The Avocado


So, I really really love avocado. When I was growing up in Grenada we had an avocado tree (pear tree in the yard and I took this super food for granted for so many years.


But now I’ve rediscovered it and I’ve tried the trendy smoothie recipe *see below* and it’s so delicious!


1 1/4 cups cold unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk beverage

1 ripe avocado

1 ripe banana (I omit this as i don’t like bananas)

1 sweet apple, such as royal gala, sliced

1/2 large or 1 small stalk celery, chopped

2 cups lightly packed kale leaves or spinach

1 1-inch piece peeled fresh ginger

1 tbsp lemon juice, 8 ice cubes


Blend milk beverage, avocado,  apple, celery, kale (or spinach), ginger, lemon juice and ice in a blender until very smooth.
