Fresh Friday Recipe: Chocolate Berry Banana Avocado Smoothie

Chocolate Berry Banana Avocado Smoothie Recipe

Perfectly ripe. Just right for an avocado smoothie.

Perfectly ripe. Just right for an avocado smoothie.

Okay, so here is my frist at making an avocado smoothie. I admit I am obsessed with avocados and have been trying to find ways to incorporate them into more recipes. I had never thought to put an avocado into a smoothie recipe before but as soon as one of my readers suggested it I knew I just had to try it! And as if that wasn’t enough the reader also explained that by adding avocado into the smoothie it would give it the consistency of ice cream.

I thought about what might go together to make an amazing avocado smoothie. For my first try I whipped up a batch of Chocolate Banana Avocado Smoothie using Tera’s Whey Chocolate Protein Powder, Stonyfield Lowfat Milk, amazing RAW honey, a perfectly ripe Fair Trade Banana, a whole organic avocado and some crushed ice. After blending my ingredients it look as tempting as an amazing Thick Chocolate Frappe from the Juice Bar on Nantucket however when I tasted it something was definitely missing from the flavor profile. The rich flavor of the avocado almost added a bitterness to it. After tasting it I decided I need to add some berries to the mix. Adding some Driscoll’s Organic Raspberries did the trick and added to perfect amount of sweetness.

The final product was definitely a lot like Ice Cream just as promised with a creamy texture and rich and smooth flavor from the avocado.  This smoothie is definitely a must try!

Please Enjoy this Chocolate Berry Banana Avocado Smoothie and please let me know what you think!
