Author Notes: It is frigid in Minnesota right now, and a conversation with my best friend, who now lives in San Diego, left me craving a little California sunshine. So, I blended together avocado, citrus, and coconut for a hit of sunshine in spoonable form.fiveandspice

Serves 2

  • 1 whole avocado
  • 1 banana (frozen, if desired)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (the first time I made this I used a couple whole, peeled clementines, which was also good albeit a little pulpy)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1 pinch salt
  1. Peel and pit the avocado, and cut it into chunks. Peel the banana and break it into chunks.
  2. Combine everything in a blender and blend until smooth - about one minute. (If you'd like more sweetness you can add a little honey.) Divide between two large cups or bowls and serve.

I really dislike bananas. A lot. What could I use as a good replacement?

So sorry to take forever to respond to your question! I'm rather behind on things these days! Anyway, you might try frozen mango chunks. I think that would be good.

I use coconut milk from a can. I usually use Thai Kitchen Organic brand or there's a brand called Native Forest and another called Arroy-D that both make good canned coconut milk.
