Today I thought I would try an avo smoothie since we have a few of those little green eggs in our pantry... Avocado makes smoothies sooooooooo smooth (as in silky smooth and thick) and have healthy belly-fat-fighting properties. When I tried to get at the recipes, I got locked into either abandoning what looked like a pile of fantastic recipes OR signing up for a newsletter that I don't want... because down came a pop-over or pop-up with NO way to exit or get at the recipes. Grrr.... Ah well, life is too short to go on and on about that.
Here is a sample recipe, with adjustments of my own (like, who needs ice cubes when you can use frozen fruit instead? and out with extra sweeteners and dairy, wherever possible):
1 large pear, chopped
1/2 cup frozen green grapes
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Cold Water to level wanted
**Spin all the above up in your Vitamix! (serves 1 or 2)
