After I tried making banana “ice cream”, one of my friends N sent me a recipe for avocado “gelato” (from this Tiffany Cruikshank Yoga Facebook post), which sounded delicious and easy to make, so I had to give it a try!
I whipped some up today and loved it! I know some people aren’t keen on avocados, but if you like them, this recipe is a must try.
- Half an avocado*
- 1 cup of frozen fruit (we used mangoes)
- 1 Tbsp of honey
- 1/4 cup of coconut water
*A lot of people laugh about seemingly useless kitchen tools, but this all-in-one avocado tool is my friend (Crate & Barrel has since started selling a fancier one)… removing the seed with a knife always came with a risk of slicing my hand open! 😛
Throw everything into the blender and blend until smooth!
A couple weeks ago, I was lamenting about my potentially wrong decision to purchase a new blender because we haven’t used it that much lately, which Matt pointed out today as I excitedly blended and tasted my frozen avocado treat (darn, he does pay attention to what I say!). I guess it was a good idea afterall! Looking forward to trying other healthy blender recipes soon 🙂
