Talking Smoothie


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

While traveling in Vietnam, I discovered a new taste treat….smoothies!  They were made with fresh fruit and oh so creamy and thick.  My absolute favorite was made with avocado, and I have been trying to replicate it for some time without satisfactory results.  You’d think I would have asked how it was made, but it didn’t occur to me that it would be much of a challenge.

DSC01811-2After many tries, I have come up with one that compares favorably.  The ingredients are simple: yogurt (1 cup), avocado (1/2), honey (1 T.) and a bit of coconut.  I don’t know what possessed me to add coconut, but it resulted in an extra touch of flavor.

DSC01815The first sip was a bit thick so I added about 1/2 cup of milk which made it perfect.  No question this creation will be added to my list of favorite smoothies for breakfast or lunch.

If you have smoothies you especially like, do share!

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

    What about a little touch of coconut cream and zest of a lime?

    1. How nice to hear from you. Ah, I bet coconut cream would be even better than the coconut as it would be completely smooth.

  4. My family’s favorite smoothie contains 1 ripe frozen banana, sliced; a generous spoonful each of organic peanut butter, coconut sugar, cacao powder, and ground flax seed; pinch salt, cinnamon, and ginger; 2 raw eggs (we have chickens); several ice cubes; and milk of your choice to cover all other ingredients. Makes enough for two. Even my little guy likes this!

  5. Ah, but have you tried a *durian* smoothie over there?!
