Avocados has been a family favorite since I was a young girl. Now that I have my own family, we use avocados in our weekly meal plan for some of our favorite dishes. But avocados can be used for so many other alternative meal solutions as well.
My daughter is a notorious smoothie maker. She’s a typical girl that doesn’t “wake up” hungry. In fact, she can easily go until lunch before she eats a meal, but by then she is starving!! Over the summer I bought her a inexpensive single serving mixer that she can use to make smoothies. We have several blueberry bushes in our backyard for fresh fruit is just a few steps away. Over the months we have experimented with various fruits and added additional ingredients to create unique smoothies that is a healthier option than skipping breakfast.
One of our new favorites is an Avocado & Banana Smoothie. With only a few ingredients, we can have a nutritious natural shake with loads of protein. One of my favorite aspects of this smoothies is that you can easily make it for under $3.00!! Healthy & affordable, my daughter & I will love it and you will too!!
1 Ripe avocado
1 Ripe banana
1- 5oz greek non fat PLAIN Yogurt
1 tbsp honey
8 cubes ice
2 oz milk
1 packet of Splenda or any other sugar sub
Add all items to my smoothie maker. Ice always goes closest to the blades. Mix for 2-3 minutes or until well blended.
The smoothie will come out extremely smooth. If our nervous about using avocados as a smoothie, don’t be. It is an extremely light taste and very good for you.
The great thing about making a smoothie is that you can add items or eliminate items based on your preference. Someone can add an additional tablespoon of honey if they like their smoothie sweeter. You can also substitute the banana for blueberries. Our blueberries have ran their harvesting course already and we happen to have bananas on hand every week so this suits us.
