It's Friday!! And that means it is the second week of sharing something a little healthier with you and my new friends over at Homegrown and Healthy. Lately, I've been on a smoothie kick for breakfast and I've been experimenting with all types of smoothies. Because we're friends, I'll admit this to you: most of my smoothies end up looking like that grey Polyjuice Potion sludge from Harry Potter. I just... I don't know. I want to get the most out of my smoothies and end up putting everything I can find in the kitchen into the blender.
It tastes good, but just not very nice to look at.
Lately, I've been trying to focus on ingredients that go well together and hush that inner voice that tells me I need to not only eat the rainbow, but drink it as well. And guys... I think I've finally got it.
This smoothie is super thick and creamy. I am talking, velvety smooth because of the avocado. It's sweet, fresh and so satisfying. I love everything about it. Especially that color. Let's just stop for a moment and admire that beautiful bright green color.
It's so bright and happy and so am I in the mornings when I have this smoothie along with a piece of seedy whole grain toast and a small drizzle of honey.
