When I tell people how avocados are one of the best ingredients for making tasty smoothies, most of them look horrified. All of a sudden they turn into Peter Kay – “Avocado smoothies??“. But when they actually try said avocado smoothie it’s a totally different story. They love it! The subtle flavours of avocado are taken over by whatever you are mixing it with, be it banana’s and honey, blueberries, or chocolate. But what remains is the avocados luxurious smooth and creamy texture. It really is a raw food chefs secret weapon. If you love yoghurt or milk in your smoothie but are wanting to cut out dairy, chuck an avocado in instead. Not only will the smoothie taste amazing, you will also be getting a shed load of vitamin E and anti-oxidents to boot. Win! If you do a lot of high intensity workouts, having a smoothie with an avocado is a great post workout drink. Adding hemp protein powder to your shakes and smoothies is also good if you exercise a lot. I will do a post soon with a recipe for a powerhouse protein packed shake! In the meantime, try this simple yet gorgeous Blueberry and Avocado Smoothie. It’s a perfect one to start your day with, but I had mine for my tea and was totally satisfied for the rest of the evening. Thick, creamy and your skin will love it. Bottoms up!
Chuck everything in a blender and whizz it up. This tastes so good, it will be hard not to gulp it down in one go! I bet you anything you’ll look at the bottom of your glass and think “Oh, I wish I’d savoured that a bit more…”. 😉
