I tried Kourtney Kardashian's viral breakfast – and now I'm a convert too
Who would have thought?
I will be the first to admit I am not a huge Kardashian fan (understatement of the year), but what I am rather obsessed with, is wellness and, in particular, healthy eating. And so when I learned that Kourtney, who now sees herself as a bit of a wellness guru thanks to her website Poosh, has been eating the same breakfast for five years straight, I was intrigued to learn more about her now-viral avocado pudding.
After sharing a cup of the pale green pudding with Addison Rae in a YouTube video, Kourtney, 42, admits she got the recipe from her son's former nanny, who was Brazilian, but that she has tweaked it a little to make it even healthier. "I wish everyone understood how good this is,” Rae proclaimed" and honestly, I knew I had to try it for myself.
Here is the recipe Kourtney posted on Poosh:
1 organic avocado, pitted and peeled
1 cup organic plant-based milk (Kourt alternates non-dairy options, right now she’s using cashew milk)
1 scoop of plant-based protein powder
1/4 teaspoon of MCT oil
2 dates (or 2 tsp Manuka honey, right now Kourt is using dates)
1 teaspoon maca powder
1 scoop of Wild Greens Supreme
Note – I did not have maca on hand, so omitted that in my version, and while I had a green superfood powder, mine was not the one listed in Kourtney's recipe. Oh, and I used coconut milk, as I did not have (nor am I a fan of cashew milk).
The verdict? It was actually pretty darn good! I tried it again and this time, added an ice cube to the blender, as I prefer my smoothies cold – and the result was delicious.
An upgraded version
Turns out, the world at large has been obsessed over Kourtney's avocado pudding these past few weeks – with people either falling into the camp of loving it, like Addison Rae, or straight out hating the pale green smoothie/pudding hybrid.
I was definitively camp liked it – but had a sneaky feeling it could be made even better – and look more tempting – with some minor adjustments.
After a quick scroll through TikTok and Instagram, I realised lots of people felt the same, and many had already experimented with their own versions. Some added things like spirulina or matcha powder, others used coconut water to make it more liquid-y, but some had the genius idea of turning the avocado smoothie into a bowl situation, meaning you are gree to add delicious toppings like berries or granola – and suddenly, I knew this was more my vibe.
To thicken the smoothie up, I added a frozen banana, a couple more ice cubes and some freshly squeezed lime juice – and voila – I think I just found my new favourite breakfast. I topped mine with shredded coconut, homemade granola and my favourite, some fresh mango, and honestly, you have got to try this, trust me.
My version of Kourtney Kardashian's Avocado Smoothie
1 avocado, peeled and pit removed
1 can coconut milk
1 tablespoon date syrup (I am vegan, so don't use honey)
A handful of ice cubes
1 frozen banana, cut up into smaller bits
1 squeeze of lime juice
Blend in blender on high speed, pour into bowl, and top with whatever you fancy
