You Can't Guess What's In It Smoothie
My love affair with avocados
I first tried an avocado smoothie at my friend's house. I thought it was super delicious and it didn't even taste like avocado! I think most people wouldn't think that an avocado tastes great in a smoothie, but it does!
I have always loved avocados with Spanish rice and beans and maybe some pernil(Spanish Roasted Pork). Yummy!! Speaking as a Dominican, I can tell you that It would be hard for you to find any Dominican who didn't like a nice slice of avocado on there plate. We love to eat it alongside breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Although for most of my life, I ate avocados as a vegetable, it made sense to me that an avocado would taste great as a fruit. You see, I once worked for a couple that was from Lebanon and owned a restaurant. They introduced me to eating avocado slices with sugar sprinkled on top. That's when I learned that avocados are great not only with salt sprinkled on top, but prepared in a sweet way too! But then ... I had an avocado smoothie, and that is how avocados became my new favorite fruit!
I tried to re-create the smoothie that I tasted at my friends house as soon as I got home. I took samples of my first attempt around to all my family members and withheld the identity of the ingredients. One by one, they all had a similar experience. First, they all let me know it was yummy and then they guessed (incorrectly) what was in it. Eventually, I took pity on them and let them in on the smoothie's well kept secret. They were all surprised.
I have been playing around with different ingredients to add with the avocado. Everyone loves this particular mix a lot! I hope you enjoy it too!
- 1 can coconut creme
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2 cups strawberries
- 1 large avocado
- 1 lemon, just the juice
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp organic brown sugar
- 1/2 cup organic reduced fat milk
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 2-3 cups ice
- Blend together and serve :)
