These are wonderful. Creamy and sweet and super healthy! Feel free to add one whole mango to the concoction (but then I usually add 6 oz mango juice and 6 oz water because I don't like mine super sweet).
- 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
- 1 ripe avocado, halved, pitted and peeled
- 1 (12 ounce) canchilled mango nectar (like Goya)
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves
- In a blender, puree all ingredients and serve in a chilled glass with a lime wedge as a garnish.
This was my first time trying avocado in a smoothie, so I was a little nervous at first... but it was wonderful! I didn't have mango nectar, so I used fresh mango instead. Unfortunately, my mango must have been underripe, because it just didn't have much juiciness at all and made the smoothie way too thick. I compensated for that by adding a bit of apple juice, and it worked great. Mine was also mint-free, since I had none in the house. Sometime I will try this with the nectar and mint leaves. So good! Thanks for sharing!
Yumm! This is sooo good. I used frozen mango chunks and then added some water but otherwise kept to the recipe. The avocado is so creamy but it's the fresh mint that really made this for me. Thanks for posting, I will be making this again for sure. Made for the Nov 08 veggie swap.
we have a greenie everyday at my house so this was a new way to mix it up...i did this several times with slight changes here and there...i used fresh mango and peppermint and loved it then made it again with some real "greens" added because i like to drink a couple of salads a day...so added spinach, kale or romaine with to the blend (sometimes all) with the avocado and fruit to thicken and sweeten...the avocado is a wonderful change from my usual banana and makes a much richer greenie!! :) THANKS SO MUCH for posting a green smoothie recipe... i am always seeking new ideas of how to keep it "fresh"...:) as i try to drink 16 oz. or more of a green smoothie a day and sometimes go on a "green liquid only fast" for a couple days...to cleanse my system some...this is fabulous, green and good :)
