Avocado Smoothie Recipe

Avocado Smoothie Recipe with pineapple

With just 5 simple ingredients, this nutrient-packed avocado smoothie recipe blends up in minutes for a satisfying breakfast or hearty snack.

Now, the first thing you’ll taste is the pineapple— one of my favorite natural sweeteners. I love how refreshing pineapple is to any recipe. It’s also one of the more affordable fruits (and easy it is to find in the frozen food section). So even though it’s technically an avocado-holic smoothie, it tastes more like a tropical paradise than a blended avocado.

I often drink this smoothie as my lunch when I’m glued to my laptop and not moving very much. I like that it’s not heavy on the calories, yet it’s quite filling due to the fiber, healthy fats and proteins. This avocado smoothie recipe actually keeps me full for hours, which is impressive!

Health Benefits of an Avocado Smoothie

To make this avocado smoothie recipe, all you need are 5 plant-based ingredients. Each of them has wonderful health benefits as well as foodie reasons. Let me explain…

Avocado

Packed with vitamin E and healthy fats like omega 3’s, avocado is great for the skin and digestive system. It also makes a smoothie extra creamy and decadent. The health benefits of avocado are truly incredible.

Pineapple

This tropical fruit is loaded with immune-boosting vitamin C, and also contains the digestive enzyme bromelain, which aids digestion and decreases inflammation. Pineapple is also a great naturally sweetener because it’s loaded with fiber, which helps slow down the absorption of the sugar into your body.

Spinach

Iron helps transport oxygen around the body and aids in energy production. If you’re feeling tired and low-energy, you may need to add more iron to your diet. I love adding spinach to my smoothies to increase my intake of calcium, iron and fiber.

Cashews

Adding just a few raw cashews to this smoothie makes it thicker, adds more protein and a nutty foundation, which I love.

Cashew milk

Cashew milk acts as a mild base with additional protein to nourish your body. Feel free to swap with almond milk or even water if you don’t have cashew milk on hand (or want to spend the extra money on it).

This banana-free smoothie is naturally sugar free, vegan and delightfully creamy and delicious. Spinach, pineapple, cashew milk, and avocado nourish your body and keep you full and energized for hours.

Fresh ingredients to blend in a healthy smoothie

How to make avocado smoothie recipe

To make this avocado smoothie, you’re gonna need to shop for the 5 ingredients mentioned above. I recommend getting frozen pineapple to save you time cutting and freezing it. Then get out your blender (I prefer a high speed blender to remove all chunks). Blend the spinach, cashews and cashew milk until well blended. Add the remaining ingredients and blend again until smooth.

Allergic to tree nuts?

Although we love the pairing of nutty cashew milk and tropical pineapple, you can easily swap out the cashew milk for an equal amount of oat milk. If you or a family member has a tree nut allergy. You can also use a tablespoon of organic flaxseed in place of the cashews if you want to still get the healthy fat boost.

    I tried the Avacodo smoothie today, although I had to substitute almond milk as I didn’t have any cashew milk! It’s a great smoothie, altho one cup of pineapple seems to give it a weird texture(from the pineapple) but I love the taste;)

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Marie, you could always use less pineapple if you weren’t keen on the texture. Did you use fresh or frozen? If you used fresh, maybe frozen will help with the texture?

  3. Jennifer A. says:

    Smooth, creamy and not overly sweet! The pineapple adds a nice tropical flair.

  4. HELEN says:

    I tried this smoothie using almond milk as I didn’t have any cashew milk on hand. This is an outta this world smoothie. The blend was smooth with just the right amount of sweetness. This will surely be added to my smoothie arsenal. It rocks, thanks SGS!

  5. Jennifer says:

    Tried the Avocado Smoothie yesterday. I love cashew milk, cashews and avocados so I was excited to try this new smoothie recipe from Simple Green Smoothies. The pineapple gave it the sweetness and the added spinach the green hue. Delicious and smooth! I love receiving new smoothie recipes weekly! They never disappoint!!
    Thanks SGS!!

  6. Dora Suarez says:

    Simply delicious. Tastes like I should be by the beach. I used almond/coconut milk instead of cashew milk and all other ingredients as noted + Vanilla Flavored Protein. This is without a doubt a new FAVE, this should be a recipe in a future green smoothie challenge. OMG crazy good, now I want to buy or make some cashew milk.

  7. Susan Turner says:

    I forgot to leave my star ratings! This was a 5 in my book— I love that it was balanced with sugars, fats and protein. (And still tasted amazing!!!!)

  8. Susan Turner says:

    This looks more like a cocktail than a smoothie— I LOOOOVE it!!!! I didn’t have cashew milk on me, so I used almond milk and I thought it was so dang good (and I love that it wasn’t sickly sweet). Another win in my book!

  9. Erim says:

    I’m lovin’ these low sugar recipes, keep them coming!

  10. Barbara says:

    This recipe came at the perfect time, I just bought cashew milk for another recipe and am glad I had another use for it. As always, this recipe was delicious. My daughter and I love trying new smoothie recipes together.

  11. Karen says:

    Hi Jen! Just made this smoothie. I had everything in the house except for cashew milk, so I just used my oatmilk. Delicious! There’s nothing like a nice cold breakfast when it’s 112° in Mesa, AZ!

  12. Anita says:

    Needed something different today and this smoothie did not disappoint. Smooth and creamy.

  13. Teresa McClennen says:

    I absolutely loved this smoothie! I was hesitant about not adding a banana but this was absolutely delightful! I am definitely going to add this one to my favorites! Thanks so much for sharing this amazing recipe!
