We love avocados so much we will eat them in practically anything. As long as they're not warm (see here), avocados can pretty much do no wrong.

Recently, we've been seeing avocados turn up in a lot of smoothies. If you're skeptical, don't be. Avocados provide a uniquely silky texture to smoothies without an overbearing taste. They're like a magic ingredient that will completely transform your smoothie game.

Avocados can give real substance to what might otherwise be an unfulfilling smoothie, and they offer a range of health benefits, too. They're high in protein and potassium, and a great source of fiber and healthy fat. After putting some avocado in a smoothie, you may never make another smoothie without it again.

Here are 11 smoothie recipes made all the better with avocado:
