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.

None of the reviews seem to be from people who’ve actually made the smoothie, but I did and I had it for breakfast so I just want to let everyone know how it was. It was incredibly delicious! I didn’t have almond milk so are used to ounces of unsweetened coconut milk, and 1/3 cup of water. Left out the ice. It was absolutely delicious feeling and topped out at 236 cal none of the reviews seem to be from people who’ve actually made the smoothie, but I did and I had it for breakfast so I just want to let everyone know how it was. It was incredibly delicious! I didn’t have almond milk so I used to ounces of unsweetened coconut milk, and 1/3 cup of water. Left out the ice. It was absolutely delicious filling and topped out at 236 cal. according to my fitness pal.

I’m trying to eat a plant-based diet at this time, and this is definitely going into the weekly rotation on a permanent basis. Thanks for a great breakfast today!

Take a tortilla wrap and place it upon a board or platter.

Put thereupon the flesh of one half of an avocado and the flesh of one banana and smite and hack them enough until they be well introduced but not overfamiliar.

Then cast upon the heretoaforementioned mash some ground peppercorns of whichever variety thou find pleasing, and then swaddle the mass by the tortilla wrap. If thy needs are for more sweetness, then thou should add a modicum of honey or syrup or nectar, such as would be pleasing to thy palate.

Now take the whole forth and give nourishment unto thy being.

And may thee be blessed with vigor and vibrancy.

Pete That sounds not so appetizing. But I am curious enough to try it now. What do you call this an avocado banana pepper wrap?

This has always been one of my favourite smoothie combos. And if I want to jazz it up a bit, I'll sometimes add a knob of ginger and a squeeze of lemon. So good
