Raw Creamy Banana Strawberry Avocado Smoothie
I never really got what the big deal was about smoothies. It always seemed to be a bunch of nameless swamp coloured concoctions that, to be honest, really didn’t make my mouth water.
Now I totally get it.
I tried a few times to make my own smoothies but you know what always seemed to be missing? Dairy. That really great creamy taste in your mouth. Everything without it just seemed a bit, well, lacking. That is, until, I made a discovery. Avocado. The natural healthy fats in this fruit make any smoothie just, well, beautiful! After drinking this luscious velvet shake my insides literally felt like they were taking a sigh of relief. I love raw food. I love how it can perk you up and keep you going instead of weighing you down.
You know whats funny about so much raw food? Its both vegan AND paleo! See? Sometimes they can get along :D .
Anyhow, here we go- super simple, right on time for strawberry season, and soooo easy to digest (happy times!).
Banana Strawberry Smoothie
- 3/4 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 banana ( I like red ones, I find they are milder and easier to digest)
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup water to help emulsify
Blend it! Eat! :)
NOTE: if you wanna do a riff on this one, you can also try adding a little raw cacao powder, soaked dates and a squeeze of lemon juice.
