102: Raspberry-Avocado Smoothie

One day I read an article about using avocados in smoothies in place of yogurt. I like avocados, so I thought I’d try it. The recipe for a Raspberry-Avocado Smoothie is pretty simple – it’s 1/2 cup frozen raspberries, 3/4 cup each orange juice and raspberry juice, and an avocado. My raspberry juice was a (no sugar added) raspberry juice blend from Trader Joe’s, and I glazed over the frozen raspberry part so mine were fresh.

This was pretty good. Alex isn’t the hugest fan of raspberries, and he was surprised that there was no yogurt in it. We could both taste the avocado in it. I do wish I had used frozen berries instead. This is a good non-dairy alternative to yogurt, but I think that I prefer to have my avocados with savory things, like in guacamole and on sandwiches.
