Here’s proof that not all green drinks have a taste—or texture—that resembles dirt. This smoothie, from The Fresh Energy Cookbook: Detox Recipes to Supercharge Your Life, by Natalia Rose and Doris Choi, gets its creamy texture from banana and avocado.

Full of monounsaturated fat and omega-3 fatty acids, avocados help the body absorb fat-soluble vitamins, like A, D, and E, making the Green Machine a true power drink.

Prep time

3 min.

  • ½ cup ripe avocado
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tray ice cubes
  • 1–2 cups water
  • Stevia, to taste

Combine all ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth.
