Avocado and strawberry smoothie

The spring sunshine will soon have you reaching for a cool, refreshing beverage. Let this avocado and strawberry smoothie satiate your pallet whilst you sit outside soaking up the rays. 

Now, before you start rolling your eyes, I do appreciate that you may be tired of people trying to ram avocado down your throat. This fruit seems to have developed a cult-like following; it wouldn’t surprise me if there was some sort of avocado-based religion.

However, if ever there were a food that deserved to be elevated to the level of a deity, then it’s probably the avocado. If you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of years and have not yet been told what makes avocado a superfood, allow us to enlighten you...
