AVOCADO AND RASPBERRY THICKSHAKE
Note to supermarkets – if you make avocados 50 cents each I’m going to buy way too many of them. This in turn means that I’m going to have a lot of very ripe avocados to get creative with and there’s only so much guacamole that even I can eat. I bought six of these super cheap super fruits, hence the appearance on here of many avocado based recipes and this was what I made with the last (exceedingly ripe) one.
I think that this makes a really good dairy-free alternative to a milk shake and it feels a bit more indulgent than a smoothie. It’s very thick and creamy. Raspberries with avocado is one of my favourite combos, I think that their sharp tang really compliments the creaminess of the avocado.
This is packed with fibre and vitamin C and obviously you’ll be getting all the usual avocado based benefits too, so next time you get bored with your bowl of bran flakes maybe you should treat your tummy to one of these for breakfast!
125g raspberries (frozen ones work fine and keep the whole thing nice and chilled)
1-2 tsp honey (to taste)
squeeze of lime juice
1 very ripe avocado
350ml (approx) unsweetened almond milk
Whizz together the raspberries, honey and lime juice in a blender or food processor until they are well pureed. Add the avocado and the almond milk and blitz again until everything is thick, creamy and smooth, you don’t want any lumps of avocado that can get stuck up your straw!
