the avocado banana smoothie

It’s obvious we love avocado around here. I’ve heard tales of delicious avocado smoothies and milkshakes. Apparently you can make a mean avocado milkshake combining avocado and sweetened condensed milk. The closest I’ve come to trying that is an avocado bubble tea. I wanted to try something a little healthier. I couldn’t find a recipe that sounded quite right, so I made up my own. Avocado, honey, and lime? Check, check, check. Get out your blender and give it a try.

AVOCADO BANANA SMOOTHIE

Serves 3.

2 avocados $1.58
juice and zest of half a lime $0.25
2 bananas $0.50
3/4 cup plain low fat yogurt $0.30
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk of choice (we used non-dairy “coconut milk beverage”) $0.28
3 tablespoons honey $0.18

total $2.91 or $1.03 per serving

Put all ingredients in the blender, being sure to follow the avocado immediately with lime juice to prevent it from turning a hideous shade of brown. Blend until smooth. Add a little extra milk as needed to achieve the perfect smoothie consistency.

    I don’t do dairy, but I am SO going to make this with So Delicious coconut milk yogurt. It looks incredible!
