Avocado Shake



I've been just a little obsessed with avocados lately. They're smooth, creamy, so healthy and make one amazing shake. I like making this with whole, organic milk but it also works great with nut milks. Make it with raw honey, which is a fantastically healthy sweetener (but not too much), throw in some coconut oil for another healthy boost and indulge yourself in the luxuriously rich, milkshake-like creaminess. Try it for yourself:


Avocado Shake

Servings: 2
Preparation Time: 5 minutes

1 avocado
1 1/2 - 2 cups milk (adjust to desired consistency)
1-2 tablespoons raw honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
5-10 ice cubes, to taste
1-4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted (optional)

Remove pit and scoop avocado flesh out into a blender. Add remaining ingredients except for coconut oil and begin blending while pouring coconut oil in a steady stream.




Fun fact: avocado shakes are popular in Brazil.

What do you like to put in your smoothies?

    Geoffrey the garden gnome passes on his magical wishes :) I do love some avocado. That most certainly is one healthy drink. I shall shake myself and make a shake.

  3. I love avocados, I put them in all my sandwiches!

    Usually I'd go for my good ole' mango smoothie during summer, I haven't been drinking a lot of smoothies lately due to the cold weather.
