Festive Red and Green Smoothie Puddings

Festive Green Smoothie Puddings-3

Have you ever put an avocado in a smoothie before? If not, you’re missing out! Imagine pudding without the sugar, dairy or eggs that is actually good for you. Plus, smoothies are way better when you can eat them with a spoon. I’ve made variations of the above smoothies for breakfast for the last few weeks and they are too good not to share!

They are super simpleĀ  to make (throw everything in a blender) and a great way to get eat healthy this Christmas while still feeling a little bit decadent! Feel free to adjust what you put in it or double the recipe to make two servings – it’s all about creative license!

Festive Green Smoothie Puddings-1

“Green” Christmas Smoothie

1/2 frozen banana, cut into chunks
1/2 pear, cut into chunks
1 mandarin orange
1/2 large avocado
1 – 2 handfuls of spinach
Scoop of Protein Powder (optional)
Splash of orange juice

Festive Green Smoothie Puddings-2

“Red” Christmas Smoothie

1/2 frozen banana, cut into chunks
1/2 pear, cut into chunks
10 – 20 fresh cranberries
1/2 large cooked beet (if you don’t have any, use any red fruit like cherries, raspberries, etc. but the colour won’t be as vivid)
2 pieces honey-candied ginger (or a slice of fresh ginger root and a small squeeze of honey)
Small handful of spinach
1/2 avocado
1 squirt of lemon juice
Splash of orange juice

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients except avocado in a single serve (or regular blender) and blend until smooth. Add avocado and blend until mixed. (If you have a high-powered blender, add everything at once).
  2. Pour into a glass and eat with a spoon.
  3. Enjoy!
