Banana Avocado 'Ice Cream'

March 16, 2015


Author Notes: My completely raw and vegan, creamy, creamy, sweet and cinnamon-y smoothie bowl variation: Banana-Avocado ‘Ice Cream’. Sometimes I douse it in shaved coconut ‘sprinkles’, sometimes I add so many berries the smoothie is hardly visible, sometimes I add nuts. I always serve this GREEN (really green) nutrient packed masterpiece with the first of my many daily coffees to welcome the day.
