Chocolate Avocado Coconut Smoothie

We have all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I wholeheartedly agree! The first thing you eat in the morning is what matters the most. I try to enjoy a hearty breakfast whether that be free-range eggs with loads of leafy greens or something a little on the sweeter side that will not spike insulin levels. I would call this smoothie something along the lines of "lean, green, smoothie machine" or something BUT it is actually a pretty hearty smoothie.


This Avocado Coconut Smoothie is:

  • Paleo

  • Gluten-free

  • Dairy-free

It is also packed with tons of healthy fats, micronutrients, and flavor! You can adjust the ingredients however you like but this is my take on a healthy green smoothie! It has the perfect balance of all three macronutrients!
