This smoothie tastes like it has yogurt in it. But it is all fruit and water!

    .5 Monroe Avocado; 1 Persimmon; 2 Banana; 12 Strawberry; 20 Black Cherry; 6 Cup Water= SMOOTHIE 


    NO Banana: .5 Monroe Avocado; 1 Persimmon; 23 Strawberry; 29 Black Cherry; 6 Cup Water= ALSO A SMOOTHIE


    Refrigerate Immediately

    I prefer to freeze the fruit for 3 days before  use. This weakens the cell structure of the fruit and allows the release of all those wonderful NATURAL syrupy sugars that make the individual flavors *pop*.  

    Thawing in a microwave just until the fruit yields to a very firm squeeze between the fore-finger and thumb gives the drink a great consistency.

    Black cherries are by far my favorite smoothie/shake ingredient.
    I second your use of avocado -- it'll keep the texture rich and creamy when you're making a lactose-free shake.

    Right, but the good thing is the type of fat in this 100% natural smoothie is good for your body. You needs these right fats to stay healthy.icon_idea.gif

    After all the purification a body does to get rid of the nasty milk fat, soy fat (you don't need both at the same time), yellow 5, disucralosetrimonophosphates, and poooo what are in that pre-packaged smoothie, it is hungry for something to fuel growing all those fabulous muscles!icon_cool.gif

    By the way That is half of a Monroe avocado...not 5 hehe

    Also the fiber needed to cleanse the body of waste (essential in weight loss) from the persimmon and the raw fruit skins make visits to the 'Lou' so enjoyable!icon_neutral.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif

    TMI (too much involvement). I prefer to just eat food, not make it a 3-credit college course. This bespeaks of a level of self-indulgence that is almost disturbing.

    Well, except when it comes to gin martinis, of course, which is where you separate the men from the bois. We have a friend flying in from Amsterdam tonight to stay with us a few weeks, and I'll greet him with a martini using gin I had specially imported, served in a fantastically retro martini glass my partner had commissioned for me from a glass artist. You know the Dutch and gin (being largely Dutch myself).

    Oh, I think I just disproved my point. Nevermind... icon_redface.gif
