Adventures in Life celebrates the adventures everyone has in their lives, big or small. Not just the traditionally bloggable ones.

It started as an ideal, a way to present the world through unusual, poetic, or imaginative perspectives. A blog for life’s poetry.

So I certainly didn’t expect the first post to be about a smoothie.

The thing is, it was hot one day, and mum was a genius. I’ll let her tell the rest…

It was hot.

I really wanted a smoothie.

Frozen banana and frozen blueberries with coconut yoghurt and coconut water. Heaven. Except…

I was off all fruit except cherries. Long story.

What about a green smoothie? Would it taste OK without a sweetener? And what would go into it? Kale, avocado, coconut water, and …?

Add some ice.

Wow. Amazing. It was the absolute best!

Welcome to the sugar free, fruit free, green smoothie!

Well, that’s not quite true. The star of the show is avocado, which is actually a fruit.

                                      ∼ Kind of like the platypus, the avocado is between worlds ∼

Here’s how you make it:

1 avocado

250ml coconut water

120ml coconut yoghurt

1/3 bunch kale leaves

pinch nutmeg

pinch cinnamon

1 cup ice

Whizz all ingredients on smoothie setting in blender.

Serve in tall glass (makes 2)
