Hi Beverly, Here’s the Dr. Oz Blueberry Avocado Breakfast Smoothie recipe you requested.  It’s super healthy with all the antioxidants in the blueberries and the healthy fats from the avocado!  Enjoy!

Ingredients

Makes 3 servings

  • 1 cup frozen wild blueberries
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 5 oz low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 of a lime’s zest and juice
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar (I use Coconut Secret)
  • 2 tbsp almond paste
  • 5 oz plain low-fat yogurt
  • 2 oz low-fat milk

Garnish: crushed pink peppercorns and chopped mint

Directions

Cut avocado into halves and remove pit. Spoon avocado meat from the skin and put it into a blender.

Purée yogurt, lime zest and juice and 2 tbsp of brown sugar. Pour into 3 glasses.

Purée almond paste, remaining sugar, yogurt and wild blueberries and blend until smooth.

Slowly add Wild Blueberry mixture to the glasses so the layers are distinct. Garnish with pink peppercorns and mint. Serve with a stirring stick.

Don’t get your panties in a crinkle. Somebody requested this Dr. Oz recipe and I simply provided it. There are many different schools of thought on what a “green smoothie” is, however, keep in mind Dr. Oz labeled this a Blueberry Avocado Smoothie, not a green smoothie. If you don’t like dairy products (and I stay away from them most of the time too), then don’t drink this smoothie, or simply alter it to your tastes. This blog is mostly about helping people find a way of clean eating that suits them, rather than one specific modality of eating.

Smiles,
Lesli

I am not one for milk or sugar. I would substitute ‘Raw’ coconut water, which is the only coconut water I’ll touch. I would add coconut syrup or maple syrup for the sugar.
Personally I love pureed avacado soup. So, this is something I might try.
Thanks for sharing.
