    I loved this! Sweet, refreshing - high in calories, but otherwise healthy. It was lovely. I made this for my friend who just had her wisdom teeth pulled. She said it was a pleasant change from juice all the time. Thanks for this one.

    This recipe is too sweet for avocados. I was expecting a savory smoothie. I did not like it.

    This tasted really good. I'm not much of a cook (just recently smoked my blender). :) I've been testing out the new one and was glad to stumble across this recipe. It seemed like it would be too heavey/thick for me, so I substituted using skim milk and half&half cream. Used regular sugar and halved all ingredients since I used a small avocado. It was still a little too thick for my taste and I wanted it cold so I added 4 large ice cubes. Came out green cold and frothy. Excellent recipe!

    Luciously think, creamy and rich. I had make this to have with our lunch and it was enjoyed by everyone. I would make this delicious smoothie often.

    This was one of the creamiest things I have ever tasted, and a beautiful shade of green. Mine was a little bitter, but I think that was the quality of the avocado I used, or the fact that the avocado was small and I had to play with the proportions of the other ingredients. I found it was so rich and filling that even the scaled-down batch I made was more than I could consume at once, but if you want a really big smoothie as a meal, it might be one serving.


I'm an ex-pat NZer living in the tropical Top End of Australia. Which makes it a perfect place to make homemade bread and summer recipes all year around. I experiment on my 3 kids who have grown up trying new Zaar recipes every other day and they are thriving. I'm the lacto-ovo vegetarian in the family and somehow I got roped in to become a Forum Host here at Zaar. So check out the Vegetarian and Vegan Forum http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=43 and feel free to join in whether you are a fully fledged vegan or someone who needs to cater for a vegetarian and has no idea where to start. Every year I try to do something a bit different to push the envelope a little bit. In 2005 I learned how to sail a dinghy; 2006's grand passion is mosaics. Check out my blog! Between raising three children, working almost fulltime and trying to pursue my hobbies...let's say that my time management skills have greatly improved over the years! I am also very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle. Essentially I'm finding that I'm getting back to the country lifestyle I enjoyed in my childhood even though these days I live in themiddle of suburbia. To this end I have started gardening although I am a total gardening virgin when it comes to gardening in a tropical climate. I also have a cookbook with a number of recipes you can make from scratch. Living clean and green is good for you AND cheaper!
