Cranberry Smoothie with Peas and Avocado

You will love this delicious cranberry smoothie with pea and avocado. Less fruit and more vegetables means it isn't as sweet as most smoothies, but still bursting with flavour, is packed with protein and has a wonderful creamy texture. Easy to make, it's a great way to start the day.

Ingredients

  • 250 ml cranberry juice
  • 1 tbsp blueberries
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 cup peas frozen
  • 1 sprig fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tsp chia seeds (optional)

To serve

  • 1 tbs mixed berries
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 2 sprigs fresh mint

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a blender or smoothie maker. It's easiest to scoop out the avocado flesh with a spoon. 
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Adjust consistency by adding more cranberry juice  if needed.
  • Serve garnished with a few extra berries, a spring of mint and sprinkle of chia seed.

Notes

If you don't have access to a power blender or food processor, you can use a stick blender and make this with defrosted, but chilled peas. Add all ingredients to a jug and blend together.
