A Healthy Avocado Smoothie

Do you love eating avocado? I do but not all people like it. I love it pure by just cutting the avocado into halves, get off the stone and eat the avocado meat without adding any sweetener. That´s just it. Yummy!

 

It´s so boring to eat the same food and so I think of many ways what to do with my  avocado. Sometimes I make avocado:

  • Fruit salad
  • Ice candies
  • Ice creams
  • Milkshakes
  • Dessert decorations
  • Smoothies

 

I use avocado too for facials and body scrubs and it was always good. Now I am thinking of making avocado cake or cupcakes. That would be great and I am looking forward to making those goodies.

 

Now back to the main topic. Here´s my healthy avocado smoothie recipe with my overripe banana and almost out of date yoghurt. As you see, I don´t like to throw food and so I make use of it.

 

Ingredients: 2 persons

1 ripe banana

200 gram natural yoghurt

2 tablespoons canned oranges

1 ripe avocado

1 tablespoon of honey

 

Procedure:

  1. Cut the avocado into half and get rid of the stone.
  2. Spoon the avocado into small pieces and put the meat into the blender or smoothie maker.
  3. Slice the banana and add this to the avocado.
  4. Add the oranges, natural yoghurt and the honey.
  5. Blend the fruit mixture well until as smooth as you like it.
  6. Wet the tops of the serving glasses and then dunk them to sugar before serving the avocado smoothies. CHEERS!!!

 

The avocado smoothie was very delicious that my hubby who didn´t like avocado drunk the smoothie. LOL! Btw, I left 1 tablespoon of avocado meat and made it for my facial mask. It´s good to have hit 3 “birds” by 1 shot at a time, don´t you think?

Healthy Strawberry Mandarine Smoothie

I was so thirsty this afternoon after I got a back and shoulder massage from the Thai massage salon nearby. I had a terrible backache these last few days that I had to go for a massage. It was a good one. I am okay now but sleepy. Anyway when I reached home I was so thirsty that I was looking something for a cold drink. A healthy cold drink. I still had a small package of strawberries and mandarine leftover from yesterdays Tuna Mandarine Filo Pastry Pinwheels. Natural yoghurt was also in my fridge that I made myself a smoothie. I made Strawberry Mandarine Smoothie for 2 persons.

Procedure:

  1. Clean, wash and cut the strawberries into halves.
  2. Put the strawberries, mandarines, honey and natural yoghurt in the smoothie blender.
  3. Blend them together until smooth enough to your liking.
  4. Serve the smoothies in a glass decorated with strawberries or any other fruits you like and peppermint leaf.

 

Tips:

  • If you don´t have natural yoghurt, you can use fruit  yoghurt  or milk for you need a little liquid in  making a smoothie.
  • In case you have strawberries leftover, you can either eat them or cut some of them and scrub them in your cleansed face. Let it stay for a while and then wash your face before moisturising it. So it´s not only your tummy having a healthy drink but your face has a healthy treatment as well.

 

When making this smoothie, you have to use an electric blender or smoothie maker. Every time I made smoothies, I used the fruits that I had at home as I was and still am not good in planning for what to eat unless I had to cook for a crowd. I mostly cooked spontaneously what I was craving for. If I was lucky, I had all the ingredients in my kitchen or else I had to be creative again.

Healthy Banana And Mandarine Smoothie

After a few days of eating varieties of delicious food this Christmas,  I thought of making something healthy today. Well, after we had a visitor because I was serving some Christmas gingerbread chocolate cookies and marzipan Christmas cake  for our afternoon snacķ.

 

Yes,  I really have to make something healthy. We received a smoothie maker this Christmas. When I told my hubby that we have smoothie for dinner, he said that he didn’t mind. He wondered though what else I would put in the smoothie maker besides Bratwurst (German  sausage), potatoes and brown gravy. LOL! Of course he was joking.

 

Banana Orange Smoothie Ingredients:

1 Banana

1 Mandarine

1 teaspoon of honey

1 teaspoon of lemon juice

1 glas of fresh milk

 

Procedure:

After cleansing my new smoothie maker, I put the milk first in the smoothie holder or bottle. I then added the cut banana, the mandarine fruits, lemon juice and the honey. Then I screwed the blade unit on top  of the smoothie bottle  before putting it on the machine.

Making this smoothie is really simple. Just follow the direction of your smoothie maker. You can use any kind of fruits you like.

 

Fruits for making smoothies:

  • Strawberries
  • Black or blueberries
  • Pineapples
  • Apples
  • Oranges
  • Mandarine
  • Tangerine
  • Plum
  • Cranberries
  • Avocado
  • Guava
  • Pear
  • Banana
  • Grapes
  • Jackfruits
  • Tomatoes
  • Carambola or Star fruits
  • Cherries
  • Durian

 

Vegetables for smoothies:

  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Cucumber
  • Carrots
  • Lettuce
  • Zucchini
  • Peppers

 

Herbs and spices for smoothies:

  • Ginger root or powder
  • Parsley
  • Cinnamon
  • Turmeric
  • Cloves
  • Chili or cayenne pepper

 

There are many kinds of fruits and vegetables for making smoothies. It depends on your taste. If you like durian fruits, you can add this too in your smoothies. This is the fruit that I don´t like, not because of the disgusting smell but because it had caused me stomach ache when I have eaten this fruit once. Maybe it was just heavy for my tummy.

Enjoy making your healthy smoothie!
