Every single bite of food and beverage that we put into our bodies matters. It’s something that’s easy for me to forget in a world with so many options. It’s just so important to remember that even the small choices we make for the better can have a huge impact on our health and wellness.
For instance, I love having a breakfast smoothie that is loaded with whole foods and protein.
This banana avocado smoothie totally hits the spot, and it gets an extra boost of calcium and protein thanks to the cup of fairlife ultra-filtered milk in the recipe.
Banana Avocado Smoothie Recipe
fairlife has half the sugar compared to ordinary milk and fairlife chocolate milk has half the sugars of ordinary chocolate milk. With 13g of protein compared to ordinary milk’s 8g, 30% more calcium and half the sugar of ordinary milk, fairlife ultra-filtered milk just makes sense for my family.
We’ve been looking for ways to cut back on sugar, and changing our milk was just a smart choices. I’ve also been doing my best to prepare meals for my family using more real foods including fresh fruit, vegetables, lean meat and high-quality dairy products like fairlife.
I probably couldn’t get one of my kids to eat an avocado on its own, but this yummy smoothie transforms plain avocado into something sweeter and more satisfying.
Avocados are one of my favorite ingredients to use in my smoothies these days because they add such a wonderful creaminess.
You’ll definitely want to go for a super-ripe banana in this smoothie recipe. In fact, if you can find a very ripe banana you can cut back on the amount of honey you use in the recipe!
I love the extra protein that my family can get by drinking fairlife ultra-filtered milk. With lots of protein, vitamins and delicious taste, fairlife powers brains, bones and muscles for your active life. My kids literally never stop moving so I know that they need plenty of protein to keep going.
fairlife is also a great way for kids to get protein as part of a balanced breakfast before school to help them stay focused and energized at school all day.
I think I’ve probably mentioned before that my husband has a bit of a sensitivity to lactose, which is another reason we’re loving this ultra-filtered milk—it’s lactose free!
I feel so good about having this thick and creamy banana avocado smoothie for breakfast, and I love to see my kids consuming such delicious and nutritious fair.
You’ll defintely want to give this smoothie a whirl if you haven’t tried it!
