Avocado gives smoothies an amazingly smooth texture. This morning decided to risk mixing blueberries and avocado, I know mixing green with reddish colors is a recipe for brown but I figured the avocado was kind of light green and blueberries have “Blue” in their name and I know blue and green are right next to each other on the color wheel so this just might be ok.
I got out a few things that I thought I might use. Fresh ginger, avocado, left over pears and some frozen blueberries.
I tried this green tea and white tea mix. I liked it waaay better than the straight green tea I used in my last green smoothie! I’m going to use this from now on and I don’t care if it may or may not be quite as good for me as the bitter plain green tea. This tea I will at least want to drink again.
I blended fresh minced ginger, a dash of vanilla, half an avocado, left over pears and their juice, 3 tablespoons of raw honey and some frozen blueberries while the tea was steeping.
Once it was all smooth I poured in one cup of the green white tea and a few ice cubes and blended for a few seconds again.
Then I inspected the color and taste. Color was grayish, not nice. I then added a tablespoon of lemon juice, more ice cubes, and a frozen strawberry for color assistance. That did the trick.
I will definitely make this smoothie again.
