Avocado Smoothie

A thick and creamy beverage made from fruit with either dairy or non-dairy products blended together is a healthier way to begin a day. There is no hard and fast rule when coming to making smoothies. Just play around with the dairy or non-dairy milk or yogurt choices, and a couple of fruits (fresh or frozen) for a filling breakfast or a snack. This is also a great way of making the pickier ones have the fruit(s) which they dislike. Smoothies are delicious and nutritious and should be a choice to substitute a meal during this shelter in place/lockdown situations. The benefits are you get your share of nutrition and you can manage on using the fresh or frozen fruits that are at your hand without stepping outside. It is so simple and filling meal to substitute any elaborate meals that help to maintain our health and managing weight.  

 Many things in your day to day life may go wrong but this avocado smoothie isn't. Avocado smoothie, a delicious and creamy one isn't complicated at all to make. Its only three ingredients and just blend them for a nutritious meal or snack. This is often enjoyed in our home. Since avocado is bland, I add some sugar. You can alternate it with a banana.

Whenever I make this, I remember those days of my travel to Wayanad. I used to have this in a bakery and juice shop. They call it a butter fruit shake. No ice cream is added but the buttery avocado is enough to make it smoother and creamier and hence apt to be called butter fruit. After my work, I used to go to that particular bakery and order this satisfying drink as I would have skipped my lunch. It would energize me back to my full form from exhaustion.
