Strawberry Avocado Smoothie
This week is going to be brutally cold in YYC. Highs in the -20's, windchills making it seem like -30. Brrr...time to breakout the long underwear, and start wearing 65 layers of clothes.
The perfect antidote to a cold morning and the fact that I will be a human ice cube for the next 5 days, is of course a smoothie. Hmmm, this doesn't seem right. A cold drink, after getting out of a warm bed? I make only one exception when it comes to smoothies and cold temperatures. The exception of course being my avocado smoothie. Creamy, filling and a delicious start to the week ahead.
1/2 avocado, peeled and pitted
1 cup almond milk
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt
1 Tbsp flax
Combine all the ingredients above in food processor except ice. Process till smooth and creamy, about 1-2 minutes. Add in ice. Blend further. Enjoy.
