Cook's Note:

It's helpful to freeze the banana (depending on what kind of blender you have, freeze the avocado too) in chunks so it'll make the drink cooler.

Only good things to say about this one! I made it exactly as written and also froze my banana in chunks. I also stuck my avocado in the fridge before making it. This made a HUGE serving - 3 cups of deliciousness all to myself! It could easily be split for 2 people though but very filling as a meal for 1. I couldn't taste the cayenne so I might add slightly more next time but either way this doesn't make or break the smoothie. Very healthy! I might even add in more kale next time too. Read More

Good smoothie but I would have like a slightly sweeter taste by adding honey of some sort Read More

I tried this recipe and I loved it. To make it a little figure friendly. I decided to just use Kale and Banana along with some whey protein powder from the health foods store and water instead of coconut water. This is what I drink after a work out. I love how sweet the banana makes it without adding artificial sweeteners and the Kale has such a fresh taste it may not look pretty but it certainly is a really great pick me up after a hard workout.

Instead of Avocado I used oranges and coconut milk instead of coconut water. Only because I didn't have the other ingredients turned out great. Read More

I should have started making smoothies a long time ago. This was awesome. I didn't think the lemon juice made sense with everything else but it was really good. I made it with almond milk instead of coconut water. Read More
