This avocado citrus smoothie recipe is a refreshing taste of summer you can make at any time. It’s filling and nutritious.

Remember my protest? This is what it was all about.

Snow coming down at the rate of 1-2 inches per hour seemed as good a time as any to make a pretty tropical tasting drink don’t you think? And since I didn’t have any spirulina on hand, this creamy avocado citrus smoothie came to be.

Doesn’t seeing ripe avocados and lemon slices immediately make you think of summer, flip flops, pools and warmth?

I tried to visualize that with each sip instead of the horror scene unfolding outside my window.

Avocado Smoothie

I’m not gonna lie, avocados always remind me of Mexican food too but that wasn’t really the image I was going for here.

Citrus Avocado Smoothie

For those skeptics on adding avocado to a smoothie, you can’t taste it.

It just gives it a really creamy, smooth texture while slipping in some healthy fats, fiber and of course a fun color.

Avocado Smoothie with Citrus

Our power is back, the snow is melting, life has returned to normal, but I’d still make this avocado smoothie again in a heartbeat.

Try cold avocado soup for another summer-inspired recipe. It’s got a gazpacho vibe but with a creamier consistency.

  1. The smoothie look SO creamy!!! I love avocado smoothies, but I never tried putting citrus fruits into them. I have to try this. Thanks for the recipe! :)

  2. Ooh delicious. I don’t remember if I’ve tried avocado in a smoothie. I think I’d like to try it with piña colada flavours.

  3. This looks so creamy and delicious! I don’t think I could drink a smoothie if it were snowing, though- hell, it’s 75 here and it almost seems too chilly for a smoothie!

  4. The smoothie looks delicious. I still have yet to make a smoothie with avocado. I think because I always dash salt on it after I cut it and it doesn’t make it in the blender. ;)

    Can I borrow a sliver of your weather, too? This high 80’s is just so last summer!

  5. Your smoothie looks and sounds great! I’m a big fan of putting a little (maybe 1/4) frozen or fresh avocado in my smoothies. It gives them the perfect creamy texture and I can’t even taste the avocado flavor.

    Boston also got a little snow, but thankfully most of it has melted. So bizarre for October!

  6. avocado in a smoothie sounds so intersting! i bet it makes the smoothie extra smooth and creamy..yum!

  7. Delicious! My aunt is from Brazil (for the most part, avocado is treated as sweet rather than savory there) and she introduced me to avocado milkshakes: avocado, milk, sugar, ice. Sublime.
