Stonyfield Summer Smoothie Recipe

Summer days make me smile. The warmth, the sunshine, the endless amounts of activities…

Once the warm weather hits, my appetite is all about the cold and creamy; and what packs together that combo better than a cool, refreshing smoothie?

When I saw that Stonyfield was holding a summer smoothie contest, I couldn’t resist the challenge.

The criteria for the contest:

  • Recipe must contain at least one cup of any variety of Stonyfield or Oikos organic yogurt
  • No more then five ingredients may be used (the more organic, the better)

Now, I’m sure most of us have tried some form of a berry smoothie before. One of my favorites is actually raspberry, so there was my starting point. But something needed to be kicked up a notch; something needed to bring this smoothie from a “Plain Jane” to a “Sassy Sue.” I wanted a smoothie that could refuel my body after a long, hard workout. It took a few “trial & errors” in the blender, but eventually, a winning combo was created.

Would you ever guess that the secret ingredient in this smoothie is…avocado??





Raspberry Avocado Smoothie

Serves 1 large or 2 small

Puree all ingredients in a blender until smooth and combined. Add ice or water to adjust the thickness to your liking. ENJOY!

*Option: To make your smoothie pack more of a protein punch, swap a scoop of your favorite protein powder for the orange juice.



If you’d like, go ahead and embrace the season by topping your smoothie with a fancy umbrella. I promise, it will taste that much more refreshing.

    This sounds so yummy! I LOVE avocados in smoothies! Actually, I love avocados in any form, but they add that certain delicious richness to smoothies, cakes and brownies! Mmmm!

    Hmm, an avocado in a smoothie..can’t say I’d go that route, but yours does look awfully tasty and if I didn’t know it was in there, I’d drink it for sure!

    (I don’t like avocado, you see ;))

    VERY creative :)

    I’ve used Avocados in smoothies before, they give such a decadent consistency. Probably wasn’t a smart idea to give the recipe up though when you are submitting this in a contest!
