Mexican avocado smoothie: Licuado de aguacate
This is a basic recipe for a Mexican avocado smoothie. Feel free to add banana, strawberries, or even apple, and to substitute soy milk for regular milk. It's a great way to start the day with the generous dose of vitamins contained in avocados, the calcium in the milk and the probiotics in the yogurt.
- 2 cups milk
- 1 ripe avocado
- ½ cup plain yogurt
- 2-3 tablespoons honey or agave nectar
- Ice if desired
Place all ingredients in a blender and liquefy until smooth. Serve in tall glasses. Makes 2 generous servings.
