Smoothie Sunday: Avocado Horchata Smoothie
My last attempt at a horchata smoothie was yummy, but a bit thin for my personal smoothie tastes. So I decided to try again. Remembering how thick the avocado smoothie I made last year turned out, I figured if I wanted a thicker smoothie that this would be a good bet. And I was right! This smoothie was much thicker and smoother. The fats in the avocado also made it more filling. Overall I preferred this horchata smoothie over the first, but they’re both good in their own ways.
Avocado Horchata Smoothie:
- 1 avocado, skin and pit removed
- 5-6 ice cubes
- ½ cup milk
- 3 tbsp horchata mix
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- Pinch of salt
- ½ tsp. honey
- Dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
In a blender, combine the first 4 ingredients until beginning to smooth. Add in the rest of the ingredients and blend until well combined. Taste and adjust salt, lemon juice, and honey as needed to suit your taste. Drink and enjoy!
