What Can I Use to Sweeten My Fruit Smoothie Recipe?

Smoothie sweeteners can be anything from fruit juice to honey, depending on your preferences. The simpler the sweetener, the healthier the smoothie. Even coconut water has some natural sweetness to it.

Of course, go light on the sweetener to really get the flavor of this avocado smoothie. In addition to a sweetener, include a little vanilla extract, or some unsweetened cocoa powder or cinnamon. These are great ways to perk up your morning smoothie recipe!

Freezing Avocado Smoothie

Can You Prepare Avocado Smoothies the Night Before?

Are you busy in the morning? Life is chaotic and mornings are hectic. You can still enjoy avocado smoothies for breakfast, even if you are in a hurry. Make your smoothie the night before! Just blend it in the blender, adding a few tablespoons of citrus to your smoothie recipe. You can use lemon, lime, orange, etc. Then pour the smoothie into freezer-safe Mason jars, and freeze. The combination of acid and freezing will stop avocado smoothies from browning.

To thaw your smoothie, leave it in the freezer overnight or on the counter for a few hours. Then, just stir and enjoy! Freezing avocado smoothies helps maintain their fresh nutrients without letting it get brown and gross looking. If you are passionate about meal planning, freezing smoothies makes for an healthy breakfast idea.
