Avocado Smoothie

This post and recipe is about the super fruit "The Avocado" commonly known as butter fruit in India.It is such a wonderful fruit, even though its a tad on the fattier side,it helps lower bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol, helps in weight management.What more do we want?

 In India, people don't know what to do with it.Once I went to a famous supermarket and was buying avocados, the sales person came and asked me, what is it and what do you do with it. That's how much  awareness they have got about this super fruit.Avocado's doesn't have any taste, it taste buttery. Even when you add flavor to it, it does not take in much flavor.
 It is a regular fruit in our diet. This is one of way I use avocado.It is such a simple recipe it literally takes minutes to prepare.It just has only 3 ingredients and you can have it with or without sugar.My husband uses honey, you can use agave sweeter or any sweeter of your choice.Replace your regular bottled juice in the morning to this healthy drink.

Avocado juice Serves 4
Avocado - 1 peeled and de-seeded, cut into chunks
Milk - 2 cup (optional)
Water - 2 cups or 4 cups if not using milk
Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
Sugar - 3 tbsp or honey or any sweetener according to your choice.

Add the ingredients in the blender and blend till smooth.

Half an avocado will serve two.The fruit does not have any water content so it will be thick and creamy.The fruit is so smooth once you blend it, it will look like custard, so use water or milk to bring to the consistency you like.
If not using milk,increase water to 4 cups.
