Can we just agree that this is a powerhouse smoothie that is not only totally YUMMY, but is also really Good For Us and we should maybe consider consuming one every single day from now on. You on board with that? Ok good, me too.
Kids will also LOVE this smoothie…
They’ll never know there is avocado in there because of the stronger flavour of the strawberries and the sweetness from the banana and orange, so Sneaky! Any time you can sneak in extra goodness, I say go for it.
I for one am delighted that the weekend is upon us, I’m also feeling peachy because the sun is out! After a couple of days of miserable, cold, rainy and windy weather, it was a happy surprise to wake up to clear blue skies, a gentle cool breeze and bright sunshine! I do believe a beach walk is in order for this evening.
Whatever you may be getting up to this weekend, I hope you have a happy time. And maybe take 5 minutes to try out this Incredible Strawberry Avocado Smoothie! I can assure you it will put a smile on your face, and lots of goodness in your tummy.
