Avocado Lime Smoothie Recipe Tips
- First, you really need that easy to make Avocado Ice Cream. However, you can use store bought ice cream, but I highly recommend giving this one a try.
- Also, don’t skip the lime zest, it adds the most amazing refreshing flavor.
- You can use any non-diary or even diary milk. But I highly recommend using coconut milk as the flavor works well in this recipe and it adds extra creaminess.
- Similarly you can use 1/2 cup of frozen avocado and 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream, instead of avocado ice cream.
- If you plan on freezing avocados for this recipe, first remove the peel and pit them. Then, measure how much you need and freeze in ziplock bags.
- Adjust the natural sweetener quantity to your taste.
Here is a list of my favorite refreshing summer drinks:
- Dulce de Leche Spicy Coffee – it will save you money and will awaken your taste buds
- Cherry Kiwi Iced Tea – made with a bunch of sweet fruits and sweetened with cherry syrup
- Raspberry Coffee Smoothie – gorgeous color and flavor, add some vanilla protein if you want to transform it into a meal
- Dark Chocolate Mint Milkshakes – my way of indulging without going overboard
