Prebiotic Avocado Date Smoothie

Guest blog and recipe by Annie Siegfried @annie_siegfried.

In today's fast-paced world, finding a nutritious yet convenient breakfast option can be a challenge. Combining the goodness of spinach, avocados, dates, cashew butter, Manuka honey, and Just Thrive PREbiotic, this avocado date smoothie offers a delicious and energizing start to your morning routine. It is a powerhouse blend packed with essential nutrients to kickstart your day.

  1. Spinach serves as the green base for this smoothie, providing a wealth of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Rich in iron, calcium, and vitamin K, spinach promotes bone health and supports overall immunity. Its high fiber content aids digestion and helps regulate blood sugar levels, keeping you feeling full and satisfied.
  2. Avocados not only add a luxurious texture to the smoothie but also contribute heart-healthy fats, fiber, and a lot of vitamins and minerals. Avocados are particularly rich in potassium, which helps regulate blood pressure, and monounsaturated fats, which support brain function and reduce inflammation. Their natural creaminess adds a velvety texture to the smoothie.
  3. Dates provide a healthier alternative to refined sugars, lending a subtle sweetness to the smoothie while also supplying a burst of energy. Dates are rich in fiber, antioxidants, and essential minerals such as potassium and magnesium. They help promote digestive health, regulate blood sugar levels, and provide a quick energy boost without the subsequent crash often associated with processed sugars.
  4. Cashew butter adds a creamy texture and nutty flavor to the smoothie while contributing a dose of protein, healthy fats, and essential minerals like copper and magnesium. The protein content in cashew butter helps support muscle repair and growth, making this smoothie an ideal post-workout refuel option.
  5. Manuka honey, renowned for its unique antibacterial properties, not only enhances the sweetness of the smoothie but also offers immune-boosting benefits. With its natural enzymes and antioxidants, Manuka honey supports digestive health and soothes sore throats.
  6. Incorporating Just Thrive PREbiotic into the smoothie further supports gut health by nourishing beneficial bacteria and promoting microbial diversity. Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that pass through the digestive tract intact, reaching the colon where they serve as food for probiotics—beneficial bacteria that support digestion and immune function.

This avocado date smoothie offers a tantalizing combination of flavors and a nutritional powerhouse to start your day on the right foot.

Whether you enjoy it as a quick breakfast on-the-go or a post-workout refresher, this smoothie is sure to become a staple in your morning routine, leaving you feeling energized, satisfied, and ready to take on the day ahead.
