Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes
  • Please make sure that you use cream of coconut. It is thick like sweetened condensed milk. Using coconut milk or coconut water will dramatically affect the outcome and should not be used. Cream of coconut can be found in your grocery store with the cocktail mixes or with the foreign foods.
  • Add more milk if you like your smoothie thinner, more ice if you like it thicker.

I changed the recipe so that I could enjoy this! I used plain yogurt instead of vanilla, and soy milk instead of whole milk. I used equal amounts of ground coconut and water instead of cream of coconut. Then, I forgot to add the ice cubes! This turned into a smooth, rich smoothie! Wonderful recipe, even with my adaptations!

Funny - made this for Hubs this morning and he slurped it up heartily- he said it was good, and that he really enjoyed it. Only after he was done with it did I ask, "Do you wanna know what that was? What was in it?" Once I told him, he replied with a grimace, "Oh, THAT'S what that odd taste was." Just like a kid. Seriously, I did have my doubts but I had all the ingredients on hand as specified in the recipe. And if it didn't work the avocado would have more than likely gotten tossed anyway. It was creamy, smooth and different. Delicately flavored, so it's hard to isolate what, exactly, is in it. Pretty light green, good for you (avocado is a "good" fat), and a creative and different twist on the typical fruit based smoothies. Try it on your hubs - just don't tell him it's AVOCADO he's drinking until it's gone - if ever.

I haven't tried freezing it, but it is one great smoothie!! I went with a friend to an asian restaurant and she ordered an avocado smoothie. I wasn't quite brave enough to try it, and after trying hers I went looking for a recipe. This one fits the bill! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

This is amazingly good. I've never had an avocado smoothie before, but love avocado so was intrigued when I saw the recipe. It's delicious and not very sweet. I don't like overly sweet things. I made mine w/plain Greek yogurt and 1% milk, and it came out just fine. Thank you to the OP.

I soo love this recipe, I can't get enough of this. I tend to add a bit more cream of coconut and a bit more soy milk. I also added a banana the other day and that was real good too.

Good! I would rate it 4 stars but my two daughers (ages 6 & 4)loved it so I'll give it 5 stars, I used coconut milk instead of reg. milk, after blending I taste it and it was lightly sweet so I added about 3 tbsp. of honey and it was perfectly sweet! Thanks Heather! Elvira S. Phx, Arizona.

What is interesting, this is a typical Brazilian vitamine drink, as they call it. And normally here they add a banana also. Avocado here in Brazil is considered a fruit, and not eaten at all the American way (very rare) in salads, with advocado hot sauce for chips, but cut it open, sprinkle sugar on it, and eat it that way.
