Avocado smoothie

If you recall, i bought a blender about two months back. I have been having one cup of fruit juice everyday since then, even after my mom has returned to Malaysia.

Uh huh, you will be surprised to know that i do make juices every morning and this has become one of my routines.

Just to prove that i am indeed fully utilising the blender, i am gonna write about making avocado juice, which is one of my favourite juices. Well, to be exact, it is not really avocado juice but more like avocado smoothie. And it is really simple to make.

(There are different sources of information about whether or not avocado is fattening and will cause weight gain. Some say no since it is good fat, while some say it will still make you put on weight. Whatever it is, it tastes good and is very nutritious. And i love it!).

Here are the ingredients - avocado (only need half of it), milk and honey.

Cut the avocado lengthwise around the seed and twist to separate the halves. Then use a spoon to scoop out the flesh of the half without the seed.

Refrigerate the other half with the seed (do not remove the seed!) in a plastic bag (or what i do is placing it face-down on a small plate and then cover it with a bowl). As it will oxidise and the flesh will turn brown, it should be consumed the very next day.

Then measure the milk with a cup - use half-cup or 2/3 cup of milk for half avocado, depending on the size of the fruit and how thick you want the drinks to be.

Pour the milk into the blender.

Add honey to it. One teaspoon of honey is good enough if you are doing half, but it really depends on how sweet you want it.

Then blend it. It should only take about 15 seconds or so, depending on your type of blender.

After it is well-blended, pour it into a cup.

And here you are - a cup of healthy and yummy avocado smoothies to start off your day!


Haha! thanks for your sharing.
I just bought avocado and milk yesterday and thinking of making the drink too. ^-^

Ha, i see you have replaced coffee with fruit juice. Too much coffee is indeed bad for health. And thanks sharing the tip. Cheers :)
