Avocado can make it or break it... This is a fabulous smoothie recipe, and the ingredients go so well together. Just a caveat: don't let your avocado get over-ripe, as it will negatively affect the flavor of this wonderful concoction. It will be somewhat difficult to 'cover it up' with other things (a dollop of plain greek yogurt, a little honey, more raspberries...you get the idea). Use fresh avocados :) Pros: SUPER tasty!

I use avocados in smoothies, but avoid processed juices altogether. A half avocado, cup of frozen mango, 1/2 cup spinach and 1/2 banana are great together with a couple TBSP of fatfree greek yogurt and a splash of water or FF milk (sometimes a little sweetner and almonds). Yummy.

Toddler Approved Sounds gross but even my two toddlers love it. I could do with less juice as it is a bit sweet for me. Maybe add some water instead. Also, if you can't find raspberry juice, apple was a fine substitute. Pros: Good way to use up avacados Cons: A tad too sweet

So yummy! I had to modify this recipe down to one serving, and it still turned out very well!! Definitely recommend you try this recipe, as I was skeptical when trying it, but it's delicious! Pros: You could barely taste the avocado but then the creamy texture of the avocado was still there!

This sounded strange to me at first, but I love avocados, so I decided to give it a try.It's really great! I used a cran-raspberry juice instead of just raspberry juice. Yummy!

Yum! Avocados give the BEST texture. I didn't have raspberry juice, so I used cranberry juice. Also, I like REALLY thick smoothies so I doubled the amount of frozen berries. SO good!

As strange as this recipe sounds, it is delicious. This smoothie makes a great lunch or afternoon snack on a hot summer's day. It really is good.
