Avocado in my smoothie

Happy Friday!

Just like Julie at Peanut Butter Fingers, my morning got off to an early start too.

4:30 AM the alarm was screaming and I was all like what! what! Is this a fire alarm??!

But no.  I was supposed to be up at that crazy hour so I could drive my BFF Hal Gal and Grier to the airport.  For some reason, my big sister and I thought it would be a great adventure.

And while it wasn’t my absolute favorite way to start a morning, it wasn’t so bad!!  I hope my pals have a safe trip and so much fun!

After sleeping for a few more hours, I got up for breakfast because I have class at 9 AM.



Polenta with black beans, avocado and hot sauce?

Those were my choices.

P.S. Have y’all tried polenta?? SO GOOD!

A smoothie is probs what I wanted the least but I also felt lazy so a blended meal with minor dishes it was!

And guess what new ingredient I used today………….


I saw a avocado smoothie recipe on pinterest and figured it would be great.  They’re so smooth and creamy.  Why not!

In the blender went………..

  • 1/4 of an avocado
  • 1.5 ripe bananas
  • 1 big tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 big tablespoon PB
  • lots of spinach
  • water
  • 4 ice cubes precisely

Blend, blend, blend in the new KItchen Aid Mixer (this blender is a beast)

And bam!


The most icky looking smoothie I’ve ever laid eyes on.  But it tasted like chocolate PB AND it was extra creamy and thick from the avocado.  I’ll take it 😀

What are your weekend plans?!

Class, tutoring, a little volunteering and maybe hiking the M is on the agenda for the day!  Catch y’all later!
