Berry Avocado Smoothie

I stopped recording smoothie recipes ages ago because it had become more of a process of chucking in whatever I had on hand rather than following any specific recipe. Recently, someone gave us a lot of avocados and I’ve been trying to figure out how to use them up since the boys won’t eat them straight.

I don’t have exact quantities for this smoothie because it was one of those “bit of this and a bit of that” type smoothies but it tasted so good that I felt we had to make a note of it. For the benefit of the boys, you can’t taste the avocado at all, but it has all the creaminess of a milkshake.

So here’s what’s in it:

  • Half an avocado
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 an apple
  • Handful of frozen strawberries
  • Handful of frozen blueberries
  • 2 tbsp milk powder
  • 2 tbsp O-Tigres black soy bean powder
  • 3 large dates
  • 100ml vanilla yoghurt
  • 1 cup of coconut water
  • Handful of ice cubes

No fancy pictures because I really hadn’t expected this to work out at all but this is what the end result looks like:
