BM #98 Week 1 Day 2 - 

For day 2 of cooking for two, I chose an easy way out by making this smoothie. I have been trying to make this smoothie forever but never got around to make.

My little one and I are the only smoothie loving people and we loved this combo. Next time I would add a couple of dates as this smoothie was a little on the bland side for my little one. I later realized that both avocado and cucumber have overtaken the flavor and hence masking the sweetness of banana.

While I was taking these pictures, my camera suddenly stopped working [the auto focus stopped working] and gave me a hard time to finally figure out the solution [Accidentally the AF button was moved to Manual]. So I had to take these pictures on my mobile.

Ingredients - 

Avocado 1/2
Cucumber chopped 3/4 cup
Banana 1 medium
Almonds 8-10
Milk 1 1/2 cups
Mint leaves few (Optional - I have tried with and without)

Method Of Preparation -

Blend all the ingredients together into a smoothie.

Garnish with Dried Mint Powder and mint leaves.


Preparation Time 5 minutes
Serves 2
