Equipment

  • blender

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk of choice almond milk, coconut milk or Macadamia Nut Milk OR ⅞ cup water + 1 Tablespoon cream may also be used: If you use this option, do not add the cream until the very end of blending. Add and briefly blend it in after the coconut oil.
  • ¾ cup avocado cubes, frozen (unless you prefer a room temperature smoothie) (I like to buy frozen avocados at the grocery store for convenience.)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup raspberries frozen (unless you prefer a room temperature smoothie)
  • ¼ cup beans of choice, cooked and preferably frozen: such as navy beans, white Northern beans, kidney beans or lupini (with skins removed; lupini have zero carbs)
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice fresh: about 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin coconut oil or MCT oil (If MCT oil, you may wish to start with just 1 tsp. to be sure it agrees with you, and then increase slowly.)
  • 1 Tablespoon each: flax and chia seeds (Or, basil seeds may be used in place of chia seeds; they are slightly higher in fiber and have a lovely basil flavor.)
  • stevia to taste, about 8 to 10 drops, or 2 Tablespoons liquid low-carb sweetener like allulose

Instructions

  • In a drinking glass or small bowl, stir together: water, lemon juice, flax and chia (or basil) seeds. Allow to sit 15 minutes, or as long as 2 hours.
  • Assemble all ingredients. Be sure your beans are frozen if you want a slushy smoothie. (If not frozen yet, it's okay to freeze for just 30 minutes.) Melt coconut oil; then remove it from the burner, and set aside.

  • Add to the blender frozen ingredients first: avocado, raspberries and beans. Add lemon water with seeds, milk of choice, sweetener and optional sea salt.
  • Blend on low speed. (Increase speed to medium-low as able.) Mixture will be thick. Blend a full minute because avocado takes some blending to get smooth when it's been frozen. Toward the end, carefully open the lid or pour spout in the lid, and with motor still running, pour in the melted coconut oil. Blend another few seconds. Serve.

Notes

The carbs in the nutritional data below are net carbs. They reflect the maximum number of carbs in this recipe. If you use lupini beans, the net carbs will be 3.5.
