Grapefruit Avocado Smoothie


We were chatting at work about food (a favorite topic of mine) and we somehow happened on the discussion of avocados.  I mentioned that I add them to some smoothies which raised a couple eyebrows.  And then I hit'em with a bang when I mentioned that I also throw in sprouts. 

But I can assure you, the taste is quite delish.

I was inspired by the original recipe from Golubka, and made one small modification to sweeten it just a little bit.  I blame it on my darn sweet tooth.


The Shopping List:
  • 2 grapefruits, juiced
  • 1 banana
  • 1 avocado
  • a smidgen of fresh ginger
  • 1 cup sprouts
  • 2 Tbsp honey
The Method:

Easie-piesie, add all ingredients into a blender and puree.  The sprouts add a little bit of texture, and the taste is quite springy and refreshing.  A great post-run snack.
