Avocado Green Smoothie



I've been experimenting with smoothies in the search for non-dairy veggie goodness. I've thought about using coconut yogurt but I'm not really a fan of it. I've also thought about soy yogurt but that is even less desirable to me.

On my last long training run, I mentioned to my running partner that I wasn't sure how to replace the yogurt in my favorite smoothie recipe because I liked how creamy it made them. She suggested subbing in avocado. I asked on twitter and people chimed in saying avocado in a smoothie was delicious! My friend Amanda even sent me her favorite recipe. I was intrigued with this idea and so I made a smoothie with avocado this morning. Yum! Even Molly liked it.
