Avocado and Lime Green Smoothie

This divinely refreshing smoothie is made creamy by the avocado and tangy from the lime, rich in nutrients, fibre, protein, and healthy fats with the sweet flavour of mint.

Serves 2

1 avocado peeled and de-stoned
1 sprig of mint, washed
one lime, peeled
1 apple, core removed
a handful of spinach
1 orange, peeled
1 kiwi fruit, peeled
2 tbsp hemp seed protein powder or flour (see note)
1 tbsp chia seeds and extra for decoration (optional)
2 tsp honey (use agave nectar, a few drops of stevia or 4 dates for vegan option)
a handful of ice
2 cups of water

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and delicious! Serve at once...

If you can't find or afford hemp protein powder, I have found using hemp flour works just as well. It is a little lower in protein and higher in fibre, but just as good, and at less than 1/4 of the price of the protein you can't go wrong!


  1. Sounds really tasty and refreshing! I can't eat raw bananas so love coming across banana-free smoothies :-)

  2. Hey Aimee, thanks for your comment! I am sorry to hear that you can't eat raw bananas.. avocado is a great substitute for bananas as they are creamy and delicious:) Enjoy!
