Avocado-Banana Smoothie

Avocado-Banana Smoothie
My kids are in the middle of finals.  Only two more days to go and they will be done.  I try to make healthy meals and snacks for them.  If they had their way the would live on junk food and Starbucks.  I made them an Avocado-Banana Smoothie for their pick me up the other day.  At first, they were rather hesitant, avocado in a smoothie yeah right.  I told them just to take a sip and if they didn't like it they didn't need to drink any more.  They did try it and seemed to like it because when I went to clean up, the blender was empty.  I am glad I poured myself a glass and did not wait till later.   This was a very good smoothie and my first one with avocado.  It had a nice rich creamy flavor and the avocado and banana combination was perfect.  A  beverage that is nutritious, delicious, and easy.   This is a keeper for me.
