Meatless Monday – Shake it

Sorry for the delay with updates readers!  As previously stated, I was traveling internationally for work last week and unfortunately didn’t have time to post.  But I do promise loads of goodie posts, continuing with my Europe vacation, this past trip to London, foodie posts and finds in London, hauls, lookbooks, etc. So stay tuned!

Today’s Meatless Monday recipe for you is an easy but goodie.  I used to have this treat when I was younger.  Back then, I used to think my mother was weird for drinking this but I souped up the recipe to make it my own.  I have two ways to enjoy this drink, as a shake and as a smoothie.

Avocado Smoothie
the healthier option

Ingredients

1 avocado
1/2 cup nonfat milk
1/2 banana
1/4 cup vanilla or plain greek yogurt
vanilla whey protein (option, this is if you want this to be more filling)
1 tsp agave or sugar or sugar substitute
ice

Directions

Blend everything in a blender and enjoy.

The next recipe is my FAVE, mainly because what I substitute instead of yogurt.  NOMNOMNOM.

Avocado Shake
yes avocado can be a dessert

Ingredients

1 avocado
1/2 cup milk
scoop of vanilla ice cream
ice (if you’d like it creamier)

Directions

Put everything in the blender and blend.  Then enjoy!

Quick tip:  You can add banana to this if you don’t like the avocado flavor.  Also, try adding some cocoa too it.  I’ll save my avocado chocolate pudding for another time.  Don’t knock it til you try it!
