I am still hooked on fresh juice since participating in my Juice Challenge. I made a Rainbow Sherbet juice this past Monday, and I was craving it the instant I woke up yesterday. I wanted to try making it into a smoothie, so I combined the fresh juice with some avocado and ice cubes and blended it up in my Vitamix. It turned out rich, and creamy, and kept me full and energized until lunch!

I love throwing avocados in my smoothies because it adds a dose of healthy fats, fiber, tons of  nutrients, and adds thickness. I’m a huge fan of thick smoothies, so avocados are always my go to when I want to get a creamy consistency.

    I’m loving your blog and starting next week I’ll be visiting it frequently for ideas as I start my raw food diet! I would like to ask, where did you get the silver straw pictured above? Thanks! =)

    Am in love with your blog!!! Thank you for all the amazing tips & recipes. You are such an inspiration 🙂 I have a quick question for you… I’m thinking of doing the 5 day juicing challenge you did. What is your take on juicing vs. making smoothies? Why do I want to make it juice, instead of blending and keeping the pulp from the fruit at least?

    Mmm sounds delish! I gotta try this! I am currently obsessed with avocado smoothies.
    Here’s my recipe:
    1 avocado
    1/2-1 banana(even better if frozen)
    Splash of milk
    Some ice (not quite sure how much I put in)
    1tsp vanilla extract
    Blend ’till smooth and enjoy creaminess! I think it could be sweetened a bit with some agave but I’ve yet to try it.
    Love your blog!!!
