This avocado asparagus smoothie is thick green perfection with tropical notes going through it.
I know, I know, you are probably thinking – asparagus in smoothies, really? I know, it sounds super strange, but asparagus is so nutritious and good for you.
If you are worried that the smoothie will just taste like asparagus, that’s not the case! You cannot taste the asparagus in this smoothie at all!
Can You Use The Whole Asparagus In Smoothie?
Of course, you can, but what we did is, we boiled the asparagus first, we didn’t put it in raw, which probably brings you to your next question can you put raw asparagus in a smoothie – you can…but we wouldn’t recommend it.
Asparagus needs to be cooked first, for an easy blend, saying that, eating asparagus uncooked is completely safe, but it can be hard to break into or digest.
So, if you have been looking for a recipe for a green smoothie with asparagus – you found the perfect one.
Now, you know when we mentioned that this asparagus smoothie recipe has tropical vibes going through it? Well, we added mango and coconut water for sweetness and tastiness.
So worry not, this smoothie doesn’t taste like grass.
