I know you’re thinking, “avocado??” but you wouldn’t know if I didn’t tell you! Avocado is one of those amazing healthy fats. It’s packed with omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, potassium, and folic acid. It also doesn’t have a strong flavor, so you can mask it with other ingredients. This is the perfect way to get more of this super fruit into your body!
I definitely recommend a vitamix for this since you can use the tamper to press the food down while mixing. If you are using another high speed blender, just pause and use a spatula to scrape down the sides. You also may need a bit more liquid in another blender to keep it moving.
It comes out looking silky and smooth like this Looks good doesn’t it!? It tastes just as good! Make sure to taste it before you dish it out so you know if you need to adjust anything. Guilt free and delicious!
