It's really yummy!

I have been enjoying a similar recipe since I was a kid because we have an avocado tree, but I had to try this exact recipe as well since I haven't used lime before. You can also use chilled all purpose cream or plain yoghurt (if you're on a diet) and use honey instead of sugar. I am glad this recipe is featured now so others can enjoy it as well.

I kept going back and looking at this recipe but had my doubts....well its like the old saying goes.....try it you'll like it!!! I was blown away by the richness and flavor of this drink. I love avocadoes any way you serve them and this is definitely one of the best ways to have them.

Delicious

My husband, daughter and I have really been into smoothies this summer. My daughter was joking about different things to put in them one day and I suggested avocados. She thought that was grose. Well, the next day I found this recipe on this site. We tried them and Yum! We all enjoy these!

great!

I had this last night to celebrate the 4th of July as I had worked hard all day (I work in retail) and was hot and tired! This was very refreshing!
