Avocado Ginger Smoothie

 

If you've never had avocado in a smoothie, you're missing out! It adds a rich creamy texture and unites the flavors and sweetness of the other ingredients. If you like a colder smoothie, try using frozen avocado and/or banana. If you're not feeding a crowd (like we do here at the retreat) half the recipe to make a smaller amount.
