Avocado Mixed Fruit

*Avocado has sometimes received a “bad rap” as a vegetable too high in fat. While it is true that avocado is a high-fat food (about 85% of its calories come from fat), the fat contained in avocado is unusual and provides research-based health benefits.


Avocado Mixed Fruit

1 1/2 cups milk

1 1/2 cups orange juice (I used Simply Orange.)

1 avocado

2 cups frozen mixed fruit (mango, pineapple, peach, strawberry blend.)

2 bananas

1/3 cup vanilla yogurt

This was very tasty.  I was surprised by my daughter’s reaction to this.  She complained of it tasting like banana!  Not avocado!  This was a winner!

    Try adding some kale next time! I made an avocado/kale smoothie today with banana and frozen berry-cherry fruit blend and a bit of vanilla extract. I used water to thin it out, but you could use milk for extra calories if you want. The kale was undetectable, so I don’t think your kids would complain…it was a tasty lunch!
