Raspberry and Avocado Smoothie

I am a self-confessed gadget geek. This stretches to many things in my life, but most especially to my kitchen. Lakeland is a particular danger zone for me – whilst I can go clothes shopping and come away with nothing, put me in Lakeland and I could spend up. One of my most recent purchases was a smoothie maker, and this has got me very excited, and all in the name of healthy eating! A win-win situation!

Raspberry Avocado Smoothie

This particular recipe was my first attempt of a smoothie and it was a great success! Only four ingredients, and it makes 2 large smoothies – great for making first thing in the morning. If you do not have a smoothie maker, just use a food processor.

Raspberry Avocado Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado
  • 3/4 cup of orange juice
  • 3/4 cup of raspberry juice (cranberry juice would also work
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries.

Instructions:

Remove the flesh from the avocado and place in the blender. Add the frozen raspberries, raspberry juice and orange juice, and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and serve.
