Avocado Smoothie

My old room used to have one wall painted green. I loved the soothing affect it created. The color green represents life and rejuvenation, maybe thats why green health smoothies are so popular.  Also, avocados are full of replenishing effects. Avocado mixtures make great hair masks in the winter to prevent dry and brittle ends. 

This recipe is adapted from the Bon Appetit Magazine. I added the honey and changed the ratio of ingredients. I paired this drink with a pea and radish salad.

Combine the following ingredients in a blender. Once the mixture is homogeneous add some chopped ice for texture. 
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp of lime juice (lemon will work)
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tbsp of honey
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh mint

Tip: to ripen an avocado, place it in a sealed brown bad with a banana or an apple for 24 hours.

How do you use your avocados?
