Blackberry Avocado Mango Protein Smoothie
I am loving all the beautiful produce at the market. Creating a new smoothie recipe everyday has been so much fun! Why do I love smoothies? They are one of the easiest ways I know of to get in multiple servings of fruits and vegetables in just one sitting. Smoothies only take a few minutes to make too, so not only is it an easy way to get in a bunch of nutrients, they are also to make!
I know that sometimes we get into a rut with our smoothies, that’s why I like to try all sorts of combinations and share the successful flavors with you all! You can see 100+ smoothie recipes HERE in fact. Those should keep you going for some time 😉
In my smoothies, I like to have at least 2 veggies to go along with the yummy fruits. Too many fruits = too many sugars. You will also see cinnamon, turmeric, and chia seeds in most of my smoothies, all three are great for you and do very little to change the flavor of your smoothie. So why not add them in?!
I do like adding some for of protein to my smoothies too, whether it be a powder or lowfat Greek yogurt, I feel like it keeps me fuller longer. Which means I stay away from the snacks longer.
The blackberries in this smoothie give it a beautiful deep color, not to mention a great flavor. The avocado makes it extra creamy, and the mango adds a yummy twist.
Here are some other reasons I added in Blackberries and Avocado into this delicious protein smoothie:
Blackberries – They are high in antioxidants and Vitamin C, not to mention they taste great and give your smoothie that rich beautiful color.
Avocados – Besides being loaded with the “good fat”, they help heart health, lower cholesterol and lower triglycerides. Plus, they make your smoothie extra creamy 🙂

I used Cabot Whey Protein in this smoothie, I’m sure you are all familiar with Cabot Cheese, but did you know they had a Whey Protein Powder as well? I didn’t until just recently, in fact, the folks at Cabot were nice enough to send it to me when I was getting ready for the Gasparilla Race here in Tampa.
Protein smoothies are great for breakfast, or even lunch, but they also great after a good workout. They give your body and muscles the nutrients they need to keep you going. Cabot Whey Protein Powder is unflavored, which I like because that means I can add it to smoothies, healthy snacks, and more and it won’t change the flavor.
