Mmmmm....smoothie

I haven't posted a recipe (or much else, for that matter) in a while, so I thought I would share the recipe for what I'm currently drinking:  a brownie batter smoothie.  

I LOVE avocados.  They are so good for you: good fat, fiber, vitamins and minerals out the wazoo.  They're also creamy and delicious, plus they freeze well!  Who knew?   When I read that, I started stocking up when they came on sale.   I buy a few at a time, scoop 'em out, cut the flesh into chunks, and freeze on a baking sheet.  Then I just pop the frozen pieces into a zippered baggie.

When I want to make this smoothie, I defrost some chunks until they aren't rock-solid (my blender doesn't like super frozen things) and make THIS:

1/2 frozen avocado
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
sweetener of choice ( I used 1 tablespoon of honey)
1/2 teaspoon each vanilla and butter extract

You could add some nut butter in there, too, if you want.  Just put the milk in the blender, and then put in the other ingredients and blend until smooth.
