This delicious Green Avocado Smoothie With Chia Seeds is one of my favourite breakfasts smoothie. I like making these smoothie for my family because they enjoy having it for breakfast. It is a tasty morning treat and very nutritional boost.
These healthy and filling breakfasts and this green avocado smoothie has been a favourite of mine since years.
Some of us know by now how healthy avocados are, though not many can spot a perfect avocado. It can be quite a gamble to cut an avocado open, but it doesn’t have to be. You can carefully apply pressure to your avocado with your fingertips. Perfectly ripe ones will yield ever so slightly. Unripe ones will be rock hard, if they are too soft, then you’re out of luck, and it has gone off most likely. Another nice and straightforward trick is to check the top of it. Just carefully remove the stem. If it is almost white underneath then you need to wait for a little longer; it should be green for perfect ripeness.
If you know how to pick the perfect avocado you might be stuck with another problem after making this smoothie. What to do with the other half? If your plan is to use it within a day, then you can just place the avocado with its cut side onto a small plate and store it in the fridge. If you are not planning on using the other half of the avocado anytime soon, then have a look at my post on how to freeze avocados for instant use and easy portioning.
As avocado is the best in this smoothie, you shouldn’t forget the other ingredients, especially the chia seeds. Since we all have been told before now that spinach contains a high amount of iron there is a little fun fact about chia seeds. They contain more than twice as much iron as spinach does and those little black seeds come with a huge variety of health benefits.
