Tonight, when I got home from yoga, I was craving two things: a smoothie and an avocado. So, I decided to combine the two. It turned out amazingly delicious. I’m going to share the basic recipe with you and then suggest some additional options for the smoothie.
Creamy Coconut Avocado Smoothie
1 ripe avocado
1 cup coconut milk tonic
1/2 cup coconut water
1 large handful greens (spinach, lettuce, chard, etc.)
2-4 sprigs parsley (stem and all)
5-10 drops stevia (or, you can omit if you’re going completely sweet-free)
In a high-powered blender, combine avocado, coconut milk tonic, and coconut water until smooth. Add the greens, parsley, and stevia and blend. Add ice until you reach the desired consistency.
This would also taste great with fresh or frozen fruit added in like berries, pineapple, or strawberries. The smoothie is rich and creamy and gives you another couple servings of veggies and good fats, something we can all use.
Give it a try and tell me your favorite combination. I’d love to hear it!
