Avocado Smoothie
i had frozen my avocados and was looking for a smoothie recipe that i could use them in, so i tried this one. Now i have a new favorite! I try to stick to the recipe when I try it for the first time however I didn't have vanilla yogurt so I used nonfat plain organic yogurt. We tasted and my husband wanted the vanilla taste so I added 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and it made a big difference. I'd rather not have the extra fat and calories from the milk so I may replace that with unsweetened coconut or almond milk next time. As is it is very delicious. It didn't appear to separate. It will brown a little as it is left out. I don't know how it will keep in fridge as we didn't have any leftovers.

Cucumber and Dill Pasta Salad
We make this Pasta Salad all summer long for all our summer parties and for lunch and dinner sides during the week. I am not a fan of the usual pasta and potato salads at BBQ's. They are way too heavy for me. I love the lightness of this pasta salad. I love being able to use my veggies that grow in abundance in my garden along with my fresh dill although I frequently use 1 T dry dill which adds up to be more than what the recipe calls for. We also sometimes substitute the sour cream for greek yogurt (fage) or go halfsies. We also use 1/4 cup whole milk instead of the skim milk it calls for. We tried cutting back on the salt but this recipe really needs it along with plain shaker style black pepper. We tried using whole wheat pasta but it doesn't work well with this recipe. We enjoy the spiral type pasta or regular elbows. This pasta salad is the perfect answer for those looking for a lighter variation of the normal macaroni salad.
