Avokaspi Green Smoothie Recipe

Yup, I drank this. So did my family!
Avokaspi has a nice little ring to it. But basically, it's avocado, kale and spinach condensed into one cute little word. I made this smoothie and thought it was pretty tasty. My husband couldn't quite pin the flavor on anything, until I told him what was in it. It's a fun little game we like to play in the morning. This smoothie had a nice thickness to it, which somedays I prefer especially if I had a good run beforehand and need a little substance. You know I love green smoothies, and as I have said many times it's pretty hard to mess them up! In any case, here's the recipe. Hope you enjoy!

1 c. chopped kale (ribs removed)
1 c. spinach
1/4 avocado
1/4 c. greek yogurt, plain-nonfat
1/4 c. blueberries
1/2 banana
1 tbsp. local honey
2 dashes cinnamon
1 stevia packet
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. water
1 c. crushed ice (optional)

Kale blends better if its chopped up beforehand. Don't forget to remove the tough ribs. Water is essential in getting your blender/magic bullet moving. Many times, I add coconut milk to my smoothies but did not this time since I added Greek yogurt. You can choose to sweeten to taste with maple syrup, ripe banana or other sweetener if you don't have any honey or stevia on hand.

Have a great day!


  1. Yum...I will definitely try your recipe. It's been so hot we're having smoothies for breakfast and dinner cuz I don't want to cook!

    1. Recipes for smoothies are very subjective. Really you can modify them in any way you like and you really can't ruin them!

  2. Okay, here I was reading 'Avokaspi' and thinking, "I wonder what kind of vegetable that is?" LOL!!! :> And after reading what it was, I flashed back to a FB or Instagram note from you one it. Silly me. But, I'm glad I swung by and have the recipe now. It looks delish. And I've never tried avocado in a smoothie before! :>

  3. Whenever I make smoothies with avocado they are really filling! Let me know what you think.
