This week features a refreshing avocado smoothie to
conquer these hot Summer days. Blended with mint, fennel, and coriander you’ll feel yourself come alive to this sensory explosion.
Whether you’re a fan of avocados or not this recipe is a must try, especially when you’ve got way over-ripened or far too under-ripened avocados. This awesome fruit plays a pivotal role in creating this smooth and creamy concoction as the base note that intermingles the other ingredients. Due to its mellow tone, the avocado allows for a lot of leeway towards the flavors it will work with.
Take this recipe to new heights by subbing in coconut milk or by replacing the mint with cilantro. Better yet use heavy cream and whip it into whipped cream or foam it up with C02 cartridges! Or lastly, turn this smoothie into an avocado panna cotta topped with whipped coconut cream, and fresh blackberries.
So blend it up!
