I love avocados. Love them! They are one of my favorite foods. It’s crazy to think just a few years ago I would have snubbed my nose at one and refused to eat anything with avocado in it. Now, I can’t get enough of them. I’m on a smoothie kick and thought a banana & avocado smoothie would be a great new way to enjoy them!
When asked to come up with a creative new way to eat my avocados this Cinco de Mayo. I wanted something that fits my whole get fit attitude right now. I use avocado often in replace of mayonnaise, cut slices and add to taco night, or my favorite way- mashed up plain with tortilla chips.
I decided with spring in the air here I wanted a fresh new smoothie, a Banana & Avocado Smoothie.
With Bananas. I’ve gone a bit crazy with my foodsaver and I have a lot of bananas. I like using frozen fruit as I can skip the ice. I’ve started freezing them in sets of two but in the beginning, I did them in bulk. You learn how to best package things as you go. Did you know you can foodsaver your avocados too? Cut them in half and remove the seed, seal in plastic, freeze.
I also like using yogurt. Banilla is by far my favorite. For this smoothie, you’ll grab two frozen bananas and one cup banilla yogurt.
