Avocados feature in several of the smoothies in our book as they create a silky smooth and creamy texture without the need for bananas or dairy products. However, in this creamy smoothie, avocado is no mere accessory; rather, it’s the star ingredient! We combine it with a generous amount of lime juice for freshness, as well as mango and dates for sweetness. The result is an ultra-lush and creamy smoothie with a flavor that reminds us of Key lime pie.
- 1 ripe avocado, stone removed
- 1/2 ripe mango, stone removed (or frozen*), approximately 1/2 cup mango flesh
- 2-4 soft dried dates, pitted
- 1 cup filtered water
- Juice of 1-2 limes
For the smoothie
Add the avocado and mango flesh to a blender along with the rest of the ingredients.
Blend on a high speed until completely smooth.
Taste and adjust the sweetness and sourness to your liking by adding more dates and/or lime juice if necessary.
Pour into two medium-sized glasses and serve cold.
