DIY: Avocado Smoothie

Hello Lovely,

You have some time to spare and you don't know what to do? How about you make an avocado smoothie! It's very easy to make and will not take you more than 30 minutes.

  1. 3 avocados
  2. Milk (used whole milk)
  3. Honey (preferred) or thick caramel
  4. 4 Ice cubes
  5. A blender
  6. Knife
  7. Measuring cup

Step 1: Extracting avocado

Cut your avocados in 4 portions and extract the avocado that you are going to put directly in the blander. With your measuring cup, get 2 1/2 cups of milk (I used whole milk because I wanted a very rich creamy smoothie) that you are going to add into the blender on top of the avocado portions.

Step 2: Blending

Press on the 'smoothie' button and let it mix for 10 min. Once the content has mixed perfectly stop the blender. You can alternate between the 'smoothie' and the 'ice crush' buttons, as long as your mix looks very smooth and there's no chunks of hard avocado left.

Step 3: Sweetening

Add 3-5 big spoons of honey or caramel, depending on how sweet you want your smoothie to be (I added 4 big spoons of honey because I love really sweet drinks (Guilty!). Once you have added the honey, add the 4 cubes of ice into the mix and start blending on 'ice crush' for another 10 min.

Step 4: Refreshing (Optional)

After 10 min, pour the avocado mixture into a container then leave the container into the fridge for an hour or into the freezer for 10 min. After an hour in the fridge or 10 min into the freezer, get your avocado container et Voila! You have an avocado Smoothie ready to serve!
