Avocado Smoothie3

Ingredients:

  • 1 perfectly ripe large avocado
  • 2 kiwi fruit peeled
  • 1 whole lime juice
  • Litchi juice (as it is transparent/white and this would not change the color of the smoothie and give you a blend of sweet and sour)
  • 1 tablespoon honey to taste
  • 2-3 ice cubes

Method:

Cut avocado and kiwi into pieces so that it would be easier to blend and squeeze lime as soon as possible. Squeezing lime on avocado would help it not to turn black after coming in contact with air. Place litchi juice in the blender first, then fruit and ice. Blend it up until creamy and smooth.
