An avocado made it's way into the green smoothie this morning...it was lonesome, sitting way over there in it's basket, getting overly ripe. I took pity on it, and impulsively chucked it into the whirling Vita-Mix that had already turned a frozen banana and a nicely ripe mango into a lusciously smooth base for this morning's kale smoothie.
Wow! That mixture went from smooth to decadently creamy in a heartbeat! It also thickened, so in went a little more water along with the kale, then a couple leaves of red lettuce just for fun.
What a filling, yummy breakfast treat! I may be buying those really soft avos now, just for a Green Creme' now and then!
