i. love. avocados. But they are so hard to catch at their peak. They are unripe for days and then all of a sudden they are overripe and not at all tasty. What to do?
I hate to throw food out. I tell B when he won't eat that some children don't get the chance that he does and here I am throwing out produce because I missed the expiration. I have promised myself many times that I'll remember when I buy something and use it so I was so mad at myself when my last purchase of avocados were done.
Pinterest to the rescue! What to do with overripe avocados?? Why of course, make a smoothie.
I have been letting some bananas get too ripe, on purpose, so that I can freeze them to use in smoothies. The riper the better for bananas. I had everything else on hand so it was a simple mix to redeem myself. I found this recipe on Happiness is Homemade, I used almond milk and mine didn't need any honey.
- 3 tbsp milk (can also substitute soy milk, almond milk, etc.)
- 1/2 fresh avocado
- 1 small frozen banana
- 4 oz. vanilla Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp Dutch process cocoa powder
- squirt of honey to taste for additional sweetness
Notice how my straw matches my nails?? Didn't do that on purpose either, I'm just that good.
