Immune Boosting Avocado Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup of strawberries (preferably fresh, but frozen will do)
  • 1 cup of orange or strawberry sherbet
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted


Avocado adds a creamy texture you don?t usually find in smoothies. Surprise it on your friends and family. They?ll be amazed it was made with avocado.

Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
Serves 3 - 4.

"My favorite way to use avocados is on sandwiches instead of mayonnaise. At 50 calories per tablespoon (which is the same as light mayonnaise), they beat the nutritional profile of mayonnaise hands down! And avocado slices on my soup or chili is a second favorite."
