This smoothie recipe is as simple as they come. Just 5 ingredients and you’ve got yourself a scrumptious and healthy smoothie. Not only is this smoothie nutritious and vegan, we also drop the banana for this one. Most smoothies contain banana as a base (see how to make a smoothie), yet not everyone likes banana smoothies. We swap out banana for creamy, dreamy, yummy avocado instead (see also how to make a smoothie without bananas).

Strawberries provide high amounts of Vitamin C, while Goji berries are full of antioxidants, amino acids and trace minerals. Goji berries are packed with nutrients and add a nice twist to this breakfast smoothie! Avocado makes this breakfast smoothie wonderfully creamy, adds healthy fats, and makes this healthy smoothie filling too.
