I remember a time when I never ate avocadoes. They just never occurred to me. Somebody should have slapped me! 😉
Slowly, these creamy fruits of delight made their way into my grocery cart and after my Whole 30 Experience, it’s been avocado city up in here.
This Orange Avocado Smoothie is so thick and creamy you could eat it with a spoon. It’s like a creamsicle dream and you are going to love it on a hot summer day.
I added frozen bananas to make it uber creamy and to replace the milk in this smoothie, which I’ve been doing a lot of lately. Because of my love of cheese, I’ve pretty much cut cow’s milk out of my diet for some balance. I’ve been loving coconut oil in my coffee ( aka Vegan Bulletproof Coffee ) and I used to use almond milk for my smoothies, however, finding organic almond milk is proving to be a challenge.
Luckily, frozen bananas combined with the aforementioned avocadoes create an almost soft serve like consistency, deeming any milk unnecessary. If you have any picky pants people to feed, don’t tell them the ingredients. They will never guess avocado. They might kiss you though. Because creamy homemade smoothies made fresh are nice. Super nice. 🙂
- 2 frozen bananas
- 3/4 cup fresh orange juice (about large 2 oranges)
- 1 avocado
- orange zest ( if you feel fancy)
- Place all ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth, adding water if needed
