Recipe: Avocado Smoothie

Avocado Smoothie

I have this theory that if you ever see something on a menu that sounds really strange, it probably tastes incredible. In fact, I almost always order the most unusual thing on the menu, and I’m rarely disappointed. Some of my most pleasant surprises have been things like a blue cheese tart, bacon ice cream, corn ice cream, and most recently, an avocado smoothie.

A couple of month ago I visited a local cafe and saw Avocado Smoothies on the menu board and had to try it out. Guess how many times I’ve gone back for an Avocado Smoothie since then? Sorry, I can’t reveal embarrassing information like that here.

I have since tried to recreate the smoothie, and I think I’ve finally got it down so that I can share it with you. I hope you’ll try it out–it’s so smooth and creamy and a nice alternative to your regular berry smoothies. The hint of coconut and almond make it even more spectacular.

Avocado Smoothie

2 cups ice cubes
1/2 large, ripe avocado
1 can coconut milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Blend all ingredients for 2-3 minutes in a blender and serve immediately. Makes 3-4 servings.

Try it out and let me know what you think!
