It's St. Patrick's Day, and I can't wait to get a drink in me to celebrate!
While you could make this beverage alcoholic, I kept it virgin for health reasons. (I lost four pounds!!!) About 5 more and I'll stop, I swear. I promise my fingers aren't crossed behind my back!
I am one of the laziest dieters. I exercise for about 10 minutes every 3 days, and I ended up having 2 cheat days on the weekend.
So I'm all for "juicing" the pounds away.
Avocado Banana Smoothie
Prep time 5 mins Total time 5 mins Serves: 2
½ of one medium avocado, peeled and pitted
1 banana, peeled
⅛ tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp granulated sugar, or to taste
1 cup soy milk, approximate
6 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until creamy and smooth (approximately 10-15 minutes), adjusting sweetness to taste and adding more milk as necessary to reach desired consistency.
(Since it's St. Patty's Day, I won't judge if you spike it a little. Just make sure the kiddies don't touch!)
