Avocado & Caramel Breakfast Smoothie

Standard

FullSizeRenderThis creamy breakfast smoothie is a regular in our household and one that you really must try out the next time you buy avocados. Not only is it super healthy and downright delicious, but I had Keya asking me for ‘some more please’ when she was done. Doesn’t it just warm your heart when your child genuinely appreciates what you cooked for them? It is such an easy recipe to whip up on a busy weekday morning and a great way to feed avocado to a child who might otherwise resist eating plain avocado. I added a small pinch of cocoa powder for a richer brown colour. Feel free to leave this out if you want 🙂

Nutrition report: Avocado is a hi-fiber superfood rich in Vitamin B &K, Potassium, Folate and Copper. It is a great source of mono unsaturated (good) fats and is great for good hair and skin health. Full fat cow’s milk is rich in calcium, protein and vitamins.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1-1/2 cups of cold full fat cows milk
  • 2 tbsp Honey + 1 tbsp brown sugar / OR / 2 tbsp of store-bought caramel syrup
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder, sifted (optional)

To make:

  1. Peel, de-seed and scoop the flesh of one ripe avocado into your blender. Add a few spoons of milk and puree till super smooth.
  2. Add the remaining milk , honey and brown sugar and sifted cocoa powder (if using) and blend till nicely combined.
  3. Pour into your childs favourite glass and serve cold 🙂

Enjoy!
