A strawberry smoothie packed with both macro and micronutrients. The perfect way to start your day.
I’ve never been a huge fan of fruit. A few berries here or there I could handle, but I’ve never been a full on fruit connoisseur.
Even so, a sweet, ripe strawberry just hits the spot sometimes.
As a special treat I decided to create a strawberry avocado smoothie bowl. In a bowl because I’m not really a big smoothie fan in the first place, and eating it in a bowl makes it feel less smoothie like to me.
The avocado takes the place of the traditional banana in smoothies to give it a little foundation. Strawberries take center stage on the flavor in this recipe. I prefer a sweetener in this smoothie because it brings out the flavor of the strawberries even more.
The toppings are adjustable, obviously. You can decide what to leave in or take out, as well as if you want to adjust the amounts. I highly recommend keeping the cacao nibs, though. The hint of chocolate they offer makes me think of chocolate covered strawberries.
I’ll be honest with you. If you’re counting actual carbs rather than net carbs, this probably isn’t the recipe for you. Based on the ingredients I used (I always recommend calculating for what you are using) this recipe has 17 actual carbs, but only 7 net carbs. The net carbs work for me because this dish is filling and can last me for several hours.

Add avocado, strawberries, cream, and sweetener to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour smoothie in a bowl and top with remaining ingredients.
If your smoothie is too thick for the blender you may need to add extra liquid to thin it a bit. More cream, almond milk, coconut milk, or water are all options, just make sure to adjust the nutrition information to reflect the recipe changes.
