Peachy-Cado Smoothie

I decided to break my boring smoothie routine the other day and go
for something other than the usual banana-strawberry-kale combo.

That's when a new smoothie was born. Right in my kitchen.
We named it "Peachy-Cado" and then swiftly devoured the entire
thing like the herbivores we are.



Blend.

1 peach
4 strawberries
1/2 avocado
1/2 C. spinach
1/2 C. raw orange juice
1/2 C. rice milk
1/2 C. crushed ice

Pinkies up.

And try not to devour a Reese's peanut butter cup as a reward after
drinking this smoothie like I may or may not have done.




I'm no doctor, but I'm seeing this as a WAY yummier version of a multi-vitamin.
Anyone?! You can find other cool smoothie ideas HERE!

Hallelujah Acres knows what's up and I love scouring
their website for awesome plant-based ideas!

    1. i seriously thought the same thing, Leah! - but - believe it or not - it takes on the flavor of what it's blended with and adds lots of healthy fats to the mix!!! i usually reach for a banana - but thought "WE LOVE CADOS!" so we went with it!!!!

    I LOVE the thick almost mousse-like texture an avocado gives smoothies! The healthy fats in the avocado seem to make the smoothies even more filling as well.

    1. YES! That's exactly what the avocado does for a smoothie, Christy! Well put. Mousse-like. And totally agree - super filling. This was actually the main course of our lunch one day.
