Brain Power Smoothie (Blueberry Avocado Smoothie)

Blueberry Avocado Smoothie 1

Healthy eating month continues on Gimme Some Oven today with a smoothie I’ve been hooked on lately. It’s basically a blueberry avocado smoothie recipe, but I like to call it my brain power smoothie because it’s chocked full of tasty ingredients that are good for brain health.

And let’s be real — I’m a total nerd, so anything smart and brainy sounds good to me.

Speaking of being nerdy, I’m not quite sure why this came to mind, but have I ever told you the story on here about me winning my 4th grade spelling bee? Oh yeah, I rocked it at my elementary school with the word “a-u-t-u-m-n, autumn”. So I was sent to the regional spelling bee to represent the school, but unfortunately I got eliminated on the first round. My word? (Now please picture a packed auditorium full of parents and students with an awkward old man very dryly reading the words.)


(And yes, I asked for the definition.)

I think that may have been the most “scandalous” moment that spelling bee crowd had seen in years. But thanks to that darned “a”, my spelling bee career didn’t go much farther. At least I learned a new definition about “splits in rock formations”. :)

But I digress…

So whether you’re also into spelling bees, or (like me nowadays) would just like help remember where on earth you laid your keys, this brain power smoothie is here to help. It’s super tasty and sweet, it’s easy to make, and it’s oh-so-good for you.

The 6 “brain health” ingredients you need are:

  • blueberries
  • avocado
  • banana
  • chia seeds
  • pomegranate juice
  • ice

Just google ’em. They are all fantastic “food for thought”. :)

And making this banana avocado smoothie couldn’t be easier. Simply add everything to a blender…

…and blend until it’s nice and smooth.

Then dive into that yummy berry flavor and just feel yourself getting smarter. S-M-A-R-T-E-R, smarter. :)

  4. Omg! I just made this and can’t believe how delicious it is! I absolutely hate avocados and have been trying to find ways of getting them into my diet because of how healthy they are. I always taste them in whatever I mix them with but this was delicious, creamy, and couldn’t taste it at all. Thanks for the awesome recipe :)

    • Wow, thank you Angel! That’s so cool that you enjoy this despite not liking avocados! Glad you found something you can enjoy them in.

  9. Hi, this looks very good.  I am diabetic and wondering what the nutritional value (carbs, etc) is.  Thank you.

    • Thank you Rita! We’re sorry but we currently are not publishing nutrition facts on the site. The nutrition calculators available are not 100% accurate, and we never want to publish anything that might be misleading. However, many of our readers love the My Fitness Pal nutrition calculator, so feel free to try that for an estimate. We’re not sure about the sugar content in blueberries and bananas, but the pomegranate juice (and most other juices in general) has a good amount of sugar in it. We don’t want to give you incorrect info, especially since you are diabetic, so we recommend asking your doctor, or a healthcare professional. We’re sorry we can’t be of more help!

  11. The recipes and the presentation looks absolutely amazing. I try to make breakfast smoothies so thank you for these delicious recipes!

  12. I make this every day for my toddler and I. Except i keep my blueberries frozen, instead of using ice cubes, which leaves more room for goodies instead of ice and keeps my blueberries from going bad. Just a tip :)

    • That’s a great idea Kourtney, and we’re happy you and your little one enjoy this! :)

    Yum! I nixed the ice and used frozen fruit instead. I also blended up everything except the juice and chia seeds. It was nice and thick so I evenly distributed into a silicone muffin tray and popped them in the freezer. Once frozen, I put them in a bag back in the freezer. Whenever I wanted a smoothie, I would use 2- 3 of them blended with pomegranate juice and chia seeds. Very satisfying!
