Smoothie Sunday: Guavacado Smoothie
Full disclosure – this is not the most attractive looking smoothie I’ve ever made. In fact it’s probably one of the least attractive ones. Like, I was actively disappointed in how not good it looked. But fortunately looks aren’t everything. Taste is important too, and luckily it tastes good. While I’d had guava juice in stuff before, I’d never actually eaten just guava fruit before, but I found them when I was at the store picking up an avocado and thus this smoothie was born. The fact that the words “guava” and “avocado” blend together so well is merely coincidence.
- 2 guava fruits, skin and seeds removed
- ½ avocado, skin and pit removed
- ½ cup orange or mango juice
- 6 ice cubes
- Pinch of salt
- Sugar to taste
Add the first 4 ingredients to your blender, and blend until smooth. Add salt and sugar to taste, and pulse until well combined. Avocado makes smoothies really thick, so you may need to add extra juice to get the smoothie to your desired thick/thinness. Pour into a tall glass and enjoy!
