avocado smoothie


I love avocados, I love smoothies. I never thought of putting them together though, until one day when I was desperate for a smoothie but all I had in my house was some coconut water and an avocado. I had my first avocado smoothie that day and I never looked back. Avocados are a staple in my diet. Because of their creamy texture and high fat content (good fat, but still fat), they're extremely versatile in vegetarian and vegan diets where good fat is a definite necessity. Avocados are high in potassium, vitamins B, E, and K, and are also high in Fiber. They're a great source of helpful cholesterol also.

This recipe, like the rest of my recipes, is open to interpretation. I don't measure out any of my ingredients, I just eye them out and toss them into my Bullet Blender. Also, I used rice milk but you can use whatever kind of milk you prefer.

First, put in your fruit. It should be a little thawed so that it won't destroy your blender's blade but still pretty chilly. For mine, I used peaches and strawberries.

Pour in your juice and your milk and slice up your avocado. Know how much you plan on making and use a little less liquid, that way you'll have more room to add liquid in after you're done blending it the first time. While you're blending it, watch to make sure everything is blended and there are little/no chunks. When you've reached that consistency, open your blender and check in on your mixture. It'll be VERY thick. Pour a little more milk in (I also add some Maca powder at this point too, but that's completely optional!) and blend again, for about 40-50 seconds, or until it reaches the desired consistency.

Hurrah! You're done. Experiment with different liquids and fruits until you find one that you absolutely love. Another combination that I love is avocado, Naked Juice's Green Machine, Vita Coco Coconut Water with Pineapple, a couple Spinach leaves, pineapple, and honeydew. Try out your own combinations, if you have any particularly delicious ones, feel free to share them in the comments below!
