green ‘healthy’ smoothies aren’t typically my cup of tea… you know, the smoothies with kale, spinach, collard greens or something else green and legume-y that nutritionally is really good for you, but i can’t imagine it tasting good in smoothie form. until now…

avocados are one of my fave foods and seem to make almost anything taste yummy. when combined with orange juice and honey in a smoothie, the ‘green’ taste of avocado has a subtle hint of sweetness. the creamy texture of the avocados also works well in smoothie form.

here’s my culinary experiment with avocados — adapted and inspired by another recipe blog

blend well:
– 2.5 large haas avocados (halved, pitted, peeled)
– 1.5 cups low-fat plain yogurt
– 1 cup orange juice (pulp-free)
– 3/4 cup water
– 1 tsp honey
– freshly squeezed juice from 1/2 lemon (to prevent the avocado from turning an ugly shade of brown)
