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!
-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. This way, you get all the taste with a fraction of the calories!*
Blend all ingredients together on high. Serves 2.
