What goes well with avocado?
You have the choice to blend your avocado with frozen or fresh bananas, blueberries or even pineapples! For some greener options, kale or cucumber go perfectly well with avocados!
For today’s recipe, we’ll be using fresh avocado and frozen bananas to achieve this delicious, creamy texture. As a natural sweetener, honey is a great option, but you’re welcome to substitute with either maple syrup or sweetened condensed milk.
If you’re lactose intolerant, you can replace the milk with either almond milk, soy milk or coconut milk. The possibilities are endless!
