Dairy free blueberry, apple and almond smoothie

The blueberry, avocado and roasted almond combo make this healthy smoothie a nutritious no added sugar breakfast or a 5 minute anytime meal with a bit of zing!

SERVES: 2 PREP TIME: 6 mins COOK TIME: na mins

Ingredients

  • ½ cup roasted almonds, chopped
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ avocado
  • 5 medium fresh mint leaves
  • 200mls apple juice
  • 200mls water
  • Juice of ½ lime (optional)

Method

  1. Set aside two teaspoons of almonds.
  2. Blend the blueberries, avocado, remaining almonds, mint leaves, apple juice, water and optional lime juice until smooth. You may want to add more water depending on your preferred consistency.
  3. Pour into two glasses and garnish with the almonds you set aside earlier, a couple of blueberries cut in half and a stalk of mint as a ‘stirrer’.

Inspiration

  • For a nut free version simply omit the almonds
  • Adjust the quantity of water depending on the consistency you are after; if kept really thick this smoothie could be served as a fruit dessert with Almond crescents and/or Nut crème
