Mango, Avocado, and Banana Smoothie

It all started with a silly T.V. commercial for a dinner special at Chili's. We were mesmerized by a close-up of a bright, perfectly chopped avocado-and-mango salsa being tumbled in such a carefree way across a blank-canvas protein. And that was it. We were done for. We just had to combine those two flavors some way, somehow. Kind of a stretch, but here it is.

One of us swore up and down that this creation was a smoothie while the other, eating it with a spoon, said that it was definitely more of a pudding. While there was some disagreement as to what this concoction actually is, we both agreed that it was delicious whether you drink it from a cup or eat it with a spoon.

Mango, Avocado, and Banana Smoothie

1 mango (diced, about 3/4 cup)
1 avocado (diced, about 3/4 cup)
1 peeled, frozen banana (about 3/4 cup)
1 1/2 cups skim milk (or plant milk of your choice)
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
juice 1/2 lime
2 tablespoons honey

Place the mango, avocado, banana, milk, salt, lime juice, and honey into the blender and blend until smooth. (Serves 2.)

Just made this and it was delicious and filling. I added a cup of chopped kale just for kicks.

I had all these ingredients in the house, so I decided to give it a go...delicious! The lime juice gives it a fruity flavor (perfect for spring/summer). Thanks!
