This vegan avocado "weight loss" smoothie is a simple and healthy recipe perfect to enjoy on-the-go when you don’t have time to eat breakfast at home. A weight loss smoothie recipe should remove added sugars and unhealthy fats, and provide lots of fibres to help keep your gut healthy and curb hunger. Our smoothie does all of this!

Most smoothies recipes include banana as a thickener, but here we have replaced it with delicious and creamy avocado. Other tasty alternatives to bananas you can try are yogurt or soaked chia seeds.

We also used bran, chia seeds, and spinach. Adding spinach in a smoothie is an easy way to eat more greens and get all their benefits.

Just one glass provides you with almost 80% of your daily fibre intake and with so many other benefits you wouldn't believe it!

In fact, each ingredient bursts with nutrients and health-promoting properties. For example:

  • Avocado and almond butter are a source of unsaturated fatty acids, fibres, and antioxidants.

  • Wheat bran is a concentrate of fibres which improve your gut health and help to lower bad cholesterol.

  • Baobab is a true superfood with more iron than red meat and more vitamin C than orange.

  • Chia seeds provide lots of calcium and omega-3.
