Avocado Smoothies

I love avocados. You can see my past avocado recipes here and here. So, when I saw a recipe for a smoothie that  called for avocado I jumped at it. I love that avocados easily conform to the salty or sweetness of any recipe. I'm not a huge fan of homemade smoothies because I always think they taste kind of bland. I would be lying if I said this was the best smoothie I ever had. It was good but I think it might have needed a bit more honey or more fruit added to it.

What you need:
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 2 cups ice

Directions:
  1. Blend all ingredients together. I would suggest blending the ice first so it breaks unless you have small pieces.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Enjoy. Makes about 2.5 full glasses.
