Creamy Avocado & Banana Smoothie

February 25, 2013

Of all the smoothies I’ve made these past few days, this one is by far my favorite. I was looking online for other smoothie ideas last week, and I came upon a few cool recipes using avocados. I had forgotten how much I love adding them to drinks. Avocados don’t have a very strong flavor, but they make any smoothie really creamy and give it a milkshake-like texture. The cashews add a nut taste, and the date adds sweetness. If you make yourself one smoothie this week, let it be this.

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango slices
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup avocado
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup cashews (raw or lightly salted)
  • 1-2 pitted dates

Blend! Add extra almond milk or water if needed. And, by the way, if you make the almond milk from scratch this passes as a fabulously sweet, raw food smoothie.
