1/2 avocado + 1 to 1.5 cups of cold water
2 tbsp. wheat germ *(optional)
1 to 2 handfuls baby spinach
agave to taste
protein powder * (optional)
a few ice cubes
Blend well. I have a crappy old blender, so it takes a while...
* I know many people on this site are high raw/gluten free/soy free/vegan. So some ingredients are optional. I add the wheat germ for the vitamin E and Folic acid benefits and a nutty taste, although I suppose ground nuts could be used instead. I use Life's Basics protein powder. It is a pea, hemp, rice and chia seed blend (vegan and gluten free, but not raw) and it has a green phyto nutrient blend in it too.
This is my favorite "go to" smoothie for high calorie/high nutrients after a workout for before going to school.
