Green smoothie time. Thick, creamy, and delicious. Mix up a perfect meal or snack in less than 5 minutes. It is a smash hit even among the kids…the creamiest, yummiest treat.
Avocado is rich in magnesium that reduces risk of excess belly fat, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar. The avocado flavor is very light and blends well with fruit, veggies, yogurt, coconut milk or water, honey, and nuts. I typically adapt this to what I have on hand.
It provides an unbelievably smooth, creamy background for flavors of your choice. Very filling. It reminds me of a milkshake. Absolutely divine!!
- 1 ripe avocado with seed
- 1 ripe banana
- 1/2 C blueberries
- 1/2C frozen mixed berries
DIRECTION: Fill the 16-oz blender with coconut water and purée until smooth. If using all fresh berries, add a few ice cubes and blend to smooth. If you have a sweet tooth, add some honey and/or vanilla extract.
YUM YUM YUM. It’s amazing and cheap to make. Did I mention amazing? ♥ This one is for my dad…a special time to honor and render my earnest thanks. I miss you so much. Happy Father’s Day to my honey and all the dads in the world!
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
