Vegan Avocado Superfood Smoothie

I have always hated avocado. When I tell people this, I usually get one of two reactions. The first is another avocado hater who is so happy to find a kindred spirit as most people think we are so weird…just because we have an aversion to avocado. We are so happy and revel that we are not the only ones.

The second is when people look at me as if I have 4 heads with their mouths just gaping open in shock! I love when people tell me – oh it’s because it’s a new flavor. You will get accustomed to it. America has discovered the avocado in recent years, but it is a food that has a long history in the part of the world where my family is from.

My parents are Caribbean and one of those parents was Haitian. For Haitian people, avocado salad is their basic salad, I grew up with avocado on my dinner table every single night and I NEVER ate it. My sisters even used to tease me and say I must be adopted since I don’t like avocado, That is how much of a staple it is in our cultural cuisine.

My Mom buys a bag of avocados every single week and has 1/2 an avocado every morning with her breakfast. I stayed at her for some days after she came home when she was in the hospital last month. I decided to use the opportunity to add some avocado content to the site. There was someone else to enjoy my avocado creations since I wasn’t going to be eating it. But then I thought what if I could come up with a delicious smoothie full of superfood goodness and heart healthy avocado for other avocado haters like me who want all the goodness that avocado provides, but doesn’t want to taste it…

My sister lives just two doors down from her, so I raided both apartments to get as much fruit as I could, hoping it would mask the flavor of the avocado. I added some ginger and turmeric for more superfood goodness and came up with this delicious smoothie that was so good, I barely wanted to share it with my Mom and sister.

    Avocados, mango and apple smoothie sounds great . Like you, I never like avocados until recently when my son mashed it to put on his toast and asked me to taste it . Now I love it in my salads. It is certainly a super fruit.

    We had an avocado tree in our garden where I was growing up. At that time, it was not such a poplar fruit but my grandfather would add salt and lemon and would tell us to eat it up. I love avocado and adding mango and kiwi to the smoothie makes it so wholesome and filling. A good way for you to enjoy an avocado even thought you don’t like it.

    This looks so good! I have always been skeptical of avocado in a smoothie. I think mostly because of the texture, but yours looks like a perfect texture, so I really want to give it a try!

  4. Laura

    I really like recipes that allow to enjoy the benefits of certain products without actually including those ingredients into the meal! This works great for my guests just as much as for me! Everyone has their own preferences, so the more recipes like this are in my collection the easier it is for me to prep. Fantastic smoothie!
