Avocado Mojito Smoothie : Rich, Creamy and Delicious



Luke Hines says:
"This rich and creamy avocado smoothie makes good use of those phenomenally delicious detoxifying ingredients, ginger and turmeric. It’s also full of good fats and is high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories.

INGREDIENTS
1 avocado
1 cup coconut milk
1 handful of mint leaves, plus extra to garnish
3 tbsp. filtered water, plus extra if needed
½ tsp ground turmeric or 5 mm of turmeric, finely grated
1 tsp ground ginger or 1 cm piece of fresh ginger, finely grated
¼ tsp stevia
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1 cup crushed ice

METHOD
Place all the ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender and whiz everything together until smooth (if it’s a bit thick for your liking, loosen it up with a little extra water). Pour into glasses, garnish with extra mint leaves and serve.

THE LOWDOWN

One of the reasons mint is added to this recipe is because it is a great digestion aid, helping us better process and absorb the nutrients we take on board in all the food we eat. It can also soothe the stomach in cases of indigestion, inflammation or discomfort."

Hello,

I love avocado but I can not imagine it in a drink? I would at least try it once.
Happy Friday, enjoy your day and weekend!

Check, coconut milk I do have. Avo I´ll have to try. Sadly ALL my herbs and spices died in the heat!
But... another addition to my favs :-) Thank you!

I tried avocados once a long time ago. It tasted ... eugh! Maybe I'll try them again. Perhaps hide them in a smoothy.


God bless.
