Has anyone else heard that we're having an avocado shortage?
I'm not sure if it's still an issue, but ever since I heard that about a month ago I've been craving avocado like no joke.
I would say I'm falling under the “you want what you can't have” psychological spell, but really.. I'm still able to buy them, so I CAN have them.
And so can you! With banana. In a smoothie.
Just trust me on this.
This was the first time I tried adding avocado to a smoothie.
At first, I thought that did not sound good at all.
But I figured what did I have to lose? Worst case, only half an avocado!
I was not disappointed. Honestly I was hesitant on whether or not I would enjoy drinking avocado, even though I love eating them. I tell people about adding avocado to a smoothie and most people make a weird face at me.
But now I'm a fan for life.
The first time I blended this without ice, which I would not recommend as highly. It is much more refreshing with ice.
I also added a handful of spinach, just because I can.
You don't have to. But maybe you want to. Your call.
If you're an avocado lover I would definitely recommend trying this. I am always looking for ways to use avocado since it is so incredibly good for you.
