Avocado Smoothie Recipe

One of my favorite summer treats is a freshly blended avocado smoothie. They’re a great alternative to ice cream on those hot days, and pretty low-cal considering how rich and creamy it is.

It’s super simple and easy to make. See more below for my recipe!

Ingredients:

-1 ripe avocado (halved and pitted)

-1 1/2 cups ice cubes

-2 cups skim milk

-2 packets Splenda + 2 packets sweet n’ low* (or substitute 3 tbs honey if you don’t want to use artificial sweeteners)

*I like to combine two different types of artificial sweeteners to create a real sugar taste. I find that if I just use one brand, things tend to taste “fake” or somehow off.Β This way, you get all the taste with a fraction of the calories!*

Blend all ingredients together on high. Serves 2.

Calories per serving: 224

Enjoy!
