I have always been a lover of smoothies and milkshakes. In college, I spent pretty much all of my flex dollars (read McShane Money akin to Toys R Us Geoffrey Bucks) on smoothies from "The Grille."
On fastpaleo and other sites, I constantly see banging smoothie recipes. Many of which have banana in them, which is unfortunate because I cannot get my boyfriend to even be in the same room with me when I am eating one. So try to camouflage it all you want, dude knows. Its his spidey sense.
I felt like getting creative today. And it was 3:30pm. And I hadn't eaten anything. And even though I wasn't particularly hungry, I knew my body needed a little fuel for cleaning. Got a little creative with fridge contents, and here we are. You can definitely sub another fruit should you desire. Or chia for flax. More flax/chia for the raw coconut. And I think this would be great with almond, dairy or hemp milk too. Whateva. Mix it up, baby. Just remember: NO BANANAS ALLOWED.
Smoothie # 1
2 avocados, super ripe
1 champagne mango, diced
2 1/2 cups of coconut milk like Silk Pure Coconut
4 ice cubes
1 tablespoon of flax meal
1 tablespoon of raw coconut
1 teaspoon of organic wildflower honey (optional)
juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon of organic, sugar free vanilla extract
Add avocado, 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk, flax, coconut and lime juice to a blender and mix until well combined. Add ice cubes, mango, honey, vanilla and remainder of coconut milk and blend again. Slurp with a straw, obvs.
You may want to add more milk or even some water to get it to your personal desired texture. My mango was super juicy and my avocado very soft so I didn't need any more liquid.
