I decided to give avocados another chance. Today, I decided to make something up on my own though!
Avocado Cherry Smoothie
1 avocado (Peel and remove seed.)
1 cup frozen cherries (I stuck mine in the microwave to thaw them just a tad.)
1 1/2 cups milk (I used 2%…you can use more or less depending on how thick you want it.)
Mix it up! I poured some for the kids to try. They both seemed to like it pretty well. The first sip I took I wondered if they would or not. I could taste avocado in it. When I mentioned that it had one in there, my son seemed pretty surprised. I’d say it’s a winner!
Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a “nutrient booster” by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.
Meat proteins, fat oil, vitamins and minerals from vegetables, they all are found in a single fruit: avocado. Eating this is like having a whole meal, with different types of food!
