Easy Avocado Smoothie / Salad Recipe

Hello friends,

Avocados have not really been a very likeable fruit even though it is now easily available in the Indian markets.You need to develop a taste for it or really make an interesting recipe to relish avocados. Just the other day when I visited my local Hill Road bazaar, my fruit vendor offered me one kg for just INR 400/. I totally jumped for the deal and got home a kilo of avocados.

The first night I just chopped one up and put some chaat masala on it to relish it further. The avocado is a powerhouse of nutrition. It’s packed full of healthy fats, fiber, and vitamins. It makes an excellent add-on to any type meal, and it’s the perfect way to round out snacks so they’re extra satisfying. The easiest avocado snack that can be made is guacamole dip thats a super hit at the party scenes.

Avocado smoothie


However I tried two dishes - one sweet and the other  savoury. A healthy smoothie and an avocado salad. Check out both the easy ten minute recipes below.



1. Avocado Smoothie

This recipe needs 5 ingredients and 5 minutes to prepare.



 Ingredients


1 ripe avocado
Handful of almonds
1 cup skimmed milk
1 ripe banana
3-4 Spinach leaves
Ice cubes



Method

1. Peel and roughly chop up the avocado and banana.
2. Wash the spinach leaves.
3. In a blender along with 4-5 ice cubes add milk and all the ingredients and give it a good mixing for 2-3 minutes.
4. You can powder the almonds before hand to make the texture even smoother.
5. Serve it chilled.

Option - Add a scoop of protien powder to make it an after workout booster.

Avocado salad


2.  Avocado Salad



Ingredients

1 ripe avocado
1 onion
1 tomato
1 green chilly
Salt and pepper to taste
Juice of half lime
Coriander leaves.



Method

1. Finely chop all the veggies and avocado.
2. In a mixing bowl mix the vegetables with salt, pepper and lime.
3. Cover with cling film and let it chill for half hour before serving.
4. Enjoy it guilt free with a chilled Gazpacho soup.

Option - To the salad you can add cucumber or boiled corn too. However I prefer lesser ingredients to enjoy flavours better.

Now indulge guilt free and stay healthy.
