The 52 New Foods Challenge: Amazing Avocado Smoothies + Bonus Ingredient

Hey everyone!

I recently received the 52 New Foods Challenge cookbook and was so inspired by all the creative recipes that I decided to share my own recipe with you guys!  This cookbook is all about inspiring families to work together, get healthy together, and try new foods together. 
Reserve your copy! Ships November 4, 2014. 

After looking through some of the recipes, I came up with my own smoothie recipe that I like to call the Banana Bash Smoothie.  It does have one pretty interesting ingredient that you might find surprising…

Banana Bash Smoothies
1 1/2 cups dairy free milk
1 avocado - remove pit
1 banana
2 teaspoons sugar or agave
1/2 cup ice - optional
1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder - optional

Break banana into 3 or 4 chunks, toss into blender.  Scoop avocado into blender, along with milk, sugar and ice if you want a thicker smoothie.  Add cocoa powder to make a chocolate smoothie.
Blend for almost one minute until smooth.  If smoothie is too thick, add about 1/4 cup more milk.

Well, there you have it!  This smoothie is super delicious and nutritious, your whole family will love it!  The best part is, you can have as a breakfast, snack, or even dessert.  Give it a try and let me know what you think! 

See you next time,

Lizzie Marie
