Avocado Green Drink

Cheap Eat Challenge, Part 2: Watch as our family of 6 eats on less than $10/day.


Motto: Looks like swamp sludge, tastes like yum.

My sister has a vitamix blender (swoon). She made us these the other day and they looked, um, really gross, but they tasted so good you will not believe.

And while we talk of things you won't believe--avocado in your green drink is wonderful--creamy and rich. Try it; you'll see. 

Avocado Green Drink
Serves 2-4
Prep time: 3 minutes
Cost: $1.75
(kale: .30, strawberries: .40, avocado: .50, apple juice: .40, banana: .15)

3-4 large kale leaves (with a good blender you can leave the ribs in; with a normal blender, cut the big middle ones out)
1 1/2 C frozen strawberries
1/2 avocado
1 RIPE banana (not rotten, but not green--lots of brown spots=good)
2 1/2 C apple juice (this is a bit much and if you are used to ugly green brown drinks, you can use some water for some or all of the apple juice, but we went the low road and had ours apple juice sweet)

Blend in blender. Consume. With eyes close if necessary. You won't regret it.
