The avocado makes this smoothie almost more rich in texture than a milkshake. What a healthy and satisfying breakfast!

The flavour and smoothness are very nice. The taste is clean and fresh. Mine was far too thick to drink. It came out like pudding. I added more almond milk 1/4 cup at a time until I'd almost quadrupled the amount written just to get it to a drinkable consistency. Avocado in a smoothie is a very nice addition in both taste and creaminess though. So thumbs up over here. Thank you fordmarie for your recipe. Read More

This was good but it needs a lot more almond milk. I used 1 1/2 cups of the unsweetened vanilla almond kind. It was good but definitely a change from the fruity flavors I'm used to. I had no issues with the smell as noted by other reviewers. Read More

The flavor is very good. And it is really healthy. This drink would have 5 stars if the smell wasn't so bad. Read More

The only changes I made was I didn't freeze the banana (you don't need to) and I added 1 1/2 cups of almond milk. Yum. If you use the 1/4 cup of almond milk it is way too thick. You can also add only 1 cup of the milk and it is still good just a little thicker. Also you don't have to pay attention to the size of the avocado just use any avocado that's ripe. This is delicious!!!! I have one every day now. Read More

Was delicious! I added more milk and substituted some blueberries for the banana. Excellent way to include more spinach in your diet. Two thumbs up. Read More

I absolutely loved this smoothie! I changed the mil ratio from 1/4 C milk to 1 1/4 C milk based on some of the other reviews. I also substituted plain unsweetened almond milk since I have dairy issues. The texture is creamy just like a milkshake and I love the fact that I already had almost all of the ingredients in my kitchen. Two thumbs up from me! Read More

I definitely agree that it needs about 1.5 cups of almond milk. Other than that it was great! Loved the addition of cinnamon! Read More
