Avocado Smoothie

For those of you who have followed my blog since the beginning you probably have noticed that I have posted a few recipes I learned while on my mission in Brazil. This is another one of those recipes. I was first introduced to avocado smoothies in the MTC in Brazil. My teacher took us to a little corner shop that made smoothies of every fruit imaginable. He recommended the avocado smoothie. I thought to myself... "this is probably going to taste like guacamole in a glass!" But I gave it a try. And what do you know, I liked it! And today I would like to share this simple and delicious creation with you. :)

Avocado Smoothie
1 avocado 
(if you want tips on how to choose an avocado leave a comment) 
1 large banana
2 cups milk
3 Tbs. sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Remove the pit and skin from the avocado and place it in a blender. Now add the banana. Pour approximately 2 cups of milk in as well. (You can adjust the milk. If you like thicker smoothies add less milk, thinner smoothies add more.) Lastly, add the sugar and vanilla. (The vanilla is an addition Dustin and I like but not included in the traditional Brazilian avocado smoothie.) Blend until smooth and serve immediately! 
The end!
