Let us get right to the facts, I wanted to rave about how awesome my smoothie was, but I didn’t want to photograph it & post it to social media. So I wrote up this recipe and if you are so inclined you can make it, photograph it, and post it to your social circle & be a hero. You will need a blender, a knife & a spoon. Let’s get this started.
1 ripe avocado*
1 banana (not all yellow but a little brown spotting)
1 tbs coconut mana
2 tsp honey
2 cups (~500ml) Vanilla “milk” (I use Almond fresh)
Peel the banana, put it in the blender. Slice the avocado in half & pop the nut, or carefully & quickly with the precision of a chef, chop your knife into the center of the nut & twist it out. Then scoop out the avocado flesh & add it in. Then in goes the milk, mana then the honey (so it doesn’t stick to the sides, love)
Blend these magical items together, and bam, you’re an idol baby. You will have all the foodies & health gurus bowing at your feet with this green masterpiece. Hmm, upon further reflection, I guess that would be the only downside, it’s hard to get some people to eat green food. At least it is a handsome green. I like handsome.
* I’ve seen the picture “not ready, not ready, spoiled”, and I’ll give you some tips for finding the best avocados at the store.
1. They are kind of wrinkly; the smooth avocados are okay, but never as yummy
2. The peel will be kind of on the dark side, Skywalker.
3. It is all about the touch. If you feel like you are going to stick your finger through it, it’s gone bad, and if it’s hard to the touch it is not ready yet.
Avocados last about four days at their perfect ripeness, in my opinion, but this smoothie can take a little bit of over-ripe anything, just make sure the insides are not black or brown. When buying, make sure to have a use for them so they wont sit around, like “Oh! On Tuesday I’ll make guac, and then in the morning I’ll make that smoothie that will turn me into batman I read about on the internet.”
P.S I was coincidentally wearing my batman hoodie while making my smoothie.
