Creamy Avocado Protein Smoothie

I have been on a protein smoothie kick and  keep experminting adding or removing ingredients because I am counting calories.  So this recipe you can have to two ways, it’s all up to you if you are counting calories or not. 

Ingredients: 

1 cup Vanilla Almond Coconut Milk

2 tbls Dannon Vanilla Greek yogurt ( your choice ) 

1 scoop Whey vanilla protein 

1 avocado 

1 tbls chia seeds 

1/3 cup fresh pineapple 

14 fresh spinach leaves 

2-3 ice cubes

1/3 cups almonds ( optional ) 

1/3 cup dried cranberries ( optional ) 

Instructions: 

Add milk, yogurt, protein, spinach, chia seeds, pineapple and then the avocado and ice cubes. Blend until it’s the thickness that you desire. Once blended you can add the smoothie to a room temperature mug or a frozen mug. ( That is what I like best ) 

If you are counting calories this will cost you 319 calories if you do not add the nuts and cranberries. If you add the nuts and cranberries it will cost you 626 calories

I hope you enjoy as much as I do.
