Strawberry Avocado Smoothie (Kid-Approved, Non-Dairy Recipe)

This recipe happened because I was looking for a way to get more veggies into the kids (and me). Their two favorite smoothies both contain only fruits. None of us really like plain avocadoes, and only one of us likes guacamole, so I'm always looking for new ways to slip those in.

This recipe is approved by both the five-year-old and the twelve-year-old, and believe me, they are just as picky as most kids. :-/ (I did, however, wait until they had both finished the smoothie and asked for seconds before I told them it had avocado. The 5yo tried to make a face, but I told him he was busted. He'd already talked too much about how he liked it.)


2 cups frozen strawberries
1 avocado
1 cup orange juice
1 cup unsweetened apple juice

Makes about 3 12-oz servings.
