The smoothest smoothie

I love fresh avocados - they have a smooth texture, a fresh taste and can be added to a lot of dishes: top a pizza, stuff in a pita with falafel, add to a salad or make a smoothie. Last weekend I tried a banana avocado smoothie. This week I added a little something extra.

What you need:

  • 1/2 a large banana
  • 1/2 an avocado
  • a few spoonfuls of yogurt (I use Stoneyfield Farms organic fat free French vanilla)
  • 2 or 3 ripe strawberries
What you do:
  • Peel and slice the banana and avocado
  • Wash and slice the strawberries
  • Add to a hand/stick blender cup or blender pitcher
  • Blend, pour into a glass and enjoy!
This makes enough to fill one small drinking glass, which is a good for one person's large breakfast portion. The end result isn't the most vibrant smoothie color, but it is delicious!
