5 tbsp. maple syrup or honey
1.5 cups almond, coconut or hemp milk

How to: Blend on high in your blender until smooth. You can pop in the freezer for an hour or two if you like, or enjoy right away for a smoothie rather than ice cream.
