This is an unusually delicious smoothie! If it weren't for the gorgeous green colour, you might never guess that avocado was lurking inside. A fabulous way to get your five a day.
Add more milk if you like your smoothie thinner, more ice if you like it thicker. Don't use coconut milk instead of the coconut cream - otherwise the taste and consistency will be affected.
I changed the recipe so that I could enjoy this! I used plain yogurt instead of vanilla, and soy milk instead of whole milk. I used equal amounts of ground coconut and water instead of cream of coconut. Then, I forgot to add the ice cubes! This turned into a smooth, rich smoothie! Wonderful recipe, even with my adaptations! - 07 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Funny - made this for Hubs this morning and he slurped it up heartily- he said it was good, and that he really enjoyed it. Only after he was done with it did I ask, "Do you wanna know what that was? What was in it?" Once I told him, he replied with a grimace, "Oh, THAT'S what that odd taste was." Just like a kid. Seriously, I did have my doubts but I had all the ingredients on hand as specified in the recipe. And if it didn't work the avocado would have more than likely gotten tossed anyway. It was creamy, smooth and different. Delicately flavored, so it's hard to isolate what, exactly, is in it. Pretty light green, good for you (avocado is a "good" fat), and a creative and different twist on the typical fruit based smoothies. Try it on your hubs - just don't tell him it's AVOCADO he's drinking until it's gone - if ever. - 12 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I haven't tried freezing it, but it is one great smoothie!! I went with a friend to an asian restaurant and she ordered an avocado smoothie. I wasn't quite brave enough to try it, and after trying hers I went looking for a recipe. This one fits the bill! Thanks for sharing this recipe! - 09 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
