I’m not really much of a smoothie person. Especially fruit smoothies. There is just something about the texture of frozen fruit blended that I can’t get past. It doesn’t go down smooth and I don’t like to chew my drinks. 😉 I tried really hard to like fruit smoothies when I was going through this juice cleanse phase. {Which I don’t recommend…if you’ve never been hangry before you will be on a juice cleanse}.

Basically the only kind of smoothie you’ll catch me drinking is something that has peanut butter and chocolate in it. And some yogurt to make it creamy. I’m not entirely sure if this really counts as healthy though, so I added some avocado to make me feel better about myself.

I had some left over after I made these avocado oatmeal raisin cookies and since I don’t normally eat avocado I tossed it first into a ziploc and then into the freezer. I meant to let my sister, the avocado freak, eat it while she was visiting in September but I totally forgot. I had to use it up though because all our spare freezer space has been devoted to housing all the pork products that were just delivered from our favorite farmer. Seriously, have you ever eaten humanely and locally raised pork or chicken? It is the BEST you’ll ever taste.

What were we talking about? Oh, right. Smoothies. Normally you add a banana into a peanut butter smoothie but I don’t like bananas so I left it out. Weirdly enough, the avocado gives it a kind of banana-y flavor anyway so if you’re a banana fan I bet a frozen banana would lend not only to the creaminess but play nicely with the avocado flavor, too.

Are you a fruit smoothie drinker? Or do you prefer something smoother like peanut butter and chocolate?
