Ingredient alternatives

Most smoothie recipes are pretty forgiving when it comes to tweaking. This one is no exception. You can replace the chia seeds with 2 tablespoons flax meal or even Glucomannan powder. You can also use almond milk in place of coconut milk or peanut butter in place of almond butter. Keep in mind that this will slightly alter the smoothie’s macro composition.

Nutritional benefits

This smoothie has a particularly good balance of healthy fats and protein. You’ll get heart-protecting MUFAs from avocados and almond butter, anti-inflammatory omega-3s from chia seeds (or flax, if using), and MCTs from the coconut milk. The added collagen protein will be easy on your GI tract. It’s also an excellent source of fiber, providing 16-25% of the RDI in a serving. Other nutrients this smoothie is a good source of include vitamins C, E, folate, B6, magnesium, and potassium, among many others.
