- 1 avocado, pitted and skinned

Step 1: Place all of the ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

We have had smoothie fever around here lately. The best part of smoothie season is if you do not feel like taking the time to make a delicious dessert, you can make a dessert smoothie in half the time and it hits that sweet spot.
I was really feeling like some key lime pie, but I was really not feeling like making one. And THIS happened. I love using the Bone Broth Power protein (vanilla flavor) in this but any high quality vanilla flavored protein or unsweetened protein powder will work.
Add more/less stevia depending on how sweet you like it. You can also add more leafy greens if you really want to pack a punch.
Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a fantastic recipe for a breakfast smoothie or an after school smoothie for the kids. You have great fats with the coconut milk and the avocado. You have loads of antioxidant phytonutrients in the spinach and lime. You have great flavor in the stevia, bone broth protein and vanilla extract.
I changed Megan’s original recipe and took out the sugar sources (raw honey and a banana) and added the super tasty banana bone broth protein (which is flavored with monk fruit and stevia) and a little more avocado (1 full instead of 1/2). This significantly reduced the carb count and made this a low-carb, ketogenic recipe that helps that is loaded with collagen protein for the gut, joints and skin.
Soaking the cashews is advantageous as it helps to remove the phytic acids and enzyme inhibitors that block nutrient absorption. Try this great smoothie out and let us know how you enjoyed it!
