Avocado Orange Smoothie

On some bizarre planet, the word diet precedes vacation.   Here it leads into vacation and haunts you afterwards.  That being said, my smoothie journey continues.  We have reached the “it sounds like a good idea” stage.   This is where someone else says “the avocado is going bad” and “can’t you make something with it”.

So praying to the saint of lost causes for guidence.  St Francis, I hope. It’s been a long time since I had a Catholic woman in my life to tell me which saint was appropriate for which occasion.

Caution to the wind. Avocado being halved and skin.

The mad scientist list:

Two handfuls of greens
1/2 Avocado  (peeled, seeded, & sliced)
Two Oranges  (peeled & sectioned)
One cup Grapes
One cup Strawberries
One Banana
1 1/2 cups Almond Milk
Two tablespoons Flaxseed Powder
Tablespoon Pink Lemonade powder

OK its green!   Really green!  This made 54 ounces or about 1.75 liters.  Is came out fairly thick, you may wish to add 1/2 more water or green tea.

As usual. Blend greens and liquid smooth before adding fruit.   I used frozen strawberries and added them at end with powdered ingredients.   Different taste due to avocado.  Which is lost in the citrus part.   Very filling stuff here.
