This Avocado Smoothie (Sinh To Bo) recipe is my spin on the Vietnamese Avocado Milkshake. To make the smoothie healthier, I omit the condensed milk, which is fatty and sugary, and the whole milk, more fat. Instead, I use Greek yogurt with honey or fruit and add refreshing coconut water. Greek yogurt is thick and delicious and balances the avocado flavor nicely. I use whatever yogurt I have on hand and find that most yogurts with fruit work well. If you like your smoothies on the sweet side, feel free to add your choice of sweetener: sugar, Splenda, honey, agave nectar, etc. For me, the yogurt and coconut water add plenty of sweetness.
This delicious Avocado Smoothie recipe is so refreshing and super easy to make. Avocados are widely popular for their health benefits as good fats and powerful antioxidants and so we see them everywhere–as a spread or dip, in drinks, soups and salads. If you’ve never dreamed of enjoying avocados in smoothies, you are in for an amazing treat! Because of their creamy consistency and buttery flavor, avocados are the perfect fruit to add into smoothies.
I love having this Avocado Smoothie after a grueling workout. It’s refreshing and cools me down instantly. Because it’s nice and thick, the Avocado Smoothie is really satisfying. The best part is, it’s good for you! Enjoy!
