This avocado asparagus smoothie is thick green perfection with tropical vibes going through it.
I know, I know, you are probably thinking “asparagus in smoothie” Really? I know, it sounds super strange, but asparagus is so nutritious and good for you, furthermore, you cannot taste the asparagus in this smoothie at all!
But, the benefits of asparagus smoothie are many – asparagus helps your urinary tract and kidneys so much! it’s particularly helpful if you are someone who gets UTIs often – asparagus will help prevent that or assist in recovery when that happens.
Can You Use The Whole Asparagus In Smoothie?
Of course, you can, but what we did is, we boiled/steamed 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.
