Hey, I (along with everyone I told about it) thought it sounded weird too. But, after trying it, I (along with everyone I told about it), thought it was absolutely delicious! I think I got the original recipe from this site, but none I looked at seemed to be quite the same. So, please, try this healthy, delicious smoothie!
- 1 avocado (a whole one or just half)
- 1 cup milk
- sugar (to taste) or honey (to taste) or artificial sweetener (to taste)
- ice cube
- Put everything in a blender, and enjoy!
- Note: I tend to wing it when I make this recipe, and usually just pour in some milk, so just do what seems to work for you. Also, I think it tastes gross with honey, but I do believe that's the authentic Brazilian way to do it. I use two packets of Stevia sweetener instead.
I made this with homemade cashew milk & raw local honey. We also sliced bananas on top with more drizzling of raw local honey and some chopped almonds and pistachios in the fashion of a local shop which sells a similar smoothie. Next time I would like to try with just water as I didn't feel it benefited from the dairy free milk. Made for Healthy Choices Tag Game 2013.
A unique way to use an avocado...I added some sweetened condensed milk, leftover from the Brazilian lemonade, the sweetness helped the flavor. However, our family agreed that we would stick with guacamole.
