Avocado Coconut Smoothie Recipe| Drink Recipes

I hate making an elaborate breakfast during summers. Thanks to the heat and lack of appetite. Plus i am a smoothie person. I love gulping down tall glasses of chilled smoothies and milkshakes made with fresh fruit at home. So i find summer a perfect excuse to make and gulp as many and as much of a smoothie i want.

My dad is here and he was sweet enough to lug along some nice avocados for me. While i did make some guacomole and a nice wrap with some of those buttery avocados, i wanted to try my hand at a smoothie.
While i was contemplating between a regular avocado smoothie and a combination of other fruits plus avocado smoothie, i realised that i really didnt want to go the regular route. So i decided to try a different combination- avocado and coconut. And oh boy! the smoothie made my tongue sing for hours. I was craving for it even after the last dregs of the pitcher was washed away. While i m going to make some more smoothies with this buttery goodness, i thought i should share away this super smoothie with you all. And yeah, expect some more avocado recipes from me this Summer. After all i have some more sitting nicely in the fridge.

  4. It looks really yummy! I will try it these days. I have one question. The smoothie should be drunk right after making it? Or could I keep some in the fridge and drink it the next day? Thank you.
