This avocado citrus smoothie recipe is a refreshing taste of summer you can make at any time. It’s filling and nutritious.
Remember my protest? This is what it was all about.
Snow coming down at the rate of 1-2 inches per hour seemed as good a time as any to make a pretty tropical tasting drink don’t you think?
Doesn’t seeing those ingredients immediately make you think of summer, flip flops, pools and heat? I tried to visualize that with each sip instead of the horror scene unfolding outside my window.
I’m not gonna lie, avocados always remind me of Mexican food too but that wasn’t really the image I was going for here.
For those skeptics on adding avocado to a smoothie, you can’t taste it. It just gives it a really creamy, smooth texture while slipping in some healthy fats, fiber and of course a fun color.
Our power is back, the snow is melting, life has returned to normal, but I’d still make this again in a heartbeat.
